Radical Cheerleader song (2001)

Radical Cheerleader (2001)

There once was a rocker grrrl with a freak flag to unfurl
And a puppet show on the W T O
With a message that intended to change the world.
She'd go to the center of town where her comrades were locked down,
And she never was afraid when the pepper spray sprayed.
She always stood her ground.  She'd sing

[CHORUS:]
You can't catch me I'm running with the Black Bloc.
Stuff your crotch with a tube sock, copper, I'm running with the Black Bloc.
Oh, you can't catch me I'm running with the Black Block,
And I'll be running with the Black Block 
'Til the revolution is nigh or 'til the day I die.

Now, this rebel grrl gets crass once she's caught a whiff of the old tear gas,
With a radical cheer against the riot gear that goes
 "Acka backa soda cracka kiss my ass,"
And, tough as it may seem, she will stop at no extreme,
'Til an end to oppression with no concession is more than just a dream.  She'll sing:

[CHORUS]

Girls and women have come a long way from the forties 'til today.
We have gotten wise as we organize for equal rights and equal pay,
But there is still misogyny in the twenty-first century,
So get up!  Don't wait!  Let's agitate and smash patriarchy.
(Say what?) Said, "SMASH PAY- TREE- AR- KEY!"  Come on, you!

[CHORUS]
