    Lyrics

    Roll on (8 times)

    We'll roll on with our heads held high
    Our conscience in the gutter
    Our dreams up in the sky
    We'll roll on with our heads held high
    Our conscience in the gutter
    Our dreams up in the sky

    The shipyards are deserted on the docks of Melbourne town
    The wharfies standing strong
    They gathered round to see what the union had to say
    There's too much work and not enough pay
    Say

    We'll roll on with our heads held high
    Our conscience in the gutter
    Our dreams up in the sky
    We'll roll on with our heads held high
    Our conscience in the gutter
    Our dreams up in the sky

    We'll protest in peace, keep the whole thing quiet
    The last thing needed is a wage-fuelled riot
    Cos they don't really care
    They're always standing there
    Running from the outside
    From the outside
    Running from the outside world

    Do you really care?
    Why are you standing there
    Filming for the outside world?
    Do you really care?
    Why are you standing there
    filming for the outside world?

    Five weeks had passed when the union made it clear
    Spirits slowly faded and the end was getting near
    You see you're all expendable and when all is said and done
    You'll go back to work tomorrow
    Or meet your new replacement, son!

    Roll on (3 times)

    We'll roll on with our heads held high
    Our conscience in the gutter
    Our dreams up in the sky
    We'll roll on with our heads held high
    Our conscience in the gutter
    Our dreams up in the sky

    Roll on (13 times)
