A call to VOTE.
Editors — a video embed would be marvelous and greatly appreciated!
I can’t walk to my car late at night while on the phone.
I can’t open up my windows when I’m home alone
I can’t go to a bar without a chaperone.
And I can’t wear a miniskirt if it’s the only one I own.
It sure is scary time for boys.
Yeah gentlemen band together make some noise
It’s really tough when your reputation’s on the line
And any woman you’ve insulted could turn up any time
Yeah it sure is scary time for guys.
Can’t speak to any woman or look her in the eyes
It’s so confusing is it rape or is it just being nice
So inconvenient that you have to even think twice
I can’t jog around the city with headphones on my ears.
I can’t speak out against my rapist after 35 years.
I can’t be taken seriously if I’m holding back tears
And I can’t ever speak earnestly about all these fears.
It’s not such a scary time for boys
They’ve always had the upper hand they’ve always had a choice
It’s time for women to act up use our collective voice
The day to vote’s November sixth
So let’s go make some noise
