Ever since the world began,
We've merely been Man's chattel.
We are playthings in his plan-
He likes to hear us prattle.
I'm a rebel!-Tyrant Man,
I've drawn the sword of battle.
Woman's day is on the way,
And when we have our say, then believe me,
When he walks, he'll never strut;
We'll show him he's no hero.
After all, he's nothing but
A zero or a Nero.


Man, the master, courts disaster
When he tries to master me!
I defy him, fiercely eye him-
I have rights as well as he.
I'm his match,
For I can scratch!
Man, the master, courts disaster
Trying to master me!


Man, ever tyrannical,
I throw off your manacle!
Man, the master, courts disaster
Trying to master me.
