Lyrics and Chords

[Mary Poppins]

[ D+ = xx0332 ; Abdim7 = xx0101 ]

We're clearly soldiers in petticoats
Dauntless crusaders for women's votes
Though we adore men individually
We agree that as a group they're rather stupid

/ D D+ D6 D+ / D D6 AEm7 A7 / Em7 A7 D Bm / E7 -  AEm C7A7 /

Cast off the shackles of yesterday
Shoulder to shoulder into the fray
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
And they'll sing in grateful chorus
Well done, sister suffragette

/ " / " / Em7 A7 / DAm7 B7 / D A7 DEm7 D / 

From Kensington to Billingsgate one hears the restless cries
In every corner of the land, womankind arise!
Political equality and equal rights with men
Take heart for Mrs. Pankhurst has been clapped in irons again

/ Bm F#7 Bm F#7 / Bm F#7 - Bm / D A7D A7 / D A7 Em7A7 D / 

No more the meek and mild subservients, we
We're fighting for our rights militantly
Never you fear!

/ Abdim7 - A - / Abdim7 - A7 - / 

So cast off the shackles of yesterday...
...Well done, well done, well done, sister suffragette
