From The Horse’s Mouth.

I don’t think I want to know your idea of respect,

The things that you come out with, they make me suspect

That the definition you would use would simply not agree

With what I would expect to hear and also what I’d see.

 

It seems to me you’re one of those old-fashioned good-time boys,

Who look at any females as just potential toys.

Well, listen hard and listen good, we have won the right

To be treated equally, and yes – we had to fight.

 

Perhaps you are misguided, perhaps you’ve been misled,

But if you think you’re desirable you’re deluded in the head.

I’ll give you an example of just how you are wrong --

If you were the last man living, humans would be gone.

 

You can shout as much of being set up, of you being framed,

But the evidence is everywhere, perhaps you’re being shamed.

You can’t dispute the words you said, that show that attitude

Of looking down on women with a vision that is crude.

 

I can’t believe that state of mind is really that wide-spread,

That so many supporters are really that brain-dead

To not see the backward steps that would be taken if you win,

Not just for women but for men too if you get voted in.
