Women Of The Working Class by The Lovely Wars

Dear Poptastic Readers,

Happy International Women's Day! And as a lovely treat, The Lovely Wars have released a short acapella track called "Women Of The Working Class." And you can download it for free! What a gift!



The Lovely Wars

Didn't The Lovely Wars call it quits? We thought so. Perhaps this was recorded before they split. Anyway, here is what their SoundCloud says about the song.



"Written by Mal Finch, Women of the Working Class was adopted as the anthem of the Women Against Pit Closures campaign during the miners strike of 1984/85."

Here it is ...





Here are the lyrics ...


We are women, we are strong, 
We are fighting for our lives 
Side by side with the men 
Who work the nation's mines, 
United by the struggle, 
United by the past, 
And it's — Here we go! Here we go! 
For the women of the working class.  

Thank you, The Lovely Wars! And thank you women around the world. We love you!

Cheers then,
—Davearama

P.S. Ain from The Lovely Wars has new music coming soon. We can't wait!
