The Lyrics

A UK tv show featured a polemic against "feminisation" I missed it .. on vacation but it aroused a lot of negative feedback.. the speaker then retracted and said that he wasn't saying that women should be barefoot pregnant in the kitchen .. but there are some who do and this song is for them.."Men and Motors" is a macho TV show in the UKSh*gged is a synomyn for f*cked in Brit argot Nagging is Brit argot for what a complaining spouse does Shod means furnished with shoes The Guardian is a left wing newspaper The guys mentioned are well known right wing newspaper columnists
Dontcha hate women's lib
What a total disaster
We don't know how to live
They've forgotten who's master

All those glass ceilings they have smashed
Those male egos they have trashed
What they need is to be thrashed

What women want is men who'll keep them barefoot pregnant in the kitchen

Stop bending my ear
With all of your nagging
Get your ass over here
You need a good sh*gging

I think you like it rather rough
I'll tell you when you've had enough
Don't ask for that ..I don't do that stuff



What women want is men who'll keep them barefoot pregnant in the kitchen


You can take it from me
They don't want to be free
I think you'll agree


Well f*cked poorly shod and in the kitchen


Madonna or whore.. that was quite a good offer
If you let them have more it is you who will suffer


It's time you showed them who is boss
Cos their gain has been your loss
It ain't PC but.. who gives a toss?

Don't read the Guardian.. get into Littlejohn and Peter Hitchens


Well f*cked poorly shod and in the kitchen


You can take it from me
They really hate to be free
I think you'll agree

Well f*cked poorly shod and in the kitchen

Michael Buerk (he who did the news report that led to Live Aid) did a programme on similar matters called 'Don't Get Me Started!', that stirred up a lot of trouble too.

That's the one!

Having recently heard both Dame Shirley Bassey and MarthaDTox perform live, I find this song to be an entertaining combination of their talents. I particularly like the "smashed/thrashed/trased" and "boss/loss/toss" verses.
