2.My father worked a twelve hour day       4.Mama gave birth to a strangers child
  As a stockman on the station               A child she called her own
  The very same work but no the same pay     Strangers came and took away that child
  As his white companions                    To a strangers home

3.Mother and father loved each other well  5.I never spoke my mother's tongue
  But together they could not stay           I never knew my name
  They were split up against their will      I never learned the songs she sung
  Until their dying day                      I was raised in shame
