Pay Gap — Margo Price

Pay Gap -- Margot Price

Honey, I work so hard for my money
And I leave my babies at home
Breaking my back
Trying to bring home a check
Working my fingers to the bone
That the end of the day feels like a game
One I was born to lose
In this institution and dead revolution
It’s given young women abuse

Pay gap
Pay gap
Why don’t you do the math
Pay gap
Pay gap
Rippin’ 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 will be fixed
Women do work
And get treated like slaves since 1776

Pay gap
Pay gap
Don’t give me that feminism crap
Pay gap
Pay gap
Rippin’ 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
No matter your denomination
We’re all the same in the eyes of God
But in the eyes of rich white men
You’re no more than a maid
To be owned like a dog
Second-class citizen

Pay gap
Pay gap
Why don’t you do the math
Pay gap
Pay gap
Rippin’ my dollars in half
