Blackbird by Flora and Fraggle

Blackbird by Flora  (c) and Fraggle

(From Tape Two)

 and the blackbird sings a different song
because he hasn’t always been a blackbird
and the oil lines the pockets of the fast city slickers
who make deals with the government the experts and vicars
trying to cover up the cover-up
hoping to cover up the cover-up
cover up the sea with black crude oil
cover up the earth with black crude oil
cover up the sky with black crude oil
cover up the cover up
cover up the cover up
make a deal break a deal
cover up the oil spill
birds otters dolphins don’t pay well
sell a deal buy a deal
cover up the oil spill
cover up the oil spill
cover up the oil spill
and the blackbird sings a different song…
