Now I'm all for peace and for fighting with words
But if you ain't gonna listen then you're gonna get burned
I am a non violent anti-petroleum man
with my non violent anti petroleum grans’
If you care to join in we'll sing it louder than most
you stay outta my rivers get the hell off my coast

Cause I ain't goin' nowhere

Now I've told you once and i'll tell you again
Sooner or later this is all gonna end
With you packing up your things, leaving this town
And all that'll be left will be your little holes in the ground
And I'll fill em' in it's the least I could do
Thinking I'll plant a couple cedars maybe a spruce or two

Cause I ain't goin nowhere

Now I've had enough of your inconsiderate ways
Your twisted words and all the slithery things that you say
So come down from your castle way up in the sky
Put your feet in the dirt and let’s look eye to eye
If you don't I'll build a ladder of all the grannies I've met
Come up and teach y'all a lesson you won't ever forget

I ain't going nowhere

The Raging Grannies are a radical choir of progressive grandmothers based on Salt Spring Island, BC, in Saanich and Cowichan Territory. They are a part of an international coalition of Raging Grannies who use catchy, politically themed songs to fight for peace and environmental justice. There are choirs of Raging Grannies all over the world, including Canada, USA, The UK, Australia, and New Zealand.

Building a better world requires intergenerational sharing and collaboration. Within the wisdom and experience of elders is an opportunity for young activists to learn and discover the mechanisms of change and justice. How can we build a better world without learning from past mistakes and successes?
