4. You won’t be fracking long!

Tune: ‘The Laughing Policeman’

Words: Marie Walsh/Liverpool Socialist Singers

CHORUS

You won’t be fracking long!

You won’t be fracking long!

Wherever fracking’s threatened 

We’ll sing our fracking song!

And if you fracking bankers

Can’t see there’s something wrong

You think you’re fracking clever,                                                                              But you won’t be fracking long!Paragraph

If you’re in the fracking business

You really ought to know

That all your fracking progress

Will be painfully slow.

We’ll block your fracking test sites

And your fracking engineers

And we’ll bring your fracking business down

Around your fracking ears!

CHORUS

They’ve had their fracking tax-break 

From Osborne in Whitehall

Which isn’t so surprising 

When you understand it all

The oil and gas investors

Pay for many a Tory toff

Yes they’re ‘all in this together’

Just like porkers at the trough!

CHORUS

So if you have some money 

That you’re wanting to invest

Don’t put it into fracking

That leaves the world a mess.

There’s sun and wind and water

That can power the human race

And every green investor makes 

The world a safer place!
