Short piece about empowerment and owning your own space. Inspired by a workshop particpant who was fed up with being patronised, it is a big hit with teenagers. The youngest singer that embraced this was less than 2 years old! It is a great protest march song too. It can be a great upbeat round with a gospel feel, or lead into a longer piece of music with multiple parts and lots of room for improvisation.


LISTEN to Song Sample



  • Gospel-type round / groove.  A 6-bar round sung forcefully and with attitude. 
  • Good for marches, large and small groups.
  • It lends itself to instrumentation with as much improvised  percussion and hand drumming, or just stamps and clicks. 
  • Once learned, feel free to change the key to suit your group.


Choir Notes (included)


  • Double-up soprano, alto, tenor and bass parts if wished.
  • From bar 18, an 8-bar groove can be built up starting with the bass part, then soprano 2 and alto 2 to establish a groove. 
  • Soprano 1 and tenor have alternative tune in unison, sung staccato. I like to do a small vocal flick on the 'I'.
  • Alto 1 brings the tune back in, but note this is a 6 bar melody so watch the entrance points. The group could be further broken down into a round again if you wish. 
  • Further improvised solos can be woven in or come to the fore, as parts drop out.
