Just for fun!

My children have become enamored with Mary Poppins ("Poppins" to my 2 year old), so the songs have been playing non-stop for days. This morning I payed closer attention to the song "Sister Suffragette" and thought it would make a nice song with a little tweaking. You can find the original lyrics here.

We're clearly soldiers prepared to fight
And dauntless crusaders for mothers’ rights
Though we adore OBs 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 Birthragette!"

From West Coast to East Coast
One hears the restless cries!
From ev'ry corner of the land:
"Motherkind, arise!"
Birth choice equality, down with ACOG and then
Take heart! For mama midwives have 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!
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray!
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
"Well done! Well done! Well done Sister Birthragette!"
