We're clearly soldiers in petty coats
Dauntless crusaders for women's votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they're rather stupid
Off the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughter's daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
Well done sister suffragettes

From Kensington to Billingsgate one hears the restless cry
from every corner of the land womankind arise!
Political equality and equal rights with men
Take heart for Mrs. Pankhurst has been clapped in irons again
No more the meek and mild subservience we
We're fighting for our rights militantly
Never you fear!

Cast of the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughter's daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
Well done
Well done
Well done Sister Suff---
