Mari’s Hope

I’m looking for my lover,
I’m looking for my friend,
A handsome Aboriginal,
Who’ll be my soul mate til’ the end.

Lonely as I am sometimes,
I’ll always live in hope,
For my very special Koori fella,
With whom I might elope.

And the day will come you’ll see,
When I find my handsome beau,
A koori man from dreamtime,
Off together we will go.
