Written as a tribute for my Uncle Charlie Pearce and all our WW1 Anzac Legends

lyrics

The sun rises, over Gallipoli, starts our special day, Anzac day
Let’s remember them and how they stood tall
Our first Aussies fighting our first world war
Let’s remember them, for what they loved best
Let’s have a few beers and place a few bets

We salute you, our Anzac Legends, we salute you

The sun rises, over Gallipoli, starts our special day, Anzac day
The music plays, echoes the last post
Our brave young Anzacs fighting on enemy cost
At the going down, of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them

We salute you, our Anzac Legends, we salute you

Spoken
My great uncle Charlie served in Gallipoli, he was considered old at 23
So he scampered across the pitch black sand, loaded gun in his shaking hand
Wasn’t long before he copped a bullet in leg, one in the chest and a
Fatal blow to the head
RIP Uncle Charlie, for putting your life at stake
We will never forget you, for making this Country Safe
