Lyrics

Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I wanna (ha) I wanna (ha) I wanna (ha) I wanna (ha)
I wanna really, really want a referendum!

Choice for our future, 8th in the past
If you want some trust from me, better make it fast
Now don’t go wasting, my precious time
Get an act together we could be just fine

Bridge
I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want
So tell me what you want, what you really, really want
I wanna (ha) I wanna (ha) I wanna (ha) I wanna (ha)
I wanna really, really want a referendum!

Chorus
If you wanna be An Taoiseach, you gotta give me my choice
Make it free, safe, legal, listen to our voice
If you wanna be An Taoiseach, be affirmative
Let us make our choices, cos that’s the way it is

Oh what you think about that
Now you know how we feel
Said we said yes three times, are you for real? (are you for real?)
So call it hasty, we’ve given you a try
We’ve been waiting ages to kiss the 8th goodbye

Bridge x 1
Chorus x 1

So it’s been the story since ‘83
You want trust from me, you gotta listen carefully
We got the 8th in place, how can you show your face?
We want it legal, safe and free, we don’t wanna
Travel overseas, doesn’t come for free, do it quickly
It’s my body, let me be!

Stop your slowing down and call a vote now!
Stop your slowing down and call a vote now!

Chorus x 1

If you wanna be An Taoiseach
You gotta, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta, you gotta
Repeal the 8th Amendment (Repeal, ‘peal, ‘peal)
Stop your slowing down and call a vote now!
Stop your slowing down and call a vote now!
Now! Now! Now! Now!

Stop your slowing down and call a vote now!
Stop your slowing down and repeal it now!

If you wanna be An Taoiseach!

Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ bout a referendum
Sounds, like it sista!
Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ bout a referendum
Sounds, like it mister!

Well we’re, waiting on our human rights
Crying at the failure of outdated legislation
Powerless
With our reproductive rights
All because
‘change in the constitution

Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ bout a referendum
Sounds, like it sista!

The people gonna rise up
And have their choice
The people gonna rise up
And take what’s theirs

Don’t you know we’re gonna
Vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote,
Vote, vote, vote, vote, vote, vote!
And we’re gonna
Win, win, win, win, win, win,
Win, win, win, win, win, win!

Cause finally the tables
Are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a referendum
(Don’t you know were gonna get somewhere)

Yes, finally the tables
Are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a referendum, oh yeah
Talkin’ bout a referendum, oh
Well we’re, waiting on our human rights
Crying at the failure of outdated legislation
Powerless
With our reproductive rights
All because
‘change in the constitution

Don’t you know
They’re talkin’ bout a referendum
Sounds, like it sista!

And finally the tables
Are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a referendum
(Can’t you see were really getting somewhere)
Yes finally the tables
Are starting to turn
Talkin’ bout a referendum, oh yeah
Talkin’ bout a referendum, oh yeah
Talkin’ bout a referendum, oh yeah

Just a small town girl
Livin’ in a lonely world
She took an early flight
To access health care

Just a city boy,
Girlfriend said she had no choice
She ordered pills online
Risking fourteen years

English clinic waiting room,
Woman says she’s Irish too
12 people make this trip each day
It goes on, and on, and on, and on

People waiting
Up and down the countryside
They’re marching, yearly
For their rights

Ninety nine people
Chosen just to stall the motion
Enda’s / Simon’s / Leo’s hiding from the fight

He helped her get abortion pills
Don’t have the funds to make the trip
Scared as hell, he’s with her through the night
Why’s this still a crime?

It’s their lives,
Let them choose
There’s medical reasons too
All this suffering has to end,
It’s gone on and on, and on, and on.

People waiting,
Up and down the countryside
They’re marching, yearly

Chosen just to stall the motion

Don’t stop, repealing
This country needs some healing
Treat us equal
Don’t stop repealing
This country needs some healing
Treat us equal
Don’t stop

Help! A referendum
Help! Call that referendum
Help! On the 8th Amendment
Help!

When we were younger, most too young to have a say
The 8th went in and it takes, our human rights away
And now the time has come and you can rest assured
Now you’ll find, a change of mind, so give us the choice

Help us yes you can, just call it now
And we don’t appreciate you slowing down
Help us keep our feet on Irish ground
Won’t you please, please help us?

And now their lives have changed, so many go each day
Their independence seems to vanish with the 8th
But there’s a way for you to make us feel secure
You know that you, you need to do, what you’ve never done before

Help us yes you can, just call it now
And we don’t appreciate you slowing down
Help us keep our feet on Irish ground
Won’t you please, please help us?

You had plenty reason 1992
But you let a girl suffer and still women do
Why don’t you do rights, like other governments do?
Repeal the eighth, we want autonomy too

See back in ’83 most were too young too vote
And that’s why you’re still sending us away on the boat
Why don’t you do rights, like other governments do?
Repeal the eighth, we want autonomy too

Well I fell for your promises and voted you in
Now all you got to offer is
14 in prison
Why don’t you do rights, like other governments do?
Repeal the eighth, we want autonomy too

**Interjection**
Repeal the eighth, we want autonomy too

Now you’re sittin’ down and wonderin’ what it’s all about
While a Citizens Assembly tries to sort it out
Why don’t you do rights, like other governments do?
Repeal the eighth, we want autonomy too

I said Repeal the 8th
We are autonomous
F*** YOU!!!

