A.B. Original – January 26 (feat. Dan Sultan) (Reclaim Australia Album) letras

[Hook: Dan Sultan & Briggs]
You can call it what you want
But it just don’t mean a thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Fuck that, homie
You can come and wave your flag
But it don’t mean a thing to me
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Fuck that, homie
You can call it what you want
But it just don’t mean a thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Fuck that, homie
You can come and wave your flag
But it don’t mean a thing to me
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Fuck that, homie

[Verse 1: Briggs]
They said, "Hey Briggs, pick a date" (okay)
"You know, one we can celebrate" (for sure)
"Where we can come together (yeah)
Talk about the weather, call that Australia Day"
I said, "How about March 8th?" (that’s a good one)
And we can do it on your Nan’s grave (got that bitch!)
We can piss up, piss on her face
Get lit up and burn out like Mark Skaife
They screaming "love it or leave it" (love it!)
I got more reason to be here, if you could believe it
Won’t salute a constitution or who’s underneath it
Turn that flag to a noose, put a cease to your breathing
I can’t get in my whip, I get a ticket for that
I get a DWB, and that’s a "Driving Whilst Black"
I turn the other cheek, I get a knife in my back
And I tell ’em it hurts, they say I overreact
So fuck that (fuck that!)

[Hook: Dan Sultan & Briggs (Trials)]
You can call it what you want
But it just don’t mean a thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing
(Hey Briggs!) Fuck that, homie
You can come and wave your flag
But it don’t mean a thing to me
No, it just don’t mean a thing

[Verse 2: Trials]
I said celebrate the heretic anytime outside Jan. 26 (anytime)
That’s the date for them suckers doing that sucker shit (that’s true!)
That’s that land taking, flag waving attitude
Got this new Captain Cook dance to show you how to move (move it!)
How you wanna raise a flag with a rifle
To make us want to celebrate anything but survival?
Nah, you watching tele for The Bachelor
But wouldn’t read a book about a fuckload of massacres? (what!)
I remember all the blood and what carried us (I remember)
They remember twenty recipes for lamingtons (yum)
Yeah, their ancestors got a boatride
Both mine saw them coming until they both died
Fuck celebrating days made of misery (fuck that)
White Aus still got the black history (that’s true)
And that shirt will get you banned from the parliament
If you ain’t having a conversation, well then we starting it

[Hook: Dan Sultan & Briggs]
You can call it what you want
But it just don’t mean a thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Fuck that, homie
You can come and wave your flag
But it don’t mean a thing to me
No, it just don’t mean a thing

[Bridge: Dan Sultan & Trials
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Nah, it just don’t mean a thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Nah, it just don’t mean a thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Nah, it just don’t mean a thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing
Nah, it just don’t mean a
Mother—fuckin’ thing
No, it just don’t mean a thing

[Outro: Briggs]
Wave it, wave it baby
Wave it, wave it (eat the flag)
Wave it, wave it mama
Wave that flaggy (wear the flag)
Wave it, wave it baby (what you gonna do?!)
Wave it, wave it (wave it baby!)
Wave it, wave it mama
Wave that flaggy
