Let’s hear it for HB2,

Protecting me and you;

Now you won’t have to fear

That anyone queer

Will be peeing next to you.

 

Let’s hear it for HB2,

And the bigots who voted it through;

Now you all must prove

When your bowels move

That you know just who is who.

 

So check the sign on the door
And then do something more,
Prove your sex
To the old rednecks

Who voted for this law.
With five minutes to decide,

They set gay rights aside;

And bigotry

Has been set free,
But we still have our pride.

 

And there’s one thing we all know.

As we did to old Jim Crow:
Again and again
We’ll fight ’til we win!

HB2 has got to go!

CHORUS:

They lie through their teeth with the greatest of ease,

Those bigots who’d bring us all down to our knees;

So we’ve got to stand strong and repeal Hate Bill 2,

It’s not just about bathrooms, we know.

 

They thought they’d distract us with a transgender law,

But we’ve read the fine print and we know it’s much more:

Taking rights from our workers, our cities and towns...

It’s not just about bathrooms, we know.

REPEAT CHORUS

 

Minimum wages and fair labor laws

Are some of the things that we’re now fighting for;

And the right to appeal in our very own state

When we face injustice, racism and hate.

 

They think they’re immune from our fed-er-al laws,

And ignore them just like in the old Civil War.

But we’ll fight them in court and we’ll rage and we’ll roar,

‘Cause it’s not just about bathrooms, we know.

REPEAT CHORUS

 

The homophobes pushing this bill quickly through

Thought we’d be fooled by the language they drew.

Government overreach surely must be

When they start making laws about where we can pee.

 

So it’s Monday in Raleigh, and we’re back today

To tell Pat McCrory that we’re here to stay,

And we’ll keep coming back if he drags us away...

‘Cause it’s not just about bathrooms, we know.

REPEAT CHORUS

 

 

 

WE’RE the Raging Grannies and we’re here to take a stand,
To KEEP choice free for women and to keep our families planned.
We WON’T go back to hangers if our right to choose is banned.
We RAGE for women’s lives.

CHORUS: NO more dying in back alleys.
WE’LL keep raging in these rallies
UnTIL we stop these crazy schemes against Planned Parenthood;
We RAGE for women’s lives.

We STAND here [on the street] and wonder at the sad disgrace
That the RIGHTS for which we fought might disappear without a trace.
So we STAND now with Planned Parenthood to save the human race.
We RAGE for women’s lives.

We’ve COME here to [this rally] and it’s not just for the sport,
To TELL the world that we must keep the rights for which we fought,
The RIGHT to plan our families and the freedom to abort.
We RAGE for women’s lives.
REPEAT CHORUS

We WON’T lie down and take it if they make these budget cuts
While they SPEND our taxes for their wars; we think that’s really nuts!
It’s TIME to tell the world there can’t be any ifs or buts,
We NEED Planned Parenthood!
REPEAT CHORUS

We’ll remember in November
When we vote, as well we should,
How you tried to regulate us
And to kill Planned Parenthood.

We fought hard for women’s ri-ights
And we won’t go back in time.
Keep abortion free and legal;
It’s our choice – it’s not a crime.

You men in office think you own us
But our bodies belong to us.
Keep your laws off my vagina;
You have no bus’ness in my uterus.

You would keep us in the kitchen,
Barefoot and pregnant, too.
But we’ll remember in November
And vote you out! Your time is through!

Oh, Planned Parenthood, what they do is good
For women’s health and women’s choice.
So this time we’re getting organized;
We rise together with one voice.

And we’ll remember in November
When we vote, as well we should.
We will vote you out of office
And we’ll save Planned Parenthood.

Right here, in our country

There exist

Children who don’t have enough food

They are in our midst

 

Each day, they go to school with

Emptiness

Grumbling in their tummies

How can they learn like this

 

No oatmeal, berries, yogurt or

chicken, carrots, or cole slaw

Sustain them

Some wonder why they don’t care to

Read or write like others do

But their hunger

Drains them

 

Food stamps would help their families

To provide

Enough and more nutritious

Food so their kids can thrive

 

Farmers’ markets and gardens

Could help a lot

But parents need money to buy food

That’s what so many have not

 

Their kids need good food just the same

As yours and mi-ine,

We should be ashamed!

