You won’t listen to my songs any more
You ripped my poster off the wall
Cause I’m the singer that went to the war
You see no good in me at all
Well pardon me if I believe I haven’t got it wrong
And before you turn your back on me I’ll sing you one more song

Cause I shook hands with a digger
On the wrong side of the world
With a wife at home who holds her breath
And brand new baby girl
And the digger fights for freedom in a job that must be done
And I let go of his hand, so proud to be Australian

And if unlike me you feel no pride at all
Then go ahead and take me off your wall
Cause I’d prefer to be a poster girl
On the wrong side of the world

And I’m just the girl that sings the crazy songs
Not qualified to sit and judge
I’ve been right and I know I’ve been wrong
But I’m for peace and I’m for love
And I admire the burning fire that causes you to fight
I only wish the wrong side of the world had the same right

Cause I listened to the wisdom of the Aussie brigadier
He spoke of widows and of orphans and the need to dry their tears
And he leads the fight for freedom in a job that must be done
And I’ve never been more proud to say that I’m Australian

And if unlike me you feel no pride at all
Then go ahead and take me off your wall
Cause I’d prefer to be a poster girl
On the wrong side of the world

Maybe I’m naïve to think we all could get along
And sir, I read your words
And all I ask is hear my song

I shook hands with a digger
On the wrong side of the world
With a wife at home who holds her breath
And brand new baby girl
And the digger fights for freedom in a job that must be done
And I let go of his hand, so proud to be Australian

And if unlike me you feel no pride at all
Then go ahead and take me off your wall
Cause I’d prefer to be a poster girl
On the wrong side of the world

I’m so proud to be a poster girl
On the wrong side of the world
