We’re Just Passing Through

We’re Just Passing Through – Words and Music Terry Bennetts 2005

THIS ROAD THAT WE TRAVEL WILL END MATE
HOW YOU RIDE IT IS ALL UP TO YOU
SO LOOK AFTER YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS MATE
AND LIVE LIKE YOU’RE JUST PASSING THROUGH

I KNOW TOO MANY FOLK WHO ARE ALWAYS AT WORK
EVERY DAY FROM DAWN INTO DUSK
AND THE WEEKS AND THE YEARS FLY BY SO FAST
(THEY’RE) ALWAYS IN SO MUCH OF A RUSH

NOW I SEE NOTHING WRONG WITH WORKING TOO HARD
IT’S MADE AUSTRALIA WHAT IT IS TODAY
JUST NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT YOU’RE WORKING FOR
OR IT ALL JUST MAY FADE AWAY

FOR THIS ROAD THAT WE TRAVEL WILL END MATE
HOW YOU RIDE IT IS ALL UP TO YOU
SO LOOK AFTER YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS MATE
AND REMEMBER WE’RE JUST PASSING THROUGH

NOW SOME PEOPLE TRAVEL WITH GRACE AND STYLE
SOME JUST TAKE EACH DAY AS IT COMES
AND THERE ARE THOSE WITH THIS NEED TO PASS ALL IN THERE WAY
BUT THIS IS NOT A RACE TO BE WON

AND THIS LAND THAT WE’RE BLESSED TO JOURNEY UPON
BE GOOD TO HER AND DON’T JUST MAKE DO
AND TRY TO PASS HER ON IN FAR BETTER SHAPE
THAN WHEN SHE WAS PASSED ONTO YOU

FOR THIS ROAD THAT WE TRAVEL WILL END MATE
HOW YOU RIDE IT IS ALL UP TO YOU
SO LOOK AFTER YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS MATE
AND LIVE LIKE YOU’RE JUST PASSING THROUGH

FOR THIS ROAD THAT WE TRAVEL WILL END MATE
HOW YOU RIDE IT IS ALL UP TO YOU
SO LOOK AFTER YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS MATE
AND LIVE LIKE YOU’RE JUST PASSING THROUGH

AND REMEMBER WE’RE JUST PASSING THROUGH
FOR WE ALL ARE JUST PASSING THROUGH
