My mama didn’t raise a silent girl
She raised a rioter, a rebel.
Not a sit in the corner, plastered on smile girl
She raised a shouter, righteous anger.
My mama didn’t raise a good girl
Do what you’re told girl.
She raised a no justice no peace girl, a break down the walls girl.
My mama didn’t raise a complicit girl
She raised a know what’s right, do what’s right girl.
Use your voice girl. Fight the man girl. Stand up for them girl.
Fierce as fuck girl
Set the world on fire with your tongue, girl
Feed the hungry babies from your breast girl
Raise the boys with softer hearts girl
Smash the patriarchy with your fists girl
Rise up and Repeal girl.
