about

A compilation of songs by various local artists supporting the campaign to save the Beeliar Wetlands in the south of Perth, Western Australia.

All proceeds go to www.rethinkthelink.com.au, a community-run campaign that believes there is a better solution to the proposed Perth Freight Link and the raft of economic, environmental and social impacts it will have on the WA community.

This is Volume 2, because so many great songs have been written about this historic community campaign, in the lead up to the Western Australian state election! See also Volume 1 on this Musicians for Beeliar Bandcamp page.

The entire album is available for $15, but generous donations above this are welcome! Individual songs can be purchased for $1 or more (though two of them are free), and the individual song pages have details about each artist.

The Naked Emperor
© Ginny Webb 2017

This is the tale of Mr B
Who’ll go down in history
As the biggest vandal we have ever known
He just won’t listen to the people
His decree is fully Papal
Giving orders to his minions from his throne!

CHORUS
So let him know
(let him know)
That your opposed
(we’re opposed)
The Emperor ain’t wearing any clothes!
(no clothes!)
Say no to Roe
( no to Roe!)
Just say no to Roe
(no to Roe!)
Cos The Emperor ain’t wearing any clothes!

Well B thinks he wears fine breeches
But I didn’t see no stitches
Just a road plan that’s a dinosaur at best
Can’t pull the wool over our eyes
With empty bluster, spin and lies
While beating out a Royal rhythm on his chest!



CHORUS
So let him know
(let him know)
He’ll be deposed
(be deposed)
The Emperor ain’t wearing any clothes!
(no clothes!)
Say no to Roe
(no to Roe)
Just say no to Roe
(no to Roe)
Cos The Emperor ain’t wearing any clothes!

We will stand here by the trees
Until his loyal servants leave
If Emperor B won’t listen
We’ll still sing and shout!
We don’t want this wetlands tollway
The Emperor’s “my way and the highway”
On election day, the Liberals are out!

CHORUS
So let him know
(let them know) they'll be deposed etc

This is the tale of Mr B
Who’ll go down in history
As the biggest loser we have ever known…
