Asbestos lyrics to three Christmas songs by Rory O’Neil, Hazards Campaign

The International Ban Asbestos Secretariat (IBAS) has established the Asian Solidarity Delegation Mission to Canada page which posts mission details and extensive background information.   

Cancer cause is coming to town – To the tune of ‘Santa is coming to town’

Canada the red faced liar – To the tune – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Jingle Tills – To the tune ‘Jingle Bells’


 

Cancer cause is coming to town – To the tune of ‘Santa is coming to town’

You better watch out

You better beware

Canada kills and it doesn’t care

Asbestos exports

Coming to town

Chrysotile kills

By any name

Tumours abound

White fibres to blame

Cancer killer

Coming to town

You tell us to work safely

You say you give advice

But when it reaches Asia

The…. out.. come’s… not…. so…. nice

 
You better watch out

You better beware

A day of reckoning

We now declare

Will come with a ban everywhere

You really defeat reason

The body count is high

Asbestos cancers spreading

It’s the industry should die

You better watch out

You better beware

Your trade in death

We now declare

Will end with a ban everywhere

Canada the red faced liar – To the tune – Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

Can.a.da the red faced liar

Sells asbestos here and there

It doesn’t care who dies of

Tumours spreading everywhere

 [verse]

Your asbestos exports kill us

Thousands dying every day

Meso.lots.of.cancers, scarring

Asbestos kills so many ways

[chorus]

Then one chilly winter’s day

Protesters came to say

For a country civilised

You act an awful way
 

[and again with more positive opening verse]

 
[verse]

Can.a.da the red faced liar

Time to stop your cancerous trade

We’ll.no.longer breathe asbestos

Even branded Canuck-made

[verse]

Your asbestos exports kill us

Thousands dying every day

Meso.lots.of.cancers, scarring

Asbestos kills so many ways

[chorus]

Then one chilly winter’s day

Protesters came to say

For a country civilised

You act an awful way 

[verse]

Can.a.da the red faced liar

Says asbestos trade won’t kill

But while it makes a killing

Asia gets a deadly bill

Jingle Tills – To the tune ‘Jingle Bells’
Jingle Tills
 

You claim it is nice

Asbestos safe as snow

But your export’s killing us

And this is what we know… 
Doh!….

 
Your export kills

Your export kills

Asbestos kills worldwide

It’s no good to claim it’s safe

The death toll you can’t hide
 

Doh!….

 
Painful deaths

Painful deaths

Families pay the price

But you bank the profits

It’s industrial genocide
