"Hey, Look Us Over"
Tune: Hey, Look Me Over
Lyrics: San Jose Raging Grannies
Hey, look us over, Women proud and strong
Time to hear our voices, time to hear our song.
Silent for too long, powerless as well,
But now the earth is crying out,
And women will respond by saying,
“Let’s work together, build not destroy,
Teach love and kindness to every girl and boy,
‘Cause the planet’s home to all of us,
And that’s the song we bring,
Hear the Raging Grannies sing!”

Grannies all over the world are devoted to making a difference in this world of ours. We work for peace, social and economic justice and protection of this earth we call home. No small matter. Grannies are courageous elders who care passionately about the future of our global children and grandchild and all species living on Mother Earth. We believe that singing helps to keep peoples spirits alive and makes clear to others why they are standing up against what is happening in their world and that they are not alone.
...and the Grannies marched and sang in Eugene
"OUT OF THE ROCKING CHAIR,
INTO THE FIRE"
(Tune: “Oh, Susannah!”)
Lyrics by the Triangle Raging Grannies
1. Oh, in Oregon we're marching Raging Grannies proud and strong,
With our fancy granny hats we march and sing our raging song.
Women power! We will not be ignored.
We stand in solidarity
With all women; hear us roar!
2. Oh, we'll fight for women's rights to plan our families as we choose,
And we're rising up to say that we'll no longer be abused.
3. Oh, we support the immigrants who come from many lands;
They deserve a break and decent pay and women’s helping hands.
4. Oh, our Muslim sisters we’ll protect from bigots day and night.
All must be free to walk the streets without a fear or fright.
5. Oh, the right to marry who we love must be a right for all,
And the right to pee where we see fit in a private bathroom stall.
6. We want equal pay for equal work, and family leave for all,
And we’ll stand in solidarity; as women we stand tall.
7. And no matter if our skin is black, or tan, or red, or brown,
We will not sit by while our children die. We will beat the racists down.
8. Women fought and died for voting rights; now we’re rising up to say,
That you’d better watch out 'cause we’ve got clout; so don’t get in our way!
Women power! We will not be ignored!
And we'll make a fuss if you mess with us!
We are women; hear us roar!
YOU CAN’T TROMP ON ME
Tune: Jingle Bells
Oh - You can’t tromp, you can’t tromp, you can’t tromp on me!
We still have rights and we will fight ‘til everyone is free, Oh!
You can’t tromp, you can’t tromp, you can’t tromp on me!
We still have rights and we will fight for human dignity.
We have the right to speak, and demonstrate it’s true
And we will not be stopped, by bully thugs like you!
We won’t apologize, or take back what we say.
We’ll speak our minds but we’ll be kind . . . non-violence is the way!
In – these- United States- there’s -room –enough- for- all.
The- black – the brown – trans – straight and queer – and immigrants
- one – and – all.
We’ll keep on speaking out, for civil rights and peace,
But we will not be tromped upon! This violence must cease!
