Boycott song

Sur l’air de Bye Bye Love des Everly Brothers, les paroles sont d’Elaine Ryan, Marie Walsh, Cor Cochion

To help the people of Palestine,
We won’t buy grapefruit or Israeli wine
And if you wond’ring what you can do,
Please join the boycott and help them too

Refrain :
(Basses : So we say) Don’t buy dates,
(Basses : Oh don’t buy) don’t buy Jaffa fruit,
Don’t buy Israeli wine there’s a boycott going on
(Basses : So we say) Don’t buy dates,
(Basses : Oh don’t buy) don’t buy Jaffa fruit,
Don’t buy Israeli wine
There’s a boycott going on
There’s a boycott going on

Their land’s been taken and occupied
Their houses bulldozed and farms destroyed
The Western powers send arms with glee
While Israel acts with impunity

Refrain

Check sweet potatoes, avocados too,
If they’re from Israel, you know what to do
Just read the bar codes – those little lines,
Things made in Israel start 7 2 9

Refrain

Tell all your neighbours, please don’t be shy
Read all the labels before you buy
You have the power each time you shop
Israel’s apartheid has got to stop

Refrain

So help the people of Palestine
We don’t buy grapefruit or Israeli wine
And if you’re wond’ring what you can do :
Please join the boycott and help them too
Please join the boycott and help them too !
