[Verse]
G
Oh
D
They took and skinned my name
Em
Try to raise the feeling
C
I saw right through, tried to love them
G
They threw it in your face, tell you what you're feeling
D
How could they know?
Em
It's what they read
C
So when you see her cry, you always knew

It's how we could all by ourselves

G
I will show you a 26 year old woman
D
who learned to dance until she felt pretty
Em
Feminism wears a throwback jersey,
C
bamboo earrings, and a face beat for the gods
G
Feminism is Missy, Lil Kim,
D
and Angie Martinez on the ?Not Tonight? track
Em
Feminism says as a woman in my arena you are not my competition
C
As a woman in my arena your light doesn?t make mine any dimmer
G
Dear Missy:
D
I did not grow up to be you
Em
But I did grow up to be me
C
And to be in love with who this woman is
G
To be a woman playing a man?s game
D
And not be apologetic about any of it
Em
If you ask me why representation is important
C
I will tell you that on the days I don?t feel pretty
G
I hear the sweet voice of Missy singing to me
D
Pop that pop that, jiggle that fat
Em
Don?t stop, get it til your clothes get wet
C
I will tell you that right now there are a million black girls

just waiting to see someone who looks like them


Keep Rocking!
