Well, listen to my story ‘bout a woman that I know
Vowed to give up ironing and wearing panty hose
She said I’m gonna take a stand just you wait and see
So she googled Raging Grannies right here in Calgary
fossil fuels! fossil fogies! Bad for ducks!
Well the next thing you know she’s a-carrying a sign
Givin’ Stephen and the boys a piece of her own mind
She was wearing an outrageous hat the day that she was born
With a pamphlet in her parasol, she’s singin’ up a storm
Storm of protest; oh shy violet; blow your horn!
So if doilies leave you cold and you want to take a stand
Against the greedy forces that are ruining this land
Get a bee in your bonnet and a yen for the stage
Then come on girl, join us now because it’s time to rage!
Raging grannies! old age! not for sissies!
Well now it’s time to move along we’ve got some work to do
But come on down and talk to us we need someone like you
No perfect pitch is necessary nor a pretty face
All you need is lots of heart and in the proper place
Place for you, Raging Granny, your name here!
