Some months ago we were asked to write a song for the plight of the Kangaroo. Teresa, an animal advocate in Australia, tracked us down in desperation after hearing our interview with Sue Marchant at BBC Radio Cambridge. Teresa wrote to tell us of the horrific slaughter of millions of Kangaroo each and every year. We could not ignore Teresa's letter and her plea to end the killing of the Kangaroo was heartfelt and compelled us to do something to help these beautiful creatures.

We hope you will also sign the petition and be a voice for the defenceless who are depending upon us to help them survive.

Will the amazing Kangaroo, the icon and emblem of Australia, become another victim of mankind's wish to kill everything that lives wild and free?

Please follow the trail in Teresa's information links, below, to see how you can speak up to save the Kangaroo in Australia.

Thank you.

Best wishes

'Killing Your Own'


Killing your own
You're only killing your own
How can you kill what you live with?
You're only killing your own

Little babies in the pouch
And they don't know nothing about it, and
Men come along with guns and they shout all around about it
But men are fools and they break all the rules
And end up lost and alone because they're killing their own

People try to save them and one by one they try to heal them, and
Patch up the broken with words unspoken
But millions die with a bullet in the eye
How can you live while your old friends die?

Killing your own
You're only killing your own
How can you kill what you live with?
You're only killing your own

Little Kangaroo, they don't care about you
And while you try to run they just follow with a gun
One day will you be gone? Just a memory, a song
Will they regret the show and know they killed all that they owned

Because they're killing their own
They're only killing their own
How can you kill what you live with?
You're only killing your own
Killing your own
You're only killing your own
How can you kill what you live with?
You're only killing, killing, killing your own
You're only killing your own...
