Taking Back The Night

Don’t want quarrels, don’t want fights
We’re just taking back the nights
And the women are marching again
Stop the rapes, we’re not meat
Give us safety in the street
And the women are marching again
Let us stroll along
By the old St. John
Winter and summer, spring and fall
On the common green
Women shall be seen
When the night is made safe for us all.
2) We are brave, we’ve got pride
Why should we be made to hide?
And the women are marching again
We wa;l pm imafraod
In our civic rights parade
And the women are marching again.
3) Violence has no place
In our city space
Why should we have to be afraid?
And throughout this land
We form another strand
In the ‘Take Back The Nighttime parade.
