Don't Sell Our Assets Mr Key!



I'm no Woody Guthrie or Bob Dylan, but there is a long tradition of adapting well known songs as a form of protest. Additions or improvements welcome as I want to use this for our Invercargill march this Saturday. I managed to get Clint Green to sing it for me, he's New Zealand's very own folk protest singer who is already famous for his National Standards song. Check out the video for my song, and thanks to my son for organizing the visuals.


Don't Sell Our Assets, Mr Key

This land is our land, this land is my land
From Cape Reinga to Stewart Island
From the Kauri forests to our sparkling rivers
This land was made for you and me.

We paid our taxes and put our money
Into damming rivers and building windfarms
We created assets that provided power
For our people and economy

Our government borrowed and cut the taxes
to the rich and prosperous and corporate leaders
Now we are marching and loudly chanting
Don't sell our assets, Mr Key!

This land is our land, this land is my land
From Cape Reinga to Stewart Island
From the Kauri Forests to our sparkling rivers
This land was made for you and me.



This land is our land, this land is my land

Don't sell our assets, Mr Key!
