Bedroom Backlash (Carol Hanisch)

“Bedroom Backlash” Sheet Music (pdf).
“Bedroom Backlash” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Carol Hanisch.
Tune: Carol Hanisch.


It was not so long ago. Men had all the say,
When it came to making love at the end of a weary day.
He’d make his moves with no regard for feelings she might have
’Til in resistance she would claim the headache everyone laughs at.
And its, “Yes.” “No.” “Yes.” “No, sorry, I’ve got a headache.”

Oh, for the day when women get free; oh, for the day when men accept it.
No more shames; no more games; just, “Yes, yes, yes!”

Women’s Liberation came along: said men can’t have all the say
Of if and how and where and when at the end of a weary day,
For woman wants her fair share, too, in pleasure as in pay,
But man still wants to be the boss, so he turns away,
With, “No.” “Yes.” “No.” “Yes.” “Damn it, woman, I’ve got a headache.”

Oh, for the day when women gets free; oh, for the day when men accept it.
No more shames; no more games; just, “Yes, yes, yes!”
