They Did It Down In Freo

They Did It Down In Freo

They did it down in “Freo”,
They polished up the town,
Upped the rates on business
And closed a whole lot down.
Set the pace at a frantic rate
And milled the traffic round.

They could do what they did in “Freo”
If no-one makes a sound:
Up the rates on vignerons
And make the trucks go round.

They’ll not shift the fishing boats
And the trucks won’t go around.

Cease the incessant chatter
Of harvesters all night,
Stop the tractors’ diesel rattle
And flashing yellow lights,
Reduce the risk of spraying mist;
Simply bulldoze the vines.

They could do what they did in “Freo”
If no-one makes a sound.
