Lyrics

© Project Freeman Music

(28/12/1997 Gregorian)

  

Believe in your own words

Learn from others you have heard

The signs are there to see

I'll blame you, you'll blame me

   

Making more from more or less

Turn it 'round to turn out best

Moving on is how to go

  

Believe in your own words

Learn from others you have heard

The signs are there to see

I'll blame you, you'll blame me

   

Making more from more or less

Turn it 'round to turn out best

Moving on is how to go

   

Until you take on the bit that is yours

And you share in what's better for all

And don't say no, no, no never, no way

In my back yard

   

Instrumental Verse

      

Making more from more or less

Turn it 'round to turn out best

Moving on is how to go

   

Until you take on the bit that is yours

And you share in what's better for all

And don't say no, no, no never, no way

In my back yard

   

   

The Story of 'My Back Yard'

not in my back yard

This one is based on that 'NIMBY' ('Not In My Back Yard') phrase, which for example relates to people not wanting traveling people staying near their homes. This is often through ignorance or a lack of understanding about what these people are really like, or more often because they are scared about what might happen to their neighbourhood because of fear-mongering created by the mainstream media.

But if they take some time to meet and talk to these guys (I am now one of them!) they'll usually find they're just decent normal people like themselves, who just choose to live in a different way. But sadly this rarely happens and instead we get the assumptions, prejudices and conflict that the system loves inflicted upon us

"...so don't say no, no, no never, no way, in my back yard..."
