Adani, There’s no need to dig coal
Hey Adani, and leave a poisonous hole
Hey Adani, with farmers paying the toll
We must leave it in the ground and
Adani, renewable we will go
Hey Adani, it will cost us less dough
Coal can stay there, and I’m sure we will find
Climate change re-duced just in time       So-lar and the wind!

Chorus
With sun to spare we say – Why Dig Up Coal    x2
With renewable pow’r from the wind and the sun
Enough – for everyone
With sun to spare we say – Why Dig Up Coal    x2
You can invest in what’s real, get a much better deal
How fabulous will you feel?

Adani, are you ready to see
Hey Adani, Queenslanders want you to be
Hey Adani, building green energy
And you got to know this one thing
Adani, If you go solar today
Hey Adani, we won’t make you go away
And we’ll thank you, because Why Dig Up Coal
When re-new-a-ble is the goal                   So-lar and the wind!

Chorus ….

Adani – there’s a fact you should know
Hey Adani, tribal elders say “no”
Hey Adani, so with Carmichael coal
We must leave it in the ground and
Adani, it’s Aboriginal land
Hey Adani, keep your cash in your hand
Hey Adani, don’t let your assets get stran-
-ded when all the world goes solar               So-lar and the wind!
Chorus ….

Leave It In The Ground, Adani (Mother Brown)

LEAVE IT IN THE GROUND – by Dermot Dorgan

Tune HERE:

Leave it in the ground, leave it in the ground,
We don’t want Adani’s coal, we say, we say, we say no
Leave it in the ground, leave it in the ground,
It’s THE solution! No Pollution!
Leave it in the ground.

Adani is a mining man and coal is what he seeks.
He wants to dig from our backyard
One, million tonnes a week.
But if that coal gets burnt, we’ll pay a shocking price,
So if you’re listening, mining man,
here’s some good advice:

Leave it in the ground, leave it in the ground,
We don’t want Adani’s coal, we say, we say, we say no
Leave it in the ground, leave it in the ground,
It’s THE solution! No Pollution!
Leave it in the ground.

Now if we burn a lot of coal, we’ll cause a lot of grief.
The heat will melt the polar ice – and, kill, the Barrier Reef.
And those providing funds,
both governments and banks
Have got to hear this loud and clear:
the people say NO THANKS!!

Leave it ….
