The Black Spurs say Live Export Ain't Right!

I don't know about you guys, but I lurrrrve my Rock and Roll! It's no secret that I'm pretty fond of animals too so when I heard that The Black Spurs had written a song about banning live export, I was interested.

Nothing prepared me for how awesome the song is though! Check it out!

The footage that Animals Australia filmed in Indonesia of the cruel live animal export trade was enough to outrage guitarist GG Twang to pen the powerful lyrics. But then, he went one better, and donated the song to the Ban live Export campaign!

Yep, all the proceeds from this little pearler go to Animals Australia and for $1.69 on iTunes it's cheaper than a soy latte!

If you're in Sydney, you can see The Black Spurs perform "It Ain't Right" at the Sydney Ban Live Export National Rally this Sunday 14th August.

For everyone else, I reckon we should learn the words and sing them loud and clear at the rallies in all the other major cities this weekend.

Get your rock on guys, and let's rally together to Ban Live Export!

It Ain't Right - The Black Spurs

Herd them into ships, to sail the open seas
The lucky don't survive, the stress and disease
To feeding lots far and wide, on foreign sovereign ground
To take their final rest before the butcher's killing ground

Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, animal rights
Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, it ain't right!

Slaughter box is open, leg ropes tied and bound
A mighty slap as the Brahman's back, hits the concrete ground
One by one they follow, trembling in their stride
To face the blade of the butcher's trade, conscious and alive

Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, animal rights
Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, it ain't right!

The politicians argue, the experts disagree
Live export is no answer, let's end the suffering
Let's start to think it over, find a better way
Cause right is right and wrong is wrong stand up and voice a change

Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, animal rights
Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, it ain't right!

I can't say for you, but it's plain to me
It ain't right to mistreat life cause pain and misery
We need to feed the world, every family
But not forget to show respect for all that lives and breathes

Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, animal rights
Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, it ain't right!
Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, animal rights
Live ban, live ban, live ban, live, it ain't right!
