Water Cannon


In 2007 the government of New South Wales bought a water cannon. That it had never been used by 2019 shows that the purchase was unnecessary. The money could have bought two fully equipped emergency ambulances. The water cannon is a toy of the police state. The tune is Rosin the Bow.
It’s away with your batons and tasers
Away with your capsican spray
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!
We’ve got water cannon to-day-a-ay
We’ve got water cannon today
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!

They used them on leftists in Chile
And also on blacks in Jo’Burg
All modern police states have some
To lack one would be quite absurd
The Minister said ‘twas money well spent
When handing over the key
For terrorists are increasing
And democracy doesn’t come free

It’s away with your batons and tasers
Away with your capsican spray
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!
We’ve got water cannon to-day-a-ay
We’ve got water cannon today
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!

When riots are spoiling your street
You look to the thin blue line
We’ll hose ‘em all right off their feet
And do it in double quick time
Tsunamis do great damage of course
Floods sweep whole towns away
But water fired with great force
Keeps revolutions at bay

It’s away with your batons and tasers
Away with your capsican spray
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!
We’ve got water cannon to-day-a-ay
We’ve got water cannon today
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!

The government has some boots to lick
And demos they cannot bear
The rich don’t need private armies
For the state apparatus is theirs
If the lovely leaders of APEC
Look for a safe place to meet
Our new toy can quickly remove
Trouble and noise from the street

It’s away with your batons and tasers
Away with your capsican spray
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!
We’ve got water cannon to-day-a-ay
We’ve got water cannon today
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!

When the bush is burning in summer
Planes drop water from on high
When protestors begin their chanting
We’ll soon extinguish their fire
So sleep safe and soundly tonight
And dream your plutocrat dreams
The thin blue line is protecting you
And washing the gutters so clean!

It’s away with your batons and tasers
Away with your capsican spray
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!
We’ve got water cannon to-day-a-ay
We’ve got water cannon today
Retire your dogs and your horses
We’ve got water cannon today!
