about

Being a woman does not feel the best a lot of the time.

lyrics

I'm told I'm being too bossy again
Sorry would you rather I hold your hand?
Cause I don't have time to be meek and shy
I need to get shit done

I'm asserting myself too much
But that's the only way to get what I want
Can't sit back and wait I need food on my plate
I gotta make my way

I don't know yet what it's like
To be respected day and night
My brain and my body are mine
But ask around and you will find
People claiming, for me, they know better
People voting to keep my pay lower
Girls so scared to say no, if they don't, we've been showed, risk being murdered
I am much more than my gender
We're all much more than our gender

Oh no I'm being a bitch again
Cause I don't want to play pretend
Like my feelings are void cause I'm not one of the boys
I gotta say what I feel

I have consensual sex all we want
And only shave when I feel like it, son
And I wear what I like
And I carry a pink stun gun

I don't know yet what it's like
To be respected day and night
My brain and my body are mine
But ask around and you will find
People claiming, for me, they know better
People voting to keep my pay lower
Girls so scared to say no, if they don't, we've been showed, risk being murdered
I am much more than my gender
We're all much more than our gender

Look I'm a boss I'm not bossy
I'm just asserting my autonomy
And if I am I bitch I'll mark my territory
On the patriarchy
