lyrics

Black South Easter (Warrick Sony)

Little children playing in the street
Make believe criminals shooting at police
You can feel the morning heat
as it beats down on childhood dreams
Broken sleep
Corrugated iron won’t protect them from the storm
Won’t protect them from extended families
When the Black Southeaster blows everyone who lives here knows
It’s going to take the town by storm

Everything we need will be free
Houses food electricity
A land of happiness and sun
Who cares where the money's coming from
Corrugated iron won’t protect you from the storm
Won’t protect you from extended families
When the Black Southeaster blows everyone who lives here knows
It’s going to take the town by storm

She was an little late for work
Waited half an hour for the train to come
She thinks of families and friends
Left behind to the armies of the north
Corrugated iron won’t protect them from the storm
Won’t protect them from extended families
When the Black Southeaster blows everyone who lives here knows
It’s going to take the town by storm
