We’re the Raging Grannies and we’re raging here today,
’Cause it’s time for working people to stand up and have their say.
Cut the tax breaks for the rich and give the workers their full pay!
Save our Postal Service now!

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

We support our teachers, and our farmers planting crops,
And we say the war on Postal Workers simply has to stop.
Through rain and sleet, on ev’ry street, they never let us down,
(So) Save our Postal Service now!

They’ve tried before today to close our Postal Service down,
Like they’ve tried to cut our social nets and leave us all to drown
In student debt and health care bills we can’t afford to pay….
“Enough’s enough!” we Raging Grannies say!

We’re tired of their privatizing; change is overdue.
We’re tired of their lies and we are tired of being screwed!
But we’re the 99 percent – we’re mighty, they are few.
Save our Postal Service now!
