about

Due to the lack of leadership shown in this Country (Australia) recently (summer 2019/20) and that friends and family of ours were evacuated on the NSW South Coast we, The Silverbeets, decided to write a song in dedication to all the heroic people who work for the RFS and their families. It is these generally unsung heroes who give up so much to save other people’s properties sometimes to the detriment of their own properties. The pride associated with seeing people like Paul Parker RFS firefighter from Nelligan who puts his life on the line during crisis like this stand up and tell the highest power in this Country exactly what so many others of us want to say is beyond anything that can truly be put into words. So, this song is for him, it is for all like him.

lyrics

It’s getting pretty hot round here
It must be just this time of year
The pressures of work well they're making it clear
I’ve gotta be getting out of here

Think it’s time for a Holiday

I’ve got to get away
Gotta take my holiday
Jetset off to Hawaii
Don’t think anyone will mind

Look I don't understand what’s the problem
C'mon It’s not like we’ve hit rock bottom now is it
Sure With PR there’s nothing to see here
Hey It’s just the same as every other year

Nothing Unprecedented

I Know I’ll go and shake everybody’s hand Yep!
Every boy girl woman and man, yep every single bloody one of them
That'll fix all their little problems
MATE Just watch the Test that'll get you out of your doldrums

Hope the smoke don’t come back again

I’ve got to get away
Gotta take my holiday
Jetset off to Hawaii
Don’t think anyone will mind

Gotta take my holiday
I’ve got to get away
Don’t think anyone will mind
It’s just the perfect time

I’ve got to get away
Gotta take my holiday
Jetset off to Hawaii - You left everyone behind
Don’t think anyone will mind

You Think Anyone will mind? You left everyone behind
You Think Anyone will mind? You left everyone behind
You Think Anyone will mind?