Thirty-four years and we are still
Trying to get you, to repeal, the 8th
From the constitution
You know it’s the right thing and you know you should
Respect the choice of the sisterhood, oh man
Call a referendum

And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying in bed
Thinking about the 8th
And the pain it spreads
And I, I am feeling incredibly angry

And so they wake in the morning
And they say goodbye
And they take a deep breath and they get on a flight
And we scream from the top of our lungs
What’s going on?

And I say, hey, hey, hey, hey,
I said hey, repeal the 8th (x2)

And we try, oh my god do we try
We try all the time
To change the constitution
And we fight, oh my God do we fight
We fight every single day
For a referendum

And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying in bed
Thinking about the 8th
And the pain it spreads
And I, I am feeling incredibly angry

And so they wake in the morning
And they say goodbye
And they take a deep breath and they get on a flight
And we scream from the top of our lungs
What’s going on?

And I say, hey, hey, hey, hey
I said hey, repeal the 8th (+Counter Melody)

Thirty-four years and we are still
Trying to get you to repeal, the 8th
From the constitution

The laws don’t need to change
Just put them on a plane
That’s what people say, mmm-mmm
That’s what people say, mmm-mmm

They’ll have abortions late
They’re too angry anyway
At least that’s what people say, mmm-hmm
That’s what people say, mmm-hmm

But we got this movement
Constitutional improvement
And we have a message
Clear and loud
Repeal the amendment now!

Cause the women shouldn’t wait, wait, wait, wait, wait
Over thirty years too late, late, late, late, late
It’s not up for debate, eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
So take it out, take it out!

It’s time to set a date, date, date, date, date
Let women choose their fate, fate, fate, fate, fate
Come on repeal the eighth, eighth, eighth, eighth, eighth
So take it out, take it out!

We’re voting with our feet
People marching in the streets
They pretend that they don’t see, mmm-hmmm
That’s what they don’t see, mmm-hmmm

We want choices of our own
Free, safe, legal here at home
But they don’t like our tone, mmm-hmmm
They don’t like our tone, mmm-hmmm

But we got this movement
Constitutional improvement
And we have a message
Clear and loud
Repeal the amendment now!

‘Cos the women shouldn’t wait, wait, wait, wait,wait

Just a small town girl
Livin’ in a lonely world
She took an early flight
To access health care

Just a city boy,

She ordered pills online
Risking fourteen years

And we’ll really shake them up
When they count the votes up
Cause Ireland is a prochoice country

Put ‘em under pressure
It’s not gonna be easy for us
But It’s not gonna be easy for them either
We insist on choice for the people
Put ‘em under pressure
We’ve got to vote, we’ve got to vote
We’ve got to vote to win
Put ‘em under pressure

Repeal, repeal, repeal, repeal. Repeal Repeal
Repeal, repeal, repeal, repeal. Repeal Repeal

We’re all part of Prochoice fam’ly
We’re all gonna vote for choice
And we’ll really shake them up
When they count the votes up
Cause Ireland is a prochoice country
Put ‘em under pressure

We’re all part of Prochoice fam’ly
We’re all gonna vote for choice
And we’ll really shake them up
When they count the votes up
Cause Ireland is a prochoice country

The laws don’t need to change
Just put them on a plane
That’s what people say, mmm-mmm
That’s what people say, mmm-mmm

They’ll have abortions late
They’re too angry anyway
At least that’s what people say, mmm-hmm
That’s what people say, mmm-hmm

But we got this movement
Constitutional improvement
And we have a message
Clear and loud
Repeal the amendment now!

Cause the women shouldn’t wait, wait, wait, wait, wait
Over thirty years too late, late, late, late, late
It’s not up for debate, eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
So take it out, take it out!

It’s time to set a date, date, date, date, date
Let women choose their fate, fate, fate, fate, fate
Come on repeal the eighth, eighth, eighth, eighth, eighth
So take it out, take it out!

We’re voting with our feet
People marching in the streets
They pretend that they don’t see, mmm-hmmm
That’s what they don’t see, mmm-hmmm

We want choices of our own
Free, safe, legal here at home
But they don’t like our tone, mmm-hmmm
They don’t like our tone, mmm-hmmm

But we got this movement
Constitutional improvement
And we have a message
Clear and loud
Repeal the amendment now!

‘Cos the women shouldn’t wait, wait, wait, wait,wait
Over thirty years too late, late, late, late, late
It’s not up for debate, eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
So take it out, take it out!

It’s time to set a date, date, date, date, date
Let women choose their fate, fate, fate, fate, fate
Come on repeal the eighth, eighth, eighth, eighth, eighth
So take it out, take it out!

We’ll take it out, take it out
We’ll take it out, take it out
We’ll take it out, take it out
We’ll take it out, take it out
