"Lads of the BLF" (karaoke)

"Lads of the BLF" (sheet music)


Now times have changed, you can't deny;

They've got our backs up against the wall;

Workers' pow'r must organize

Or there'll be no workers' pow'r at all;

Corporations rule this land;

Democracy's a sham, sir;

They rob us blind at every turn;

And they don't give a damn, sir.

 

Here's to the boys in the building trade

Under the flag of the old Stockade!

Down with the right and up with the left!

And here's to the lads of the BLF!

 

They bore the brunt of the bosses' wrath

To stand for the rights of the working class;

Their cause was bagged in papers that

I wouldn't use to wipe my arse;

Bob Hawke and his traitor crew

Conspired with Crabb and Cain, sir,

To push through anti-union laws

For corporation's gain, sir;

 

Here's to the boys in the building trade

Under the flag of the old Stockade!

Down with the right and up with the left!

And here's to the lads of the BLF!

 

The rich get richer by the day

(The cancer of this nation)

While workers' wages fall behind

The spiral of inflation;

Poverty and homelessness

Are not the only norm, sir;

Stand up now for workers' rights

And socialist reform, sir.

 

Here's to the boys in the building trade

Under the flag of the old Stockade!

Down with the right and up with the left!

And here's to the lads of the BLF!

 

Here's to the boys in the building trade

Under the flag of the old Stockade!

Down with the right and up with the left!

And here's to the lads of the BLF!
