Nina Gordon - Suffragette Lyrics




Here i go
one, two, three, four

I'll make history
a suffragette said
I'm clever to do this forever

Well you don't know me yet
but i'm a suffragette
i suffer for your sins and wash them all away
some kind of jesus christ, check out my sacrifice
a pretty poison flower bringing you the sweetest juice

and you'll remember me
i'm making history
just you wait, just you wait and see

I'll make history
a suffragette said
I'm clever to do this forever

[chorus]
So don't try to stone me
you don't own me
baby you don't know me yet
don't try to break you, you can't take me
cos baby i'm a suffragette

my momma said to me
be what you wanna be
just take your time
enjoy the ride along the way

and you'll remember me
i'm making history
just you wait, just you wait and see

I'll make history
a suffragette said
I'm clever to do this forever

[chorus]
You cannot fight me
you don't have to like me
you don't even know me yet
don't try to break me, you can't take me
cos baby i'm a suffragette

suffragette

[bridge x2]
it's like you fell asleep in a cab
and woke up in another land
and everything's changed, so its ok
it's better this way

so come along
cause without hestitation
change the channel baby, try another station
i fill you up with a sense of elation
i build you up with the sex education

[chorus]

Here i go
one, two, three, four

  1. Jon Dark '76

    This is BRILL! Nicely done! I (loled several times) ;-)

    Pandora Lapin

    Thank you!

  2. Pandora Lapin

    You missed some good female musos but good try.

  3. seulgi seulgi bulgogi

    Nice work! Always loved this song.

  4. FoundAgainLion

    Love it! I think Wendy Melvoin plays guitar on this.

  5. Pandora Lapin

    Thanks! Obviously I'm an amateur but you've gotta start somewhere. And both Nina and Louise (Veruca Salt) are *amazing* songwriters.

  6. XXXyoungloveXXX

    Wow, not so many views on this song and only one like? Sheesh! I thought this song was more popular. Either way, got my vote in as number two. I'm not really big on the female movement, but the song is original so I'm feeling it.