I’m a corporation
And I believe in god
That doesn’t mean I have to do
Anything that’s hard

Like having safe workplaces
For my employees
Or making sure my waste products
Don’t kill all the trees

Though I’m a legal fiction
My immortal soul
Will surely go to hell if I
Cover birth control

Whether they are Hindu
A Jew or atheist
All my female workers
Must submit to this

Corporate Christians can both
Have and eat our cake
Control employees’ private lives
While they work without a break

Post-birth human beings
Have no right to life
But the new corporate life form
Will never ever die!

When I sit down for breakfast

I look into my bowl

Expecting to see corn flakes

But instead I see a... [spoken] genetically modified organism.

 

And when I take my lunch break

I eat a BLT

But instead of eating lettuce

I’m surprised to find a... [spoken] genetically modified organism

 

At supper time I’m ready

For grandma’s hearty stew

So you can just imagine

My reaction to these... [spoken] genetically modified organisms.

 

We don’t want to be eating

Monsanto’s GMOs.

We want the right to choose what’s good,

‘Cause heaven only knows

What GMOs will do to us,

And to our Grandkids, too.

So we say label all our food!

We’re tired of getting screwed!

 

[Alternate last lines for the meek: “Give GMOs the boot!” or “It’s up to me and you.”]

 

 

 

Did you hear what happened in Washington town?
Those neo-con bastards shut our government down.

This was no idle tantrum; it was part of their scheme
To silence the people, and put an end to the dream.

They’re really quite clever, those neo-con jerks;
They had to stop Obamacare ’cause we’d see that it works.

Then people would rise up and say that we must
Have more government programs that help all of us.

They’ll call us all socialists, but whatever they say,
We know folks will die without health care today.

They’re holding us hostage to their evil plans.
They shut down the government and now they demand
That we must negotiate, but we Grannies say NO!
And come next election, they’ve all got to go!

This is still a democracy, if they like it or not.
And we won’t be held hostage to their neo-con plot.

So let’s pull together and give a loud shout,
And vote our own interests, and throw the bums out.

The original was revised [post-Bush] by Sunny Armer.

Where is the healthcare

For vets at Walter Reed

Congress, support the troops!

Don’t make them jump through hoops

To get the benefits

That they so sorely need

Don’t put them on the street

And shut the door.

 

Some War on Terror vets

May have PTSD

Severe brain injuries

And some are amputees

Don’t send them to Iraq

Or to Afghanistan

Keep them all safe at home

Away from war

 

They’re facing homelessness

Divorce and suicide

Mis’ry is all around

That’s what our vets have found

Let’s tell Obama

To stop this deadly game

It’s time we all stand up

To shout NO MORE

Some say we need insurance companies
To run our healthcare any way they please
So whaddaya think, are they doing the job
Or does it make you wanna sob

Make 600 calls, and whaddaya know
Your claim is denied and you’re on your own
To save your life, would depress their bottom line
Nothing personal, of course, they hope you’ll be fine

Well, we say the market’s OK for some things
Like deodorant, dishes, raincoats and rings
But the importance of good medical care
Means we really gotta make it fair

Making it fair for everyone
Means care for all, not only some
What the doc says you need, is what you should get
And not have to take on crippling debt

We’d rather pay for healthcare than guns and bombs
Why’s there always enough for the Pentagon
National health is the way to go
We’d get better care, for the same dough

If Canada, Europe, and Japan
Also Cuba and Thailand
Could figure this out, what’swrong with us?
Healthcare for alL

IT’S UP TO US [spoken]

We’re the Raging Grannies and we’re here to take a stand,
To break the chain of our abuse across this mighty land.
We proclaim our dignity, and justice our demand…
We’re Rising Up today!

Chorus:   No more rape and no more beatings.
Women rise! We're tired of pleading.
We’re rising up to tell you that our bodies are our own;
We’re Rising Up today!

We rise in [name your town] today to say it’s a disgrace
That women’s rights might simply disappear without a trace.
We dance and sing and shout out loud to save the human race!
We’re Rising Up today!

Repeat Chorus

What makes you men think you can take your liberties with us?
We're mothers, sisters, aunts and daughters, kickin' up a fuss.
Your violations end today, there's no more to discuss!
We’re Rising Up today!

