Promoting women ahead of men
Negative action sets the rules,
So men can never get employed
Just to cosset sexist fools.

Promoting women ahead of men
Negative action sets the rules,
So men can never get employed
Just to cosset sexist fools.

They slandered one-hundred and sixty-six
For campaigning for equality,
"No!Women must be put first!"
Said those with no morality.

So negative action carries on
Especially when Labor is in power,
So as much as Lib-Nat's aren't much better
A Labor government's our darkest hour.

Equality should be the goal
For every federal government,
But now with Big Sister watching over
Equality is dead and spent.

"No more jobs for girls!"
Should be our battle cry,
As we stand up for democracy
Before freedom can truly die.

It's promotions based on cleavage
Not upon the skill at hand,
No decent person thinks it's right
Still, injustice swamps this land.

So girls no longer even try
They've become the bludger gender,
They know they'll always get employed
Ahead of more skilled contenders.
