BackgroundEdit

The song was uploaded to her YouTube channel, with a clip of her in a brown wig and flipping off the camera in a loop. She posted on her Instagram story about the song saying:

β€œ I just got a mix of a song, I just don't want it to sit on my computer. So I kinda want to share it, just like upload it. I don't know where it's gonna go, what it's gonna be on. ”

She then proceeded to play a portion of the song before the end of the clip.[1]

LyricsEdit

You could ride a unicorn to school
And if you fall off you'd have healthcare
(No you don't!)
If you finish school you'd go to college for free
That makes sense and that's fair
(No it's not!)
If you were a lady
Then you own your lady parts
Just like a man goes to a dealership
And then he owns a car

Vroom vroom
Fuck you!

What if life as we knew it was over?
Guess what, God is a woman, I know her
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?

If you're from another land then come here
You won't have to climb a wall
(Yes you will!)
If you are a boy who loves a boy
You'll get a wedding cake and all
(Not in Colorado!)
If you are a lady and you do your lady work
Then you will make as many dollars as the boys
Not just two thirds

Cha ching
Fuck you!

What if life as we knew it was over?
Guess what, God is a woman, I know her
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wish the world was different
Where who you love and who you are
Was nobody's fucking business

What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?
What if rich, white, straight men
Didn't rule the world anymore?

What if...
