“Beds Are Burning” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Midnight Oil.
Tune: Midnight Oil.


Out where the river broke,
The bloodwood and the desert oak,
Holden wrecks and boiling diesels
Steam in 45 degrees.

The time has come
To say fair’s fair,
To pay the rent,
To pay our share.

The time has come.
A fact’s a fact.
It belong’s to them.
Let’s give it back!

How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?
How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?

The time has come
To say fair’s fair,
To pay the rent now,
To pay our share.

Four-wheels scare the cockatoos
From Kintore East to Yuendemu.
The western desert lives and breathes
In 45 degrees.

The time has come
To say fair’s fair,
To pay the rent,
To pay our share.

The time has come.
A fact’s a fact.
It belongs to them.
Let’s give it back!

How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?
How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?

The time has come
To say fair’s fair,
To pay the rent now,
To pay our share.

The time has come.
A fact’s a fact.
It belongs to them.
We’re gonna give it back.

How can we dance when our earth is turning?
How do we sleep while our beds are burning?
