Ragtime Suffragette (Harry Williams and Nat D. Thayer) What's that noise upon the avenue? What's that crowd a-doin' 'round there too? What's the meaning of that awful crash? Has a taxicab got in a smash? Johnny, Johnny run and get your gun. Get in quick or you'll be dead, my son. It would make Napolean quake And shake his head with fear. Oh dear, oh dear, just look, look, look who's here; That ragtime suffragette, She's no household pet, Raggin' with bombshells and raggin' with bricks, Raggin' and naggin' with politics, That ragtime suffragette, Ragtime suffragette, For Lordy, while her husband's wait home to dine, She's just rag-gin' up and down the line. A-shoutin' votes, votes, votes for women, She's a ragtime suffragette. RG
