Which Side Will You Take Mate?

A re-write of the old Union song by Florence Patton Reece: Which Side Are You On? Parroted in the manner of Natalie Merchants rendition of Florence Patton Reece’s: Which Side Are You On? 🙂

Now! It has been Australianised to immortalise a time of great despair within the Australian community under an Abbott Government, under the Torries 2013-16. (Lyrics are below)

Which Side will you take mate?
by JMO

Come all you good workers good news to you I tell,
of how the good old Unions have come in here to dwell.

Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take,
Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take.

Australia was a lucky country, with no torries in the chair,
but now we have an Abbott gov, destroying Australia fair

Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take,
Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take.

They say in Australia, the Unions are unfair,
with royal commissions by the torries stripping workers bear

Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take,
Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take.

The torries gave Australia, away to corporations,
they stripped all workers penalties and destroyed a faithful nation

Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take,
Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take.

Come all you good workers, we need to take it back,
Australia can be ours again when we vote out all the pratts

Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take,
Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take.

Don’t scab for the bosses, don’t take the Torries crap,
save your jobs and join the unions, and take your futures back

Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take,
Which side will you take mate, Which side will you take.
