  • (Yeah!) But you will proba ... bly not recall That it's not been too ... too long at all, Since we even had the right to Cast a vote. (Well!) Well, sure, some men bowed down and called us "Mrs." (Yeah!) Let us hang the wash out and wash the dishes, (Huh!) But when the time rolled around to elect a president... What did they say, Sister? (What did they say?) They said, uh, "See ya later, alligator, And don't forget my ... my mashed potatoes, 'Cause I'm going downtown to cast my vote for president." (Tell 'em 'bout it!) (What a shame, Sisters!) Since 1920... Sisters, unite! Vote on!

  • (Yeah!) But you will proba ... bly not recall That it's not been too ... too long at all, Since we even had the right to Cast a vote. (Well!) Well, sure, some men bowed down and called us "Mrs." (Yeah!) Let us hang the wash out and wash the dishes, (Huh!) But when the time rolled around to elect a president... What did they say, Sister? (What did they say?) They said, uh, "See ya later, alligator, And don't forget my ... my mashed potatoes, 'Cause I'm going downtown to cast my vote for president." Oh, we were suffering until suffrage, Not a woman here could vote, no matter what age, Then the 19th Amendment struck down that restrictive rule. (Oh yeah!) And now we pull down on the lever, Cast our ballots and we endeavor To improve our country, state, county, town, and school. (Tell 'em 'bout it!) Those pilgrim women who ... Who braved the boat Could cook the turkey, but they ... They could not vote. Even Betsy Ross, who sewed the flag, was left behind that first election day. (What a shame, Sisters!) Then Susan B. Anthony (Yeah!) and Julia Howe, (Lucretia!) Lucretia Mott, (and others!) they showed us how; They carried signs and marched in lines Until at long last the law was passed. Oh, we were suffering until suffrage, Not a woman here could vote, no matter what age, Then the 19th Amendment struck down that restrictive rule. (Oh yeah!) And now we pull down on the lever, Cast our ballots and we endeavor To improve our country, state, county, town, and school. (Right On! Right On!) Yes the 19th Amendment Struck down that restrictive rule. (Right On! Right On!) Yes the 19th Amendment Struck down that restrictive rule. (Yeah, yeah! Yeah, yeah! Right on! We got it now!) Since 1920... Sisters, unite! Vote on!
