Don't say goodbye
My child
And always look behind you
To that beautiful wild
And all the things that remind you
Of being free
That remind you of being free
Nopun kurongk, nukun kurongk

Oh I sang my song
To some children in Meningie
And a feeling so strong
Started coming over me
Like I was free
Yeah it felt like I was free
Nopun kurongk, nukun kurongk

My grandmother I can see
Wrapped around her thatki (need to check spelling of this word with Ruby's family)
Standing safely on the shore
Underneath the dress she wore
We were hidden secretly from the welfare 'cause you see
Granny knew they'd taken children
Many times before
Nopun kurongk, nukun kurongk
Nopun kurongk, nukun kurongk

Say goodbye to my pain
These city shadows chill me to the bone
Oh I'm going back again
To that place where they took me from
To my home
Lord, oh I feel like going home
Nopun kurongk, nukun kurongk

Go to the river
Look to the river
