Calgary Raging Grannies are Recruiting!

Lyrics by: Granny Penny
Gaggle: Calgary, Alberta Canada
Tune: The Ballad of Jed Clampett

Well, listen to my story ‘bout a woman that I know
Vowed to give up ironing, and wearing panty hose.
She said I’m gonna take a stand, you just wait and see
So she googled Raging Grannies – right here in Calgary.
Fossil fuels! Fossil fogies! Bad for ducks!

Well the next thing you know, she’s a-carryin’ a sign
Givin’ Stephen and the boys a piece of her own mind
She was wearing an outrageous hat the day that she was born
With a pamphlet in her parasol, she’s singin’ up a storm!
Storm of protest! Oh, shy violet – blow your horn!

So if doilies also leave you cold, and you wanna take a stand
Against the greedy forces that are ruining this land.
Got a bee in your bonnet? And a yen for the stage?
Then come on girl and join us now, it’s really time to rage!
Raging grannies! Old age! Not for sissies!

Well now it’s time to move along, we’ve got some work to do.
But come on down and talk to us, we need someone like you.
No perfect pitch is necessary ~ nor a pretty face
All you need is lots of heart, and in the proper place!
Place for you! Raging Granny ~ Your name here!
