Women Know Math

lyrics

my dress is muddy, my skin is bad
i’ll call you buddy, i sort of want to be a dad
i’m not curvy, and i’m not slim
i don’t wear makeup, at home, on planes, or at the gym

i’m not weak, and i’m not strong
i cry often, if you know the words then sing along
i am a woman, none of those things disqualify me
I hear a lot of voices saying I’m doing it wrong, but please just…try me

i like being a lady, and I don’t need
to be the picture of what someone thinks that means
though it might help you know just what to do with me
and you say in turn that would help me succeed — who cares

I crush on ladies, I crush on dudes
it is a sex crime, to hack someone and share their nudes
gender’s performance, it isn’t binary or real
if you don’t like that, i do not care you’ll have to deal

you gave us dolls and then you told us they were dumb
you told us we’d get hurt if we tried to have fun
you see the problem, women know math
you can’t tell us to do a thing, and then when we do it laugh

boys will be boys, is a disgrace
and though you tell me things are changing, I am not willing to wait
cause it’s a problem all around the world
every day people are punished just for being girls — no fair

I am a women, I’m doing it right / I am no matter what I do
I have pants and hair and dirt and I am not here to please you
I have goals and plans and dreams and I am not here to please you
I have talents strength and words and I am not here to please you
