Text

This is "The House" that man built,
And these are the Members who've been sitting late
Coming out arm in arm, from a lengthy debate,
Women and men 'neath the shade of Big Ben
In the Year - well we cannot exactly say when;
But the brave Suffragette very shortly must get,
Into "The House" that man built.
