When boxes come, to the archives door

We want to list them, list them

So they’re requested more.

‘Cos we’re usin’ series to keep up to date

With all the right files in all the right places

 

We’re reading Schellenberg, recitin’ Jenkinson

We’re listing series, series, Aussie style

Using Muller, Feith and Fruin to the works of Peter Scott

 

See how archivists like to keep all your files together

So that users can know who did what and why forever

Describing series and items and organisations

Means you can now discover

truth about your family relations

Context relationships is where it’s at

We’re tracking where its from

Through the records continuum
