American Old Time Song Lyrics: 22 Women Of The Day
Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 22
WOMEN OF THE DAY.
Written and sung by Sara Devere.
There is a great change going on,
You can see it every day;
The women are trying to be like men.
And they're bound to have their way.
They have their racket on the sly,
In the courts they make a noise,
They want you all to understand
They're cut out for one o' the boys.
The men will have to take a back seat
If things keep on as they are.
The women are quickly coming to the front,
And the men are way below par.
We've female lawyers in our courts,
Their tongues will make a noise;
They will succeed and mash the judge,
It s the thing to please the boys.
Woman's rights are what we need,
For the men are getting rude,
If you don't believe were changing 'round,
Just look upon the dude.
And Doctor Mary walker is one,
And no one her annoys,
She wears her pants like a real, real man,
You bet she's one o' the boys.
They've got to be physicians,
And you've got to show your tongue.
And they'll rap you hard upon the chest
To try your little lung.
It's mighty nice to have 'em 'round.
To fill your heart with joys,
To kiss your brow and feel your pulse,
It's the thing to please the boys.
