Give The Ballot To The Mothers, song lyrics

Song: Give The Ballot To The Mothers
Lyrics: Rebecca N. Hazard (1)

Music: to the tune of "Marching Through Georgia"
Year: 1913
Genre: Traditional
Country: USA


Bring the good old bugle, boys!
We'll sing another song.
Sing it with a spirit that shall
Start the cause along.
Sing it as we ought to sing it,
Cheerily and strong,
Giving the ballot to the mothers.

CHORUS:
Hurrah! Hurrah! We bring the jubilee!
Hurrah! Hurrah! The homes they shall be free!
So we'll sing the chorus from the mountains to the sea.
Giving the ballot to the mother.

Bring the dear old banner, boys
And fling it to the wind;
Mother, wife and daughter,
Let it shelter and defend.
"Equal Rights" our motto is,
We're loyal to the end.
Giving the ballot to the mothers.

(Chorus)
