“Phantom of the Milkhouse” — Kids for Raw Milk perform at the Village Market

Yesterday morning, about twelve young musicans ranging in age from about seven to seventeen performed live at a benefit concert held at the Village Market in Thornhill. Here are some photos of the performers in action, along with the words to one of the songs, adapted by event coordinator Shirley Ann Wood.

Sylvia and Lyndon perform a piece from the adaptation Phantom of the Milkhouse.

This is another song which Shirley Ann adapted for the occasion:

Hey Judge  (to the tune of Hey Jude – the Beatles)

Hey Judge – don’t make it bad,
Take a sad song, and make it better.
Remember to let it into y our heart
Then you can start to make it better.

Hey Judge – dont be afraid,
You were asked to consider fairly,
The rights of folks drinkin’ raw milk
Then you can begin to make it better

Refrain:  And any time you feel the pain
            Hey Judge refrain…
            From making a constitutional error
            For you know that it’s a fool who plays it cool
            By making this world a little colder

Hey Judge – don’t make it bad,
Take a sad song, and make it better.
Remember our constitutional rights,
Then we can start to make farms better.

Hey Judge – don’t make it bad,
You have heard the raw milk cause
Remember to honour everyone’s rights
Then we can start to make life better.

Refrain.
