A Mighty Long Way
Words & Music by Glyn Lehmann

Intro
If you ask us what's so great about the place that we come from
We'd still be singing 'til the cows come home
There's so much that we could say
Before they drag us all away
Let's do it anyway!

Chorus
From Manjimup to Marble Bar
From Kununnarra to Mandurah
You'd have to go a mighty long way
To find a place like W, WA

Verse 1
Miles and miles of coastline
Forests that grow so high
Flowers that bloom in the desert
Look up to the endless blue sky

Verse 2
Treasures are buried below us
Diamonds and oil and gold
The dolphins of Monkey Mia
A treasure that cannot be sold

Bridge
You might say it's a mighty long way
From the Swan to Botany Bay
But we'd say that's a small price to pay
To find a place like W, WA

Interlude
We've got the West Coast Eagles - Eagles!
We’ve got The Dockers too - Freo!
We've got the Bungle Bungles
How 'bout you?

Rap
We got the quokka and the WACA and the Cocklebiddy Caves
The Doctor's cool, there's a Rock like a Wave!
We come from near and we come from afar
We're the kids from the WEST
That's WHO WE ARE!

Chorus
From Manjimup to Marble Bar
From Kununnarra to Mandurah
You'd have to go a mighty long way
To find a place like W, WA

You'd have to go a mighty long way
To find a place like WA
It's like finding a needle in the hay
To find a place like W, WA
