Willie Mcrae Lyrics by Oi Polloi
Willie Mcrae by Oi Polloi
Willie fought to end Westminster rule
Rule by scum who thought it would be best
To use the Highlands for atomic bomb test
Plans to use Scotland as a nuclear dump site
Willie said, "Resist! Stand up and fight!"
He tried to save our children from a toxic fate
So Willie was murdered by the nuclear state
Secret police shot Willie in the head
Another Hilda Murrell, another activist dead
For anti-nuclear protest in this "land of the free"
For saying, "Alba out of G.B.!"
No right to free speech, no right to protest
Remember Karen Silkwood and Chico Mendes
And countless others killed for what they had to say
We owe it to them to keep on fighting today
