We Need Planned Parenthood

Lyrics by: Vicki Ryder (based on original version by Peninsula Raging Grannies)
Gaggle: RochesterSoFloNorth Carolina
Tune: Solidarity Forever

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.

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!
