Australian Band Spy v Spy in 1986
Song: Don't Tear It Down

Stonemasons
Are becoming things of the past
And the modern age
Is finally taking us over at last
Don't you wonder why?
They're tearing all the the old houses down
Can't they see?
That they're the best places around

Don't tear it down,
There's life in it yet
Don't tear it down

Don't you know that
History,
Is written there deep in the walls
But the march of progress
Just wants to pour concrete over us all
Craftsmanship,
The stone was cut by hand
Bulldozers
Are taking over the land

Don't tear it down, there's life in it yet
Don't tear it down, there's time for us yet,
Don't tear it down

An expressway,
Is planning to come thru our lounge
Eviction notes, in business coats
Never renovate, they just tear it down
A nation's heritage,
They want to bring down without a sound
Another new town
On top of the real town

Don't tear it down, there's life in it yet
Don't tear it down, there's time for us yet,
Don't tear it down, there's life in it yet
Don't tear it down
