Woman's Rights Randolph-Ozark Folksong There's very much trouble at present Throughout the political ring, The foreign affairs or domestic Of which I am going to sing. Discussing the Silver Bell question Is keeping my husband out nights. He's mad if I happen to mention The subject we call Woman's Rights. cho: We're going to vote at the election Oh Dear! How it'll trouble the men The think that under woman's direction They'll never hold office again. He says we were never created To govern, to rule or to vote. He says we'll all go to destruction When we get to steering the boat. But he knows he is misrepresenting For in fact he's ten thousand times said That women all govern their husbands Commencing the day they were wed. He says we must shoulder a musket, Must share with the men in their fights; Must swear, play cards and drink whiskey And that's what he calls Woman's Rights. But I don't give a fig for his growling I'll go to the polls if I can And I'll vote as I please, but to spite him, I'll vote for the handsomest man.
