Women Have Hammers

 Tune:  If I Had a Hammer

Now women have hammers

And women have trades

And women have jobs to fill

All over this land.

They’ll hammer out shelter

They’ll hammer out freedom

They’ll hammer out the love between their brothers and their sisters

All over this land.

Now women have voices

And women have songs

And women have warning bells

All over this land.

They rail against dangers

They rail against poverty

They rail against the gap between their brothers and their sisters

All over this land.

Now girls will have hammers

And girls will have tools

And girls will have songs to sing

All over this land.

They’ll sing about justice

They’ll sing about freedom –

They’ll wipe out the gap between their brothers and their sisters

All over this land.

Now women have hammers

And women have trades

And women have jobs to fill

All over this land.

They’ll hammer out justice

They’ll hammer out freedom –

They’ll hammer out the love between their brothers and their sisters

All over this land.