Repeat Chorus

We dance today for justice, and it’s not just for the sport.
We own our bodies; we’ll protect the rights for which we fought...
The right to step out unafraid; the freedom to abort.
We’re Rising Up today!

Repeat Chorus

We’re the Raging Grannies and we’re here to take a stand,
To keep choice free for women all across our mighty land.
We won’t go back to hangers if our right to choose is banned!
We’re Rising Up today!

Chorus:   No more rape and no more beatings.
Women rise! We're tired of pleading.
We’re rising up to tell you that our bodies are our own;
We’re Rising Up today!

We stand here in [name your city] and wonder at the sad disgrace
That women’s rights might simply disappear without a trace.
We dance and sing and shout out loud to save the human race!
We’re Rising Up today!

Clean air, clean water, a liveable planet
Healthcare for all and a lot of mass transit
Enough food for everyone, that’s what we sing
These are a few of our favorite things

Union protection for ev-e-ry worker
Born here or somewhere else, why should it matter
Funding for artists and scientists too
Of our fav’rite things, these are a few

But hatred of gays, blacks and women
Makes us feel so bad
And as we keep losing our favorite things
It all makes us really MAD!

Occupy Wall Street stood up to the banksters
Who are not as nice as a mouth full of cankers
Wisconsin workers, they thrilled us to bits
But most of the time we’re scared out of our wits!

There’s unemployment, a broiling planet
And Tea Party jerks
And as we all rocket back to the 10th century
We’re screaming this really HURTS!

“Legitimate rape” is great birth control.
So says Todd Akin, and he oughta know.
If we are raped we can rest unafraid,
‘Cause we can’t get pregnant if forcibly laid.

Our female bodies are clever that way,
We only get pregnant when we say “okay.”
Doctors have told him, so it must be so,
The stork only comes if we don’t say “No!”

Rape won’t make babies and that is a fact;
There’s no global warming; the Earth’s really flat.
We heard it on FOX News so it must be true.
Well, Mr. Akin, we say “FUCK YOU!”

Try not to get sick
Or you might as well die.
Avoid accidents,
I’m telling you why
You can’t afford medical, care

You pay premiums,
Meet deductibles
Then you find out you’re
Not eligible
For that operation, you need.

BRIDGE

Well, Michael Moore, he said it
Hit the nail right on the head
Take the profit out of healthcare
Or dry we’ll all be bled

In Europe, Japan,
And Canada, too,
In Cuba, Thailand
And Sri Lanka, YOU [point to audience]
Will see universal healthcare.

BRIDGE

In lots of other places
That’s just what they have done
Told insurance and drug companies
To stop having so much fun.

Call us socialists,
We really don’t mind.
Just look at the facts.
We know you will find
Everybody must have healthcare.

We Rage to End All War [Mother’s Day Version 2011]
(Tune: “Battle Hymn of the Republic”)
New lyrics by Vicki Ryder

We’re the Raging Grannies and we want you all to know
That war is not the way to peace and we must all say NO!
We’ve seen it time and time again – war’s not the way to go!
We rage to end all war!

Chorus:   
         Happy Mother’s Day to all you Grannies,
         Here’s hoping that you’ll get up off your fannies,
         And join us on this day as we proclaim with all our might:
         It’s time to end all war!

We put away our knitting, tuck the grandkids into bed,
Throw on our shawls and aprons, put our hats upon our heads.
Inspired by the suffragists, we do not lightly tread,
We rage to end all war!

Chorus

They took our sons and daughters and they sent them off to die;
Said we had to kill Osama ’though those weapons were a lie.
Now some other mother bids her child a tearful last good-bye.
We rage to end all war!

Chorus

 They want to take our Medicare, our schools and parks and more,
So they’ll have the money that they need to keep on makin’ war.
We’re here to say on Mother’s Day that really makes us sore!
We rage to end all war!

Chorus

In late March 2011, Florida State Rep. Scott Randolph (D-Orlando) commented during a floor debate that while the GOP is loathe to regulate big business, it thinks nothing of regulating a woman's reproductive choices. Therefore, he suggested that to maintain control of her own uterus, a woman might need to incorporate it.  Randolph was quickly rebuked by his GOP counterparts for saying “u-----” on the House floor, and the word now has been banned from use in the Florida legislature. The Florida ACLU is hot on the case.

