WHY? ~

We created this track & music video together to raise awareness on the needless, unscientific, cruel & unwarranted slaughter of one of the British Isles' most beloved and unique creatures. Backed by politics & fear, not science nor public opinion, this expensive & ineffective badger cull could well cause more problems than it cures....even our friend Sir David Attenborough says so!!

Listen in the track for what he says....

BADGER SWAGGER ~

LYRICS:

Verse 1:
We love the badgers and they matter to our nanners
Cameron where's your manners
why them cameras try scan us
Some are sitting in a palace champagne and scallops
Some are in the store house begging for a package
We can't even manage
and killing all the badgers aint gonna fix the damage
It is sinning and drastic
like killing for plastic
Most are living brassic
people back this
We can't have this evil madness
Will you tell your grand kids the story of the badgers
In 40 years time when they've all vanished
That you was to busy getting dizzy with a gadget
Sign the Petition get busy and back it
Listen to the mission see the vision and the tactic
This will make the difference cos I went and Rob Cass'd it
Abbey road studios artful badger smacked it
Yeah I wrote a banger cos with grammar I'm a captain

Chorus:
Some things are black and white
Come on we got to win this fight
Some thing are wrong not right
So people gotta hold on tight !
Some things are like dynamite
Got to make them see the light
Some things are black and white
Come on fight the fight

Verse 2:
Listen to my verse and words In the tune
It's all going down on the first of June
People gather round give your point of view
In the manor underground be the voice for you crew
Yeah it matters now make a choice for the truth
You can't cull the badgers if you aint got the proof
NFU NFU deaths bad karma for your revenue
NFU NFU it's not a clever move
I think you better think it through
Be careful what you do
Cos the inner city's gritty
And we don't like the news
TB just reduced by 16%
Even if every single badger is dead
So what's the effect were not impressed
All the scientists said it doesn't make sense
Yet the killing goes ahead
How do you sleep in your bed
Get Off My Badger or I will get vex!

Chorus: (as above)

Spoken Word: (Sir David Attenborough)
So the government instituted a major inquiry to establish scientifically the facts. That involved culling 11,000 badgers and the results by the government adviser to that independent scientific group were that culling was not a viable policy option.

Chorus: x 2 (as above)
