Stone the Crows, Aussie Version
"Stone the Flamin crows" he cried, "The country's gone to hell,
the 'cobbers' are all 'cobras' now, a sorry tale to tell,
The Cuff'n'Collar boys have won, and sold the family farm,
the Orcs have overrun the Shire, and caused all kinds of harm.
Now its Porches for the city spivs, and no Fair Go for All,the battlers do it very tough, their backs against the wall.
There are two kinds of aussies now, comfort and survival
where everyone was once a mate, now everyman's a rival
Money doesn't talk, it screams, and drowns all other voices
the people are seduced by greed, and see no other choices.
Nothing now is sacred, there are no dreams they cherish
yet proverbs clearly warns 'without vision, the people perish'
Some love a sunburnt country, this dry and wide brown land
but the True-Blue culture's fading, if we don't take a stand.
Some say that only Owners have the right to speech that's free,
I say a Fair Go is FOR ALL, and that means you and me!
- A Fair Dinkum True-Blue
That could be something that the Occupy Wall Street people have as their anthem in the USA.
@Adullamite - Stone the crows. Wot. It's like God blind me or something.@Expat Mum - And the same lament the tea party sings. How strange!
