We are the suffragettes, Think you know some fierce girls? You ain't heard nothing yet.
A lass called Milli Fawcett founder of our cause, Started the battle for our rights Argued the government should change the laws, Here is how she stated applied
How come girls can't vote for rules that we have to obey? When we work and pay taxes too! Parliament's reaction was 'Oh do go away! ' How dare they diss the suffrage crew
Suffragettes sing, we're gonna do this thing Peaceful protest started in 1903 Got no reaction, needed drastic action Got a new leader Emmeline Pankhurst That's me
Burst into parliament shouting votes for women, Actions though were shocking anf new Chained ourselves to palace gates Tension was brimming on the WSPU Burned down churches, smashed up shops Attacked MPs, the result we were thrown in gaol This made us more determined as you'll come to see Think we'd give up fighting? hey fail!
Suffragettes sing together we can win In prison we protested and went on hunger strike Men still said no but we just said Yo! You won't stop us now! Miss Davison please take the mic
We became more extreme Derby day June 13 In front of king and queen Committed sacrifice supreme Crept unseen between the team And crowds watching the race And threw myself under a horse To try and make our case Became a famous martyr, how did men react? We can't give women votes if they're so stupid they'll do that
Seemed our cause was lost When world war came along Our suffragette reaction Was to wave our protest good bye Farewell, so long, took patriotic action Put down our banner sayinggive us votes Instead supported the men's fight Worked to help them win the war so guess what they said Okay ladies... you were right!
Suffragettes sing, we've done it ding-ding At last those men could see they should treat us the same So all take note now that women can vote And it's thanks to those who fought in the Suffragette name!
