"THE HOUSE" that man built – Suffragettes of note
This is "THE HOUSE" that man built,
And these are the Suffragettes of note
Determined to fight for their right to vote,
For they mean to be, each one an M.P.
And they'll keep their vow some fine day you'll see,
For the Suffragette is determined…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: Minister
This is "THE HOUSE" that man built,
And this is the Minister weary and worn
Who treated the Suffragette with scorn,
Who wanted to Vote, and (a saying to quote),
Dared him to tread on the tail of the coat
Of the bold Suffragette determined to…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: A wonderful change
This is "THE HOUSE" that man built
But oh what a wonderful change inside
The women as well as the men preside

For the men now admit that the ladies' have brains
And are every bit quite as fitted to…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: The poor Suffragette
THIS IS "THE HOUSE" THAT MAN BUILT,

AND this is the home
of the poor Suffragette,
And there's room for
a great many more

We place them on plank

To stop…

This is "THE HOUSE" that man built,
And this is the Flag of the Woman's Franchise,

Determined in Parliament one day to sit,
The bold Suffragette who is…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: Statesmen
THE HOUSE that our Statesmen for years have controlled Ruling the world with mind fearless and bold;
Can Women expect
To rule such a HOUSE.
She that’s afraid of a poor little mouse:
NO! NO!! Suffragette your place in not yet,
Inside THE HOUSE…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: Suffragette lady of note
THIS IS "THE HOUSE" THAT MAN BUILT,
AND this is the Suffragette lady of note
Who once used A BRICK for recording her vote,
Who one fine day went
With the fullest intent;
To show the Prime Minister business was meant,
But the bold Suffragette…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: Suffragette
THIS IS "THE HOUSE" THAT MAN BUILT
AND this is the poor little Suffragette
Who tried, Oh so hard, in this HOUSE to get:
Tho' it wasn't a crime
Still with patience sublime
She spends the best part of her life doing time;
OH FIE! Suffragette
Be…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: The poor Suffragette
THIS IS "THE HOUSE" THAT MAN BUILT,
AND this is the policeman all tattered and torn
Who wished women voters had never been born,
Who nevertheless
Tho it caused him distress
Ran them all in,
In spite of their dress:
The poor Suffragette
Who…

"THE HOUSE" that man built: Members
"THE HOUSE" that man built,
And these are the Members who've been sitting late
Coming out arm in arm, from a lengthy debate,
Women and men 'neath the shade of Big Ben
In the Year - well we cannot exactly say when;
But the brave Suffragette very…
