Suffragette Demonstration-Saturday afternoon

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!
