lyrics

Eighty Reasons.

Been labouring six years.
Got a trade and a few ideas.
Wanted kids and a house to build but where there's smoke there was fire and fuel.
The changes, the reforms.
The families not forewarned.
One day he woke up ill and there was no pay and less rights still so
No.

No to anti-union laws,
We didn't work then march and meet to have it ripped away.

Contracts and low awards,
It's slave labour and no step forward.
Their plan's full of holes and flaws, or worse still divisive causes.
Just because we're organised,
They try to slander us with lies,
They call us bullies, thugs and pests but when the unions go it'll be blood and riots next.
No.

Just over 200 years of campaigns, blood, sweat and fear.
And three terms from hypocrites that gave false promises then backflipped.
They never struggled, never bled, they just used workers instead.
We've got to fight them at the polls, this last stand will be where the bell tolls.
No.

No to anti-union laws,
We didn't work then march and meet to have it ripped away.
