We’re Powered By The Sky (New Verse added)

printable version here

tune: “Along the Road to Gundagai”
words and music by Jack O’Hagan, 1922,
parodied by Paul Spencer, 2014

There’s a way to defray,
Rising power costs today,
Now that we’re powered by the sky.
Where the wind keeps on blowing,
And solar farms keep glowing,
Beneath that sunny sky.

That my daddy and mother,
Will love I can tell,
And the pals of my childhood,
Installed one as well.

So no more will I moan,
When the power bills come home,
Now that we’re powered by the sky.

The next verse was added for a reef event.

It is best to Divest from coal and all the rest
Now that we’re powered by the sky.
Where the wind keeps on blowing,
And solar farms keep glowing,
beneath that sunny sky.
And my Daddy and mother spoke of it so well
That the pals of my childhood divested as well
Now our Super’s in trust
So the reef will not go bust
Now that we’re powered by the sky.
