Oh oh oh oh…
Caught in a Bad Romance!
Oh oh oh oh…
Caught in a Bad Romance!

Vo vo votes ah ah aah
Whoa aa, won’t ta aah
Stop ha, ooo la la
Til we have suffrage!
Vo vo votes ah ah aah
Whoa aa, won’t ta aah
Stop ha, ooo la la
Til we have suffrage!

It’s gotten ugly
They passed the 15th
Still women have no right
Nor guarantee
To liberty
Child, health, wealth
Or property

Hey! We’ll raise our banner
Across this land hey!
‘Cause franchise isn’t just
The right of a man
Universal
Yuh, yuh, yuh, it’s universal!
Yuh, yuh, yuh, universal!

You know we don’t want to
Take freedoms from you
Just want our rights and nothing less

We cry for freedom
Oh, hear our voice
And see we’re equal to all men!
Oh oh oh oh…
We the whole people
Not just male citizens
Formed this most perfect Union!

Oh oh oh oh…
Caught in a Bad Romance!
Oh oh oh oh…
Caught in a Bad Romance!

Vo vo votes ah ah aah
Whoa aa, won’t ta aah
Stop ha, ooo la la
Til we have suffrage!

It is a horror
A cruel design
That makes it criminal
a right that is mine
I want the vote
vote, vote, vote
I want to vote

Well, I think you’re psycho
I think that it’s sick
I’m queen of my home, raise my babies
That’s it
Don’t need to vote
No, no, she don’t want to vote!
No, no, no, don’t want to vote

The rights of citizens
Shall not be denied or abridged
New legislation, baby!
By the United States
On account of sex

We cry for freedom
Oh hear our voice
And see we’re equal to all men!
Oh oh oh oh…
We the whole people, not
Just male citizens
Formed this most perfect Union

Oh oh oh oh…
Caught in a Bad Romance!
Oh oh oh oh…
Caught in a Bad Romance!

Vo vo votes ah ah
Whoa ah, won’t ta ah
Stop ha, ooo la la
Til we have suffrage!

March, march, be courageous
Fighting
For our rights we may just
Start greatness for the ages
Freedom it is contagious
March, march, be courageous
Fighting
For our rights we may just
Start greatness for the ages
Remember the ladies

Not to be above
but equal to all men
We only ask to be
Part of this Union!
Comme dirait le Français:
c’est Démocratie!
Permettez-moi participer!*

I’m a citizen
Of this nation!
An American!
I want suffrage! And independence!

We cry for freedom
Oh, hear our voice
And see we’re equal to all men!
Oh oh oh oh…
We the whole people, not
Just male citizens
Formed this most perfect Union!

Oh oh oh oh…
I want to wear pants!
Caught in a Bad Romance
I want my suffrage!
Oh oh oh oh…
And independence!
Caught in a Bad Romance!

Vo vo votes ah ah
Woah ah, won’t ta ah
Stop ha, ooo la la
Now we have suffrage!

    When will these deprived women demand to be required to register for the draft and then to be drafted into the Army and sent off to participate, against their free will, in a war crime (America still has many to choose from) that was initiated by lies from their Commander-in-Chief?

    What the real Women’s History of the last 60 years has brought us is a succession of women who by reason of their gender have enjoyed exemption from compulsory military service but who have nonetheless risen through the political ranks to become vocal advocates of military intervention, e.g., Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, Madeleine Albright, Condoleezza Rice, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice.

    When I see these self-absorbed feminists demand that women be drafted for these military misadventures, then I will once again believe in the legitimacy of women’s liberation as a concept, but never again as a force for betterment of the human condition, as I once did.

    As it exists now, it and its many advocates are nothing but frauds.