The Uterus Song
(Tune: “Bye-Bye Blackbird”)
Lyrics © by Vicki Ryder

If you’re a Republican, it’s okay to screw everyone,
Just don’t say “uterus!”
You can send our kids to war while watching your investments soar,
But don’t say “uterus!”
Taking bribes used to be thought just awful;
Now fat cats pay for your campaigns, that’s lawful…
You can take our rights away and torture folks, that’s still okay.
Just don’t say… that word.

You take funds from Planned Parenthood; you’d take all our rights if ya could,
But don’t say “uterus!”
You think abortion is a sin, but what’s that fetus growin’ in?
Shh! Don’t say uterus!
You can get away with bloody torture,
Just don’t say where you were when the stork brought ya.
We’re glad you’re lookin’ out for us, so stamp your feet and make a fuss
When you hear… that word!

Since when is it a dirty word to say the “u” word? That’s absurd!
We’ll say “uterus.”
We’ll sing it strong and sing it loud; it’s a part of us that makes us proud
So we’ll say “uterus.”
We’re not ashamed to call our parts their right names,
We’re just ashamed of men who play these mind games.
So end the wars and feed the poor; do what you were elected for,
And shout out loud… that word!

Uterus and uterus,and uterus and uterus, uterus, uterus!
Uterus and uterus,and uterus and uterus, uterus, uterus!
Uterus and uterus.....

Based on an essay tentatively attributed to Thom Hartmann (?)

Were you mad when all our taxes
Went to fund a senseless war?
Were you mad when they didn’t catch bin Laden?
Were you mad when they used torture?
Or our jobs went overseas?
No, you’re just mad ‘cause a sick kid might get health care.

Were you mad when folks who voted
Couldn’t get their votes to count?
Were you mad when they gave the rich those tax breaks?
When our government used wiretaps
Or let New Orleans drown?
No, you’re just mad ‘cause a sick kid might get health care.

Were you mad when our surplus
Turned into a deficit?
When we spent eight-hundred billion on the war?
When our schools were going bankrupt
While the fat cats got bailed out?
No, you’re just mad ‘cause a sick kid might get health care.

Were you mad when banks and businesses
Kept piling up the dough
While we lost our jobs, our health care, and our pensions?
When deregulation meant that
People’s houses got foreclosed?
No, you’re just mad ‘cause a sick kid might get health care.

Well, call us socialists
Or call us any name you like,
But we Grannies know the truth and that’s for sure,
We could pay our nation’s debts
And get everyone’s needs met
If we weren’t spending trillions on the war.
(When the people’s needs are met,
Then you can surely bet,
That we won’t be mad when sick kids get free health care.)

There's many out of work,
Health insurance lost.
Let single payer fix it,
It’s not too big a cost.

So: Make it single payer!
Hey, Congress, try again!
Give health care to all people
In the year two thousand ten.

We've been used, abused, ignored,
The profit's at the top.
So many with no insurance,
This scam has got to stop!

So: Make it single payer!
Hey, Congress, try again!
Give health care to all people
In the year two thousand ten.

Single-Payer Health Care
(Melody: Flow Gently, Sweet Afton)
BY Robin A Vosburg (New California Gaggle)

We want single-payer; it'’s what we deserve.
But Obama and Congress have both lost their nerve.
Adequate health care is a human right,
But who can afford it? The cost'’s out of sight!

We want single-payer; it'’s what we deserve.
But Obama and Congress have both lost their nerve.
Now we must buy coverage from insurance crooks,
Which just adds more profit to their bloated books!

We want single-payer; it'’s what we deserve.
But Obama and Congress have both lost their nerve.
We don'’t get health coverage '‘til we'’re sixty-five --
By then it'’s a wonder that we'’re still alive!

We want single-payer; it'’s what we deserve.
But Obama and Congress have both lost their nerve.
They have great health coverage paid for by the state.
Our kids deserve care, too, but they have to wait!

We want single-payer; it'’s what we deserve.
But Obama and Congress have both lost their nerve.
What they'’ve given us is not reform we’re due --
What they'’ve given us is a massive '“f- you'”!

