We say we’re guarding our sovereignty by towing boats back out to sea
stopping asylum seekers trying to flee, flee from tyranny
we tow them to within 12 miles of shore
and clip their ears and increase their fears what’s more.
We’re going to scrap the carbon tax
and give existing social welfare the axe.
People don’t need money just because they’re poor
a job is what’s needed to settle the score.
We are not bringing worst choices back
but if you strike you’ll get the sack.
We’re smarter than judges, hold no grudges
a pay cut’s needed now you’re in the bosses’ clutches.
