I think we need a Republic to stand on our feet at last
and get out from the shadow ‘the old country’ has cast.
While it cannot change the past; what’s done ‘twas us who did
At least behind the Union Jack our identity won’t be hid.
It’s time that we just grew up a bit for all its good and bad
and moved out of the house; away from Mum and Dad.
Until we stand alone, I feel, we’ll never stand up tall
We’ll make our own decisions as growns up to stand or fall.
