Fitzy & Wippa's 'Blacktown' Parody
When Fitzy & Wippa heard that the council of Blacktown wanted to change the town's name they were devastated.
To celebrate their love for Blacktown and the suburb's iconic name they wrote a parody song about the area to the tune of Macklemore's "Downtown".
Check it out.
Politicians say that Blacktowns lost their patience
Have a referendum and the locals can name it
And we’re like “Honestly we don't need a name adoption
And they say, hows this for a brighter option?
