It was the soldier, not the poet, Gave us freedom of expression. ?Twas the soldier, not the preacher, Gave us freedom of religion. ?Twas the soldier, not Trade Unions, Gave us better work conditions. And ?twas the soldier made this country free, Not party politicians. Freedom from Want, Freedom from Fear, And Freedom of Speech which we hold dear. ?Lest We Forget? are words we say When marching every Anzac Day. So keep alight that undying flame To honour those who deserve great fame.
