Sufferin' Till Sufferage: Schoolhouse Rock- Woman's Rights.

Lyrics from:
http://www.school-house-rock.com/Suff.html

Now you have heard of Women's Rights,
And how we've tried to reach new heights.
If we're "all created equal"...
That's us too!

(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 hand the was 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 nineteenth amendment struck
down the 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 nineteenth 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 nineteenth amendment
Struck down that restrictive rule. (Right on! Right on!)
Yes, the nineteenth amendment
Struck down that restrictive rule
Yeah
Yeah Yeah
Right on!
We got it now!
Since 1920
Sisters, unite!
Vote on!
