First they fight abortion, birth control is next,

Then comes sex if you’re not married, finally, out goes sex!

Put the prayers back in the schools, install "parochiaid,"

Allow for corporal punishment, and then you got it made!

Chorus: We’re going back, back to the good ole days

When men were really men and women knew their place

Back, back a couple of centuries

And welcome back the days of the theocracy!

2. The family is so holy, there must be no divorce

And if a wife is not content, she must adjust, of course

And if he’s forced to beat her, it’s all for her own good

She must know what her limits are, as any woman should.,


3. The next to go is daycare,

it’s all a commie plot!

What could be more fulfilling than a child, wanted or not?

A woman’s world is housework, God wanted it that way

A salaried job degrades her since she never works for pay


4. They teach us women’s lot is "love honor and obey"

And while their crusty notions seem like jokes to us today,

They’re sitting in the Capitol, they’re voting on our lives

If we don’t stop them soon, our freedom will not long survive!  

Alt chorus:

No going back, back to the bad ole days...

When men were really masters and women were their slaves

let's go ahead, ahead for future centuries,

And build a world that’s based on true democracy

And build a world that’s based on true equality!

Ah – person!
