Sleep, Australia, sleep

The night is on the creep

Shut out the noise all around

Who’ll rock the cradle and cry?

Sleep, Australia, sleep
C               F                             C
As off the cliff the kingdoms leap

Count them as they say goodbye

[Verse 2]
F
Count down the little things
C
The insects and birds
Am
Count down the bigger things
G
The flocks and the herds

Count down our rivers
C
Our pastures and trees

But there’s no need to hurry

Oh, sleep now, don’t worry

‘Coz it’s only a matter of degrees

Our children might know them

But their children will not

We won’t know ’til it’s gone
G
All the glory we’ve got
F
But there are more wonders coming
C
All new kinds of shows
Am
With acid seas rising
C
To kiss coastal mountains
Am
Big cyclones pounding
C
And firestorms devouring
Am
And we’ll lose track of counting
C
As the corpses keep mounting
C Am G
But hey, that’s just the way this old world goes

[Outro]
C
Sleep, my country, sleep
C F C
As we sow so shall we reap
C G C
Who’ll rock the cradle and cry?
