Lyrics

ChoA: Frack-frack-fracking G-D7

What the frack is fracking? C7-G

Fracking’s using water C7-G

To whack oil from our ground. A7-D7

ChoB: Frack-frack-fracking G-D7

Your concern for us is lacking! C7-G

So we’re packing you off, C7-G

To save the water in our town. A7-D7-G, D7

 

We love the water in our city

But when you frack, it’s not so pretty

In fact, I feel like “gacking”

When I try to drink it down

Cause your fracking blows the water

Into places that we oughter

Keep it outta, ‘cause it comes out

Kinda oily, green and brown!

(ChorusA&B)

 

Well, you haven’t got my backing

So let’s cut all the yacking

You’re racking up the profits

From the oil you take up!

And it seems that you’re uncertain

‘Bout the damage to our dirt,

An we refuse to take the risks,

Because our town is waking up!

 

So go back t’where ya came from! Em

We don’t want you here G

Your fracking makes our water burn Em

So let us make it clear! A7-D7

(Chorus B)/ (Instrumental Chorus B)

 

Would you frack your own home water?

Would your family be distraught,... or

Would you only do it far away

From where your family lives?

No one cares about the oil

If it ruins all our soil

If it makes the water putrid

Would you do it to your kids?

 

And we’ve heard about the earthquakes

That happen when you frack

Y’say you never make mistakes,

But we don’t believe you Jack!

 

Chorus B - So we’re packing you off, C-G

T’save the water in our town! D, D7, G-Cm-G
