"Diggers of the ANZAC" as written by and John Williamson....
Things'll never be the same in Port Lincoln
Since they rolled the cameras there
Roll up and be a movie extra
Take it lightly if you dare

Give the man a uniform
Give the man a gun
He's your younger brother
He's your only son

This is Gallipoli
They coulda been ya mates
They coulda been me

Ya can't blame a bloke who likes adventure
He saw the posters on the wall
See the world through the sights of a rifle
Grab ya mates and go to war

And give the man a bayonet
Give the man a hat
Land him on the beaches
Eight thousand never came back
A rat-a-tat-tat

This is Gallipoli
And don't you forget
You are the Diggers of the Anzac

Slap bang in the middle of an ambush
The johnny turk was all around
Sitting ducks fled like nine-pins
But the Diggers held their ground

And men like Simpson upheld the spirit
Of the Digger who gives a mate a hand
And in the end they showed the world
The spirit of Australia

So things'll never be the same in Port Lincoln
Since they made a movie there
Knock off the shearing
And knock off the fishing
Bring up the clippers and knock off the hair

Give the man a uniform
Give the man a gun
He's your younger brother
He's your only son

This is Gallipoli
And don't you forget
You are the Diggers of the Anzac

This is Gallipoli
And don't you forget
You are the Diggers of the Anzac

[Repeat to fade]
