About this lyric:

"With this song we protest!" On 12th May 2015 well-known Hout Bay citizens from Hangberg and the valley joint forces in protest and recorded and filmed a song written by SA pop star Ike Moriz.

Local musicians Barry van Zyl (Johnny Clegg's drummer), Roger Bashew(bass legend, RGB Music), guitar virtuoso Guy Collins (Hot Water), Hangberg rapper Spike Parker (Peter Parker Michaels), videographer & editor Wayne Johnstone (Myth Media), sound engineer Andrew Rawbone-Viljoen & his brother Jeremy (Digital Forest) and singer, producer, actor and writer Ike Moriz united in protest of the noxious, putrid and potentially harmful emissions by the local Oceana / Lucky Star fish processing factory (fish meal & fish oil for export to China & USA etc - used as fertiliser, pet food etc) at Digital Forest Studios in Constantia. The song was released on iTunes to raise funds for the Hout Bay Residents and Ratepayers Association.

At first living with you was so romantic, 
Sunsets, harbour lights and fishing boats. 
We would stroll the beach, it was gigantic, 
Magic views, whales, dolphins and Mount Rhodes.

LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
KNOCK ON WOOD AND FIND A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
LEAVE OUR ‚HOOD’ CAUSE THIS ROMANCE IS OVER

You do your smelly business in the night 
When the rest of us is all sleeping tight
You wake our children in the early morning 
With headaches, nausea, red eyes: sleep deprived!

LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
OH, KNOCK ON WOOD AND THEN FIND A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
OH, LEAVE OUR ‚HOOD’ CAUSE THIS ROMANCE IS OVER

Your had your chance this town’s given you notice. 
Yet you persist that there’s nothing wrong. 
Tried to pay us off, confuse us, divert the focus: 
Your work here is done!

Rap section (by Spike Parker):
You can smell the smell that makes us sick
The fumes out of the roof and the smoke so thick
They are making the fishmeal to feed the pigs
They brainwash our minds and they're playing their tricks (Yeah!)
The fumes, the gas, harm like drugs the flesh...
For generations of mess. With this song we protest!
We got the smoke on our chest, oh, yah,
With this song we protest! Come on!
We got the smoke on our chest, oh!
With this song we protest! 
With this song we protest! 

LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
OH, KNOCK ON WOOD AND THEN FIND A FOUR LEAF CLOVER
OH, LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
OH, LEAVE OUR ‚HOOD’ CAUSE THIS ROMANCE IS OVER
OH, LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
OH, LEAVE OUR ‚HOOD’ CAUSE THIS ROMANCE IS OVER
LUCKY STAR AIN’T WHAT YOU ARE
YOUR BREATH SMELLS LIKE A FISH CIGAR
LEAVE OUR ‚HOOD’ CAUSE THIS ROMANCE IS OVER
IT IS OVER
