These Gates Are Made for Lockin’

tune “These Boots are Made for Walkin'” (Nancy Sinatra)
written by Lee Hazelwood, 1966
parodied by Jenny Fitzgibbon, 2010

1. You keep saying you’ve got energy for me
Something you call safe, but confess,
Gas’ been leakin’ where it shouldn’t be leakin’,
And your fracking poison I don’t call progress.

These gates are made for lockin’,
And that’s just what they’ll do
All over this State these gates
Are gonna lock in front of you.

2. You keep lying, when you oughta be truthin’,
and you keep losin’ when you oughta not bet,
You been gamblin’ with our Great Artesian,
Now what’s right is right, but you ain’t been right yet.

These gates are made for lockin’,
And that’s just what they’ll do
All over this State these gates
Are gonna lock in front of you.

3. You keep frackin’ where you shouldn’t be frackin’,
You keep thinkin’ that you ́ll never get burnt.
Ha! Well I saw a kitchen tap lit up with matches, yeah
And you corporations, now’s your time to learn.

These gates are made for lockin’,
And that’s just what they’ll do
All over this State these gates
Are gonna lock in front of you.

To end – Are you ready gates? Start lockin’!
