about

This song is inspired by the Black feminist anthology "All the Women Are White, All the Black Are Men, But Some of Us Are Brave".

lyrics

When we talk about women
It’s White
When we talk about black
It’s Men
Where do I come in?

Disrespected, unprotected everyday
Erasing my existence coz it’s in the way
Fuck it’s been a long day.

But they’ll tell me I’m strong
So they can pile it on
Ya, they’ll call me queen
So I’ll ignore everything
Hey grrrl don’t cry
Hey grrrl don’t scream
Just do your part for the community

Suffocating invisibility
Where my riots
Them streets so quiet
x2

So I’m calling grrrls to the front
To get what they want
Rejecting the mule
Free myself from the pull
Hey grrrl go’on cry
Hey grrrl go’on scream
Just know that now it’s up to you and me

And it will crumble
Till you do right by us
Poetic Justice
x2
