We’re the Raging Grannies and we’re raging here today
’Cause someone’s messing with our mail and we’re not gonna play!
Mail boxes and voting sorters being hauled away…
That’s got to stop today!

         We support our Postal Service!
         We support our Postal Service! 
         It’s time to rally ’round and say “no way you’ll shut us down!”
         Save our Postal Service now!

Slow down the mail, slow down the votes, it’s plain as it can be
That you’re out to save yourself by killing our democracy.
Vets denied their medicines and rent checks now delayed…
That’s got to stop today! 
Repeat Chorus

These tactics risk our precious votes; it’s sabotage for sure.
We know that what you’re doing’s just to keep your job secure.
We see right through your tricks and lies, a danger to us all…
So we’ll save our Postal Service and we’ll vote you out this Fall.
Repeat Chorus
