Songfacts®:

  • Here, Margo Price slates the difference between a man's and a woman's average remuneration.

    Pay gap, pay gap
    Why don't you do the math?
    Pay gap, pay gap
    Ripping my dollars in half


    Price explained to The Sun: "This song I've been passionate about the pay gap for years. A lot of people don't believe that it even exists and this song is for them. Most women in the US are getting 79 cents to every dollar a man makes. It's not set to close for another 100 years and I'll be long gone by then, but I want to be remembered as someone who fought for equality for all."
