It's about mansplaining
Released on Women's Equality Day


You can be condescending
Kinda gets on my nerves
You're so annoying
Such a stupid jerk

Don't tell me to smile
I can move just fine
Try to offer advice
Don't waste my time

I thought I told you
You could turn me on
Hold my hand
Keep me warm
I thought I told you
Not to patronize
Hold me back
Cut me right
Down to size
These are the rules boys

It can be so easy
If we got along
But you always have to be right
Even when you're wrong

Let me have this moment
Time to let me shine
No more playing nice
I'm taking back what's mine


Always Talking, Never listening
