Don't Forget To Vote!


We're clearly soldiers in petticoats
Dauntless crusaders for women's votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they're rather stupid

Cast off the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
Well done, sister suffragette

From Kensington to Billingsgate one hears the restless cries
In 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 subservients, we
We're fighting for our rights militantly
Never you fear!

So cast off the shackles of yesterday...
...Well done, well done, well done, sister suffragette

--Richard and Robert Sherman, "Sister Suffragette," Mary Poppins

I LOVE Mary Poppins...was thinking about this song yesterday when I voted :)

(I don't know why you would buy a drug and then throw it away...does that make any sense? I mean meth is pretty hard...it's not like your sudafed...it's hard core when you buy something like that right? Dude is lying.)
