Lyrics sample - 

Suffragettes   Votes for women!

Men                 Know your place!

Suffragettes   Give us the vote!

Men                 You’re a disgrace!


Well, you can put us in prison,

Send us to jail.

Suffragettes keep marching on:

We shall prevail!

We have your newspaper headline

Please make a note.

Women fight for equal rights (x3)

Give us the vote!


This song features in 'The Keymaster', a brilliant 'modular' musical for children, in which they are taken on an entertaining journey through time, visiting key periods in British history.
