When 1914 began, he was working on the land with his mum and dad
He left behind his girl, joined up to see the world, it made his mother sad
And he made it through the war, and came back to town
To help his father work the fields and rebuild his life somehow
And everybody calls him the ANZAC and that’s still what they call him now

He set his mind to stay when his father passed away and the rivers ran dry
He said “I’ll take care of you mum, I’ve fought before and won, we can win this fight”
And all alone he’d work all day until he’d drop, until the place got back to best he didn’t stop
There were times he thought he’d been forgotten
But every night at six o’clock

Well they all stand for that man they called the ANZAC
Those who gave their lives for us
They’d stand for that man they called the ANZAC
For fighting for the land he loves

At the same time every year we all remember them
At the crack of dawn we stand as one for all our fallen friends
So we stand for that man we call the ANZAC
We will remember them

So stand for that man we call the ANZAC
For those who gave their lives for us
They stand for that man we call the ANZAC
For fighting for the land that he loves

Oh, we stand for that man we call the ANZAC
For fighting for the land that he loves

We will remember
