That Sufragette, song lyrics

Song: That Sufragette
Lyrics: Pauline R. Browne

Music: Pauline R. Browne
Year: c.1913
Country: USA

O, the Suffragette, whether blonde or brunette
is the one, O don't forget who'll never run in debt;
O, her mind isn't set on a fine aigrette,
And you can bet that she is not a coquette.
Not Mannish enough to require a "Gillette",
Not bold, not rough an not given to fret;
Oh, the finest little woman that you surely ever met
Is the nineteen thirteen Suffragette.
This song was originally posted on
O, you often meet her upon the street,
And altho' her gown is simple, she is always neat;
In her shoes there's room for her shapely feet
And her unpainted face is very sweet,
If a crowded car can't afford a seat,
She doesn't look sour and completely beat;
Disposition sweet as candy,
Suffragettes are fine and dandy,
They are women you should want to greet.
