lyrics

Hey dude, don’t make it bad
Take a sad suburb, and make it better
Remember to let it into your heart
We need your art to make it better

Hey dude, don’t be afraid
Move into this low-status neighbourhood
The minute you walk around looking hip
Then you begin to make it better

And every time we raise the rent, hey dude, relent
You carry investments on your shoulders
Enthusiastically organize events
And decorate retail strips with posters

Hey dudes, don’t let us down
We allowed you to rent our suburb
The minute you open up a cafe
You start to drive our house prices upwards

We let it out so you move in, hey dudes, begin
Exhibit your work in this old warehouse
Don’t forget to spread the vibe among your tribe
Then we can convert it to a sharehouse

Hey dude, don’t you delay
Get creative in this old neighbourhood
The minute the area’s looking hip
We’ll throw you out, and rent it to bankers

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha …
