Speaking ill of the dead

Don't let her go silent

Into that good night

Don't lay down your swords

And give up the fight

Don't listen to the counsel

Not to speak ill of the dead

Bang on the doors and

Demand Maggie's head

Don't tell me she was

A feminist icon

Don't claim a respect

For simple endurance

Don't cover it up

The ill she has done

Her cadaver is guilty

And it should be hung

Don't honour her strength

Or give life to that lie

Don't decide now

Is the time to comply

Don't let a compassion

Let this moment slink by

Now is the time

To take an eye for an eye

Don't let history be rewritten

Lest we forget

Don't think of the twins

For they don't regret

Don't listen to the counsel

Not to speak ill of the dead

Bang on the doors and

Demand Maggie's head

Yes, bang on the doors and

Demand Maggie's head

Let the world know that

We're glad that she's dead
