Laura Nyro — The Right To Vote lyrics

Thank you sirs for the right to vote
Bet you didn't know I had a voice in my throat
Now let's see should I vote for "A" or "B"
"A" talks a lot
But not to me
"B" wants war
Kill or flunk
Forget the vote - I'll just go out and get drunk
They say a woman's place
Is to wait and serve
Under the veil
Submissive and dear
But I think my place
Is in a ship from space
To carry me
The hell out of here
Patriarchal great religions
Full of angels
Forgiving and fair
While they push the buttons and blow up the place
Might as well
Make room for a worthier race
They say a woman's place
Is to wait and serve
Under the veil
Submissive and dear
But I think my place
Is in a ship from space
To carry me
The hell out of here
All the colours in a race riot
In the land of the free
All the women are on a diet
I'm hungry
Are you hungry
I'm hungry
So hungry
For peace and quiet
Thank you sirs for the right to vote
The microwave
And the old mink coat
Now let's see should I vote for "A" or "B"
"A" talks a lot
But not to me
"B" wants war
Kill or flunk
Forget the vote - I'll just go out and get drunk
They say a woman's place
A woman's place