Disabled folks need some assistance,
humanity comes at a price
Now Arnie would cut that assistance,
Does he have a heart made of ice?

CHORUS:
Don't cut, don't cut!
Don't cut the budget we need, we need!
Don't take, don't take!
Don't take home health care away!

We a-all are differently abled,
the safety net could be for you
So Arnie, please think before cutting,
some day you could need some help too!

CHORUS

We Aa-ll are in this together,
who knows what the future will bring?
We know that we must stand together,
so join with the Grannies and sing!

CHORUS

Note: Arnie refers to Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was California governor when we sang this in front of the Federal Building in San Francisco in '09.

Everybody has a body
Comin’ through the door
Here’s a question ‘bout a body
What’s a body for?
I’m the one inside my body
I know how I feel
It’s health and strength and joy in life that
Make my body real.
Leave your Botox in the box
Your silly, silly –cone
I can lift my face with smiles
You leave my bod alone!
My friends come in lots of bodies
Varied in design
Oh bless the day you love your body
Just like I love mine!

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly.
Her health insurance won’t cover it;
I guess she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed some forms
That annoyed and choked and stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to cover the fly.
I don’t know why she swallowed the fly.
I guess she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed her clock.
How absurd to swallow a clock!
She swallowed her clock to gain some time
To fill out the forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to cover her care
For the swallowed fly - why did she swallow the fly?
I guess she’ll die.

There was an old lady who swallowed a hammer.
Imagine that, she swallowed a hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.

My what desperation, to swallow a pol.
She swallowed the pol to grab up the hammer.

She swallowed the forms to get the care
For the swallowed fly; why did she swallow the fly?
I guess she’ll die.

I know an old lady who wouldn’t swallow the line
That health care won’t help her, at least not this time.
She rebelled and threw up the name of the pol.
She swallowed the pol to grab up the hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.
She swallowed the clock to gain some time
To fill out the health forms that stuck inside her.
She swallowed the forms to get the care
For the swallowed fly; why did she swallow the fly?

I know an old lady who demanded health care reform.
“By 2009 we’ve waited too long.”
She demanded health care reform with the great big hope
Never to hear again, “can’t help you this time.”
She rebelled and threw up the name of the pol.
She swallowed the pol to grab up the hammer.
She swallowed the hammer to break the clock.

WHAT WILL WE DO, WHERE WILL WE GO
WHEN WE’RE 84?
WILL THERE BE A LINE UP AT THE EMERGENCY DOOR?
WILL WE KICK THE BUCKET IN THE CORRIDOR?

WHAT WILL WE DO, WHERE WILL WE GO
WHEN WE’RE 85?
WILL THERE BE HEALTH CARE
OR WILL IT BE WEALTH CARE
IF WE’RE STILL ALIVE?

CHORUS: WATCH OUT FOR THOSE BLOBS IN THE WATER.
POLLUTING IN SPITE OF THE RULES.
THEY'RE NOT JUST A HAZARD TO NATURE -
THEY'RE THREATENING THE FAMILY JEWELS.

WHEN SO MANY OF US GOT BREAST CANCER;
NO ONE SEEMED IN A RUSH WITH AN ANSWER.
BUT WOULDN'T YOU KNOW THAT THEY'RE RARING TO GO
NOW THAT RESEARCH HAS SHOWN WHY THE SPERM COUNT IS LOW.

IF YOUR LOVER HAS TROUBLE PERFORMING
REMEMBER, WE GAVE YOU A WARNING.
IF YOU WANT TO BE FRUITFUL AND TO MULTIPLY
FISH HIM OUT OF THAT LAKE AND MAKE SURE HE'S QUITE DRY.

Mary looks after her mother,
Three kids and her sick husband, John.
When she has to pay for their medicine
Most of her paycheque is gone.
She's become medically poor, yes,
She's become medically poor.
She has to pay for their medicine - so
She's become medically poor.

We're scared that the time is a-coming,
When medicare will be no more.
When only the rich will stay healthy
And we will be medically poor.

Yes, we will be medically poor, yes,
We will be medically poor.
Only the rich will stay healthy
And we will be medically poor
