The Immaculate Crows

The Immaculate Crows are a Brisbane-based Australian Alternative band formed originally by Bruce Neilsen and Chris Allen in 1982. Their second singer was David Page who would have been one of the first (if not the first) indigenous frontmen/vocalists in an Australian band. David had been a teenage pop-star. He was the first Australian to be signed to a Motown label. He sadly passed away in 2016. The band broke up in 1984 and Bruce formed Insurrection and The Popes before playing with The Immaculate Crows again briefly in 1984. They did songs that covered a broad spectrum of genres including punk, new wave, psychedelic, progressive rock and pop. Bruce and former member Mark Hocknell reunited in 2020 and several new songs have been released since. The Immaculate Crows is now a partnership where Bruce writes the lyrics, music and arrangements and Mark produces and plays on the initial tracks. Bruce also plays on the initial tracks. Carolyn Neilsen records vocals and extra tracks as well as doing the final mix which is sent to Kagen Step for mastering. Vocalists are sourced locally.

DOLLY

(MUSIC AND LYRICS BY BRUCE NEILSEN)

What’s the matter 
With people today
To drive a young girl
To end her life that way

I don’t care what the bullies say
There’s no justification
For acting 
That way

She was young, she was pretty
Kept her torment to herself
Everything to live for
If she believed in herself

Now for every good person
Who takes their own life
There’s plenty of bullies who
Beat their wives

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you
Take your life

Cowards that creep
In the night
Looking for an
Easy fight

Where they target their victims
Oh so well
Making their lives
A living hell

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you
Take your life

They pick on those
Who can’t fight back
Keyboard warriors 
Whose hearts are black

They destroy reputations
They destroy lives
They get away
With endless lies

I’d like to put 
Their kind away
On an island
Then blow it away

Bullies are human
That’s what you say
But I don’t really
See it that way

They make you cry
They make you weep
Destroy your soul
And kill your sleep

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

What’s the matter with people
Today
The bullies that put
Dolly away

Never left her alone
To be what she was
They hated her
Just because

She was quite nice
And pretty kind
The kind of person
You’d never leave behind

If you knew the pain
She was in
To not protect her 
Would have been a sin

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you 
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Why did they make you
Take your life

Dolly oh Dolly
Dolly oh Dolly
Dolly oh Dolly
Dolly oh Dolly
