A Song by Mike Williss©2009 Mike Williss
Lyrics written by Mike Williss, performed by Peter Hicks and engineered by Geoff Francis in Southern Tasmania. see

Come gather round and listen
To the thunder rolling in,
'Cos the rich are trying to break us
And we're not gonna let them win.

Well they tried it on the wharfies
With scabs and thugs and lost,
So how to break the building sites
Where the workers won't be bossed?

"We own the law, we own the courts
And that's the key to their defeat:
We'll give the workers six months jail
For every time they meet!"

The workers met on safety
And Ark Tribe led the way,
So Gillard's thugs decided
That he would have to pay.

"If your name it is Ark Tribe
Come to our interrogation –
You'll have to dob your mates in:
That's the way we run this nation!"

"Oh my name it is Ark Tribe
And I ain't gonna talk to you.
My freedom flies with the Southern Cross
And there's nothing you can do."

"If there's anything that I've done wrong
I'll take your jail, that's fine!
But killing fifty men a year
Is the bosses' crime, not mine!"

"As for your Liberal and your Labor,
To me they look the same
With Howard's rotten laws served up
In Julia Gillard's name."

"Well, I'd a-ridden with Ned Kelly
I'd a fought with bold Ben Hall,
'Cos it was wild colonial boys like these
Who taught us to stand tall."

Well, if Ark Tribe's put in prison
By their "tough cop on the beat",
The wild colonial boys and girls
Must get out in the street.

And we must ride like Edward Kelly,
We must fight like bold Ben Hall,
'Cos it was wild colonial boys like these
Who taught us to stand tall!
