Sailing with the Wangi Queen,

On Lake Macquarie fresh and green,

Make new friends relax a while, join us here on holidays,

As we sail the water ways, on a ferry boat ride on board the Wangi Queen

Wangi Queen, Wangi Queen on a ferry boat ride on board the Wangi Queen.

Lake Macquarie shows the way, sail board riders skim the waves,

Picnic bays and the trees are free for all.

Fishing ,swimming games to play

Jet-boats ski-iers Fly the spray round the ferry boat riders on the Wangi Queen,

Wangi Queen, Wangi Queen round the ferry boat riders on the Wangi Queen.

Christmas Eve's a big affair lot's of fun for all to share,

Children come to see the Wangi Queen,

Flashing lights all around the bays, people wave and say g'day

To the ferry boat riders on the Wangi Queen

Wangi Queen, Wangi Queen to the ferry boat riders on the Wangi Queen

Sunset colours paint the clouds yachts sail by tall and proud,

People come from near and far away,

If Lake Macquarie has her way well come back again one day

For a ferry boat ride on board the Wangi Queen

Wangi Queen, Wangi Queen for a ferry boat ride on board the Wangi Queen
