I’M A WOMAN

INTRO
We Are The Majority Vote!
Not My President! Not My President!
Hey Hey, Ho Ho, Kavanaugh Has Got To Go!
Times Up! Times Up! Times Up! Times Up!
We Believe Survivors!
Donald Trump Is A Motherfucking Liar!
Black Live Matter! Black Lives Matter!
My Body, My Choice!
Yes We Can! Yes We Can!

Here’s to the ladies…the fair and the weak! Fair they are, we’ll all admit but who dares call them weak?
Our modern girls play as hard and with as much vitality and stamina as any man.
How do they do it? Where do they find all that energy?

VERSE 1
I can rock a mean rhyme and scream like a queen at the same time
Shoot my gift to a riff and persist to shift the paradigm
I can hold up my fist and demand equality for my kind
Stand in a line, march with a sign and give em a piece of my mind

CHORUS 1
Cause I'm a WOMAN yeah!
W-O-M-A-N (ay, yo)
I'll say it again!
(she was a force to be reckoned with)

VERSE 2
I can get pissed, resist and insist that you give me respect
Raise my voice pro-choice, protest, protect women’s rights and elect
I can rage and engage, advocate, it don't matter my age or my weight
Pick up the mic, like lightening I strike and win the whole goddamn debate

CHORUS 2
Cause I'm a WOMAN yeah!
W-O-M-A-N (ay, yo)
I'll say it again!
(she was a force to be reckoned with)

VERSE 3
I can be nasty but if you grab me by the "P" you'll get hit
I can be nice, do no harm but I take no shit
I can support my sisters white, brown and black
Speak truth to power, empower, the future is female and WE WON’T GO BACK!

CHORUS 2
Cause I'm a WOMAN yeah!
W-O-M-A-N (ay, yo)
I'll say it again!
Cause I'm a WOMAN yeah!
W-O-M-A-N (ay, yo)
I'll say it again!

"One career all females have in common...being a woman" - Bette Davis

VERSE 4
I’m a woman yeah I said it so let’s get to the point
Motherfuck the patriarchy cause I’m housin' the joint
A feminist in full effect…fully loaded with intellect
Not spitting bullshit or politically correct
I manifest to progress but I refuse to repent
Against conservative views, Fox News and what they represent
The racist, evangelical right with their rifles
Hypocritical pro-lifers always pushing their Bibles
Narcissistic sexist bigots, unfit and complicit
Chauvinistic, ill-equipped, ignorant and illicit
From Politicians to Christians, it’s so easy to notice
The anti-woman rhetoric from preachers to POTUS
Misogynistically vicious so we stay strong and persistent
And say…respect our existence or expect resistance!


OUTRO (John Waters & Iggy Pop)

JW: And she’s still mad.
IP: That’s a wonderful performance. Everytime you think she’s…it’s over now…
JW: She gets pissed again
IP: She’s back
JM: I know
IP: And it’s great. Her diction is very, very good. That’s not easy. You understand everything she has to say.
