‘Nevertheless She Persisted’ — Lyrics To A Pop-Rock Anti-Trump Protest Song

I just feel like writing song lyrics. None of the lyrics will ever be performed, but the Trump Administration spins off song titles at an alarming rate, so you get stuff like this. My vision for this would be a hard rocking pop rock song that maybe R.E.M. might perform.

Nevertheless She Persisted
lyrics by Shelton Bumgarner

please give credit if you produce or perform

Nevertheless she persisted
is the rallying cry across the land
the Man wants to bring us down
tell us what to do
but he won’t know what hit him when we’re through

there’s a new cop in town
we’re going to shut the clowns down
we’re going to persist until we get our way
shout it from the hills, without a doubt
the Senate floor is just a start
soon enough we’ll be in the streets
giving you a wink
but telling nothing sweet

nevertheless she persisted
nevertheless she persisted
nevertheless she persisted
is what we all say
now get out of our way

what can I say
what can I do
to get through to you
she persisted and so will we
we’ll keep at it until we get our way
nothing will stop us now
we’ll never get shut down

nevertheless she persisted
nevertheless she persisted
nevertheless she persisted
is what we all say
now get out of our way

[bridge]
wait and see
just wait and see what we do
you’ll have to flee
once we get our way
the streets will be ours
any day

now we’re ready to stand and fight
we don’t take any delight in our battle
but before it’s over you’ll shout and rattle
’cause we’re coming to take the power that is ours
now get out of our way
while we reach for the stars
