Wonder women

Action took place in 1968
We got the longest strike
In whole french history.
Outburst of free speech
Took on the streets.


Schools were burning
Students turning down
Future job offers
As work officers
And proles in anger
Steamed up the pressure


Ask for the impossible, be realistic ! be realistic !
Ask for the impossible, be realistic ! be realistic !


At Wonder factory
Women on the line
Lusted for life
'cos when you're sixteen
Spend your youth in chains
Is the worst of all pains.


Power was at bay
For three weeks running
When union leaders
called off the strike
Trading all our hopes
For a mere pay rise


Standing at the gate
Ignoring unions call
A girl was shouting
“I won't follow the pack
I will never go back to this fucking hole”


1999 life on the line
Don't hit headlines
But songs of slavery
Still remain the same
Remain the same


Ask for the impossible, be realistic ! be realistic !
Ask for the impossible, be realistic ! be realistic !


Ask for the impossible !
