Women and Politics Medley

#1. Tune I’se the B’ye

We’re the women who did the work

So men could get the credit-

We said “leave it all to us”

And wish we’d never said it.

Politics was not for us

We left it to our spouses

But NOW we know that women’s place

II Parliamentary Houses

#2. Tune If You’re Happy and You Know It

If you can’t be bothered voting, think again

If you can’t be bothered voting, think again

(slowly)  Keep in mind that its worth noting

If good folk don’t go voting

(slowly) Some toads we’d all reject will reject will prob’ly win

.

#3. Tune Side by Side

Oh… we’re just a gaggle of –Grannies

Urging you off of your –fannies

We’re telling you straight

It’s really your fate

To change your world

Sooooo… We may be a gaggle of– Grannies

But we’re getting off our—fannies

We’re telling you now

Your Grannies know how

We want YOU to vote!

#4. Tune It’s Raining, It’s Pouring

(slowly) It’s raining, it’s pouring

E-lec-tions are never BOR-ing!

GO to the poll; Put x in the hole,

And FEEL good in the morning!

#5. Tune Ants Go Marching

The Grans go marching two by two

Oh yah! Oh yah!

The Grans go marching two by two

Oh yah! Oh yah!

The Grans go marching two by two

We are GOING to vote, and so should you

Let’s ALL march down to the polls (pause, face the audience)

(Slowly) We NEED to be outta the rain.

(Spoken) Political rain, that is.  Ya’ll go and vote now!
