"The Right to Vote" as written by and Laura Nyro....
Thank you, sirs
For the right to vote
Bet you didn't know
I had a voice in my throat
Now let's see
Should I vote for A or B
A talks a lot
But not to me
And B wants war
Kill or flunk?
Forget the vote
I'll just go out and get drunk

They say a woman?s place
Is to wait and serve
Under the veil
Submissive and dear
But I think my place
Is in a ship from space
To carry me
The hell out of here

Patriarchal great religions
Full of angels
Forgiving and fair
While they push the buttons
And blow up the place
(might as well)
Make room for a worthier race

They say a woman?s place
Is to wait and serve
Under the veil
Submissive and dear
But I think my place
Is in a ship from space
To carry me
The hell out of here

All the colors in a race riot
In the land of the free
All the women are on a diet
I'm hungry
Are you hungry
For peace and quiet?

So thank you, sirs
For the right to vote
The microwave
And the old mink coat
Now let's see
Should I vote for A or B
A talks a lot
But not to me
And B wants war
Kill or flunk?
Forget the vote
I'll just go out and get drunk

They say a woman's place...
