   Mr Yudhoyono
Mr Yudhoyono, please may I speak with you
About that Aussie girl of ours whose heart has broke in two
Several hard long years now, inside your prison cell
Mr Yudhoyono, please show mercy for Schapelle.

Mr Yudhoyono, please show the world you care
While there must be judgment, it also should be fair
The world is watching waiting for what you could do so well
Mr Yudhoyono, please show mercy for Schapelle

Mr Yudhoyono, Aussie politicians too
I often wonder what would be, if this had walked past you
Would it be handled different, would it have all be thrown to hell
Would your sons or daughters still be in a prison cell

We were there to help, when Indonesia shook
When the Sari Club exploded, and changed the history books
And we all watched with sadness, when the big wave came
Mr Yudhoyono, we shared Indonesia’s pain

Mr Yudhoyono, please read that Holy Book
About compassion and forgiveness for a road wrongly took
Please pardon and forgive and send this young woman home
For who is there among us who can truly throw that stone

So would you let this Aussie girl once more walk barefoot in the sand
And watch the moonlight kiss the waters in her Aussie land
Let her have her babies, as defined by God
Let her bathe in motherhood like every woman should

Mr Yudhoyono please listen to my song
Even if she were guilty, the sentence far to long
All those years of twenty, far outweigh the crime
Mr Yudhoyono she has more than done her time

Mr Yudhoyono, please relieve her mental stress
Please reconsider and show some tenderness
The time has come the time is now for you to do your best
Show the world that you can put compassion to the test

So Mr Yudhoyono may you understand my view
About that Aussie girl of ours whose heart has broke in two
May God love and protect you, and your family as well
Mr Yudhoyono, please show mercy for Schapelle

Mr Yudhoyono, please, send a 'Pardon' for Schapelle

Mr Yudhoyono, thank you for this chat with you
About that Aussie girl of ours whose heart has broke in two
May God love and protect you, and your family as well
Mr Yudhoyono, please show mercy for Schapelle

Mr Yudhoyono, please show mercy for Schapelle
