Topic: It's My Right

I know it's a funny title but the content is serious. Ann preaches at me every time a man is giving a hard time to a woman on TV. And if rape is involved she gets many times worse or child abuse. This song deals with a man who believes he has the right to use, abuse and rape any woman he wants and no law or social convention will condemn him for it. Having said all that, I know it's a delicate subject, and I've written it from this perverts perspective, I want to add that I am not this man and i have NEVER taken advantage of anyone sexually or physically. After that I hope you enjoy the song and leave comments.

It's My Right.Undefined


[A] Full moon rising, light up the night.


A [Dbm] good night for romance. But she's teasing me, that's alright.


She [F#m] wants me just as much as [D] I want her.


But she's [E] playing hard to get, just like a girl.




[A] I've seen her type before, plays hard to get.


She [Dbm] doesn't realize the kind of guy she's met.


[F#m] NO! is not an option. She'll [D] do like I say.


We're [E] gonna be together baby, any way.




(CHORUS)




So [D] lay back and love it. Or [E] lay back and cry.


[F#m] Tomorrow tell your daddy that you [D] wish you could die.


You were [Bm] never my first victim. And you [E] wont be my last.


You [Dbm] wont have to thank me for [D] doing it fast.


It's my [A] right. [F#m] It's my [A] right.




[A] Everybody loves a little give and take.


[Dbm] You will give it sugar. Cos I only take.


If you [F#m] go back in history. The [D] man has the right.


[E] Don't call the cops. It's your word against mine.



[A] I can be a politician or a business tycoon.


I can [Dbm] buy my way out of any bad press you do.


It [F#m] doesn't matter if you're only [D] 13 next year.


I [E] can buy your silence. So dry up your tears.


(CHORUS)






[F#m] I can take what I want. I can [A] do as I please.


You're [D] only a woman. So you can [E] get on your knees.


It's my [A] right. [F#m] It's my [A] right.


(SOLO OVER VERSE)




It's my [A] right. [F#m] It's my [A] right.




(CHORUS)




It's my [A] right. [F#m] It's my [A] right.

Re: It's My Right

Phill that describes those perfectly, who blame the girl for their own evil predatory actions that can  leave a woman traumatized for life. Strong writting and I am sure it covers what happens with many unreported sexual assaults and rapes.

Re: It's My Right

Hi Peatle, I know several women that have gone through such an ordeal and men/boys. There was one I'd known since he was a kid that turned out to be a paedofile when he was finally outed he was in his 40s and been abusing boys, girls and women since he was 15. Rather than face jail he hung himself...no pity from me. If there's a hell I hope he's there!     

Ask not what Chordie can do for you, but what you can do for Chordie.

Re: It's My Right

Found this very hard to read through, Phill ... I know the subject isn't you, but the perspective is, well, disturbing.

Re: It's My Right

Agreed but it had to come out. I'm trying to put only serious songs on Chordie as I do a lot of love songs that go straight to CD and get forgotten (by me) LOL
It's meant to be disturbing and hard to read so the message comes through.

Mission accomplished, Phill ... my comments weren't at all a criticism, but truly a compliment at how accurately you seem to have gotten into the mind of a monster like this. Maybe you have a future as an MI-6 profiler?
