Ain't No Shopping Us Now!



Glasgow's shop keepers get behind next week's strike for equal pay - the first if its kind in the history of Scottish local government.



  

Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now!



A regular reader has suggested 'Ain't No Stopping' Us Now' as a song to inspire Glasgow's equal pay claimants in the days ahead.

McFadden and Whitehead had a big hit with this song back in 1979 and the lyrics tell the tale of people succeeding and overcoming life's challenges.


Ain't No Stoppin Us Now


Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We've got the groove!

There's been so many things that's held us down
But now it looks like things are finally comin' around
I know we've got, a long long way to go
And where we'll end up, I don't know

But we won't let nothin' hold us back
We're putting our selves together
We're polishing up our act!
If you felt we've been held down before

I know you'll refuse to be held down anymore!
Don't you let nothing, nothing
Stand in your way!
I want ya'll to listen, listen

To every word I say, every word I say!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!

We've got the groove!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!
We're on the move!
Ain't No Stoppin Us Now!

We've got the groove!
I know…
