Watch a fan submitted youtube mash up for the remix by M.I.A. -  M.I.A. remixed Down River .

Down River



Chorus:
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge   x2

Call me Wally this is where I’m at
I wear my NRL baseball cap
Paramatta’s my team if you know what I mean
To be the captain – that’s my dream

My name is Keith from Wilcannia streets
I walk on stilts to beat the beat
When I get home I shake a leg
This is my rhyme, that’s what I said

Chorus:
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge

p..p…p ..play some didge x 4

Well Colroy’s here and I have no fear
All you wild pigs better watch out for my spear
I’m with the gang and I’m almost ten
I want to be an actor like Jackie Chan

Lendal is my name and I like to do back flips
Listen to the words that come from my lips
Jump off the bridge and I play the didge
When I catch a fish I put it in the fridge

My name is Buddy, I can’t stand still
Wilcannia to Dubbo to Broken Hill
Been moving round from town to town
And this is how I get down

Chorus:
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge x2

…P……p…p.. Play some didge x3

(Beat Stops)
When it’s really hot we go the river and swim
When we go fishin’ we catchin’ a bream
When the river’s high we jump off the bridge
When we get home we play some didge

Barkandji Boys

 


Chorus:
Barkandji Boys are back, with another track
Show you what it’s all about, so scream and shout
Yeah Barkandji, Barkandji

Aemon:  I’ve got a mic in my hand
A shanghai around my neck
I shot Shrek and he went green
He got mean and I went screaming through the streets with Keith

Keith: You remember me, my name is Keith
Been stepping to the beat in Wilcannia streets
I head down the shop when I want something to eat
Then I go home and have a sleep

Ch x 2

Yeah Buddy’s back with the beat from Wilcannia streets
The weather’s been dry, can you feel the heat
Cooking up hip hop from the bush tucker beat
Quick feet and a heart-beat, this is how I walk this street

Turn up the Wilcannia boomerang
Colroy’s doing it again
Got the mic in my hand, beat in the other
Back with my brothers
Barkandji boys bringing the noise
Still hunting wild pigs, got the groovy dig

Ch x 2

Lendal is back with another track
Still doing back flips and jumping off the bridge
Listen to the words that come from my lips
Bandu is Barkandji lingo for fish

Wally is back with another rap
Making tracks to Dubbo and back
Playing footy with my team
Westside red and green
Check my video on your TV screen

Pick it Up



Chorus:
Pick it up with another track with Keithy and Barry
and the boys yeah we’re back
Collroy and the rap keep it on track Lendl and Wally
Barkandji Boys attack

This is Keith and I’m back with the girls on heat
They look at me and they think I’m sweet
In Wilcannia streets I eat roo meat
No matter who you are you can’t beat Keith
Check my style and I got a great smile
Nampi Nhhunghus they come from miles
14 years old and my songs gone gold
Won a Deadly, still remember when I’m old

Damn  - look at Barry’s colour
He’s another one of those Paakandji Brothers
Put him in the band ’cos I’m the man
Out the back of the Drop – in makin’ my plans
Barry William Leonard is the name
New to the group but not to the game
Yeh I’m deadly – you can say that again
Yeh I’m deadly and footie’s my game.

Triple J played our song
You all sung along
A coupla years later
Yes I am getting strong
From a boy to a man
With the mike in my hand
Listen to our song and you’ll understand
Wally represents the people of the land
It’s not about the money but you can pay me a grand
See me in the grandstand rockin’ with the band
When I walk down the street the girls say….damn!

Colroy & the boys
Still bringing tha noise
This is a game but we aint toys
For real, this is how I got started ’cause my
Crew is here tonight
Don’t wanna fight, just wanna rock
A party, Barkandjis, now how 2
Rock ya body
Cause we got it goin’ on
This is my land where I belong

I’m a King on the mic
Bring on the night
Shine like a light
I’m out of sight
On my bike
Who wanna ride with me
My first cousin Lawrence
And all Barkandji
From Broken Hill all the way to Sydney
Listen to this music
And dance with me
