Pay Gap

  • Honey I work so hard for my money
    And I leave my babies at home
    Breaking my back, trying to bring home a check
    And working my fingers to the bone
    But at the end of the day, it feels like a game
    One I was born to lose
    In this institution, a dead revolution is giving young women abuse

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

    It's not that I'm asking for more than I'm owed
    And I don't think I'm better than you
    They say that we live in the land of the free
    But sometimes that bell don't ring true

    It's been that way with no equal pay
    And I wanna know when it'll be fixed
    Women do work and get treated like slaves
    Since 1776

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

    No matter your religion, no matter your race
    No matter your orientation
    No matter your creed and no matter your taste
    And no matter your orientation

    We're all the same in the eyes of my God
    But in the eyes of rich white men
    I'm no more than a maid to be owned like a dog
    And a second class citizen

    Pay gap, pay gap
    Don't give me that feminism crap
    Pay gap, pay gap
    They're ripping my dollars in half Writer/s: Margo Price
