Hard Out Here

13 Nov

I must admit that most of the time I live under a rock, navel gazing and trying to block out the insanity of the world, but if I’ve seen that ridiculous Miley Cyrus video, you would think I’d have heard of Lily Allen, right? Not so. This crossed my Facebook feed today and I can’t help but share it here today because it’s so damned clever with its mockery of Pop Culture.

“Hard Out Here” by Lily Allen lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I suppose I should tell you what this bitch is thinkin’
You’ll find me in the studio, and not in the kitchen
I won’t be braggin’ ’bout my cars, or talkin’ ’bout my chains
Don’t need to shake my ass for you ‘cuz I got a brain
If I told you ’bout my sex life, you’d call me a slut
When boys be talkin’ ’bout their bitches no one’s making a fuss
There’s a glass ceiling to break, uh huh there’s money to make
And now it’s time to speed it up ‘cuz I can’t move at this pace

Sometimes it’s hard to find the words to say
I’ll go ahead and say them anyway
Forget your balls and grow a pair of tits
It’s hard, it’s hard, it’s hard out here for a bitch
It’s hard (for a bitch, for a bitch)
For a bitch, it’s hard
It’s hard out here for a bitch

[Verse 2]
You’re not a size 6, and you’re not good looking
Well you better be rich, or be real good at cooking
You should probably lose some weight, ‘cuz we can’t see your bones
You should probably fix your face, or you’ll end up on your own
Don’t you want to have somebody who objectifies you?
Have you thought about your butt, who’s gonna tear it in two?
We’ve never had it so good, uh huh we’re out of the woods
And if you can’t detect the sarcasm you’ve misunderstood


A bitch, a bitch, bitch bitch bitch bitch

Inequality promises that its here to stay
Always trust the injustice ‘cuz it’s not going away

    I LOVE Lilly Allen and have done for years. She is so awesome, but not all of her lyrics are child friendly, so I often have to wait for those rare alone car trips to really crank it.

    Oh my gosh Sofia, I love her! You should take a listen to her older songs like “Smile” and “Shame for you”. I think you’d get a kick out of them. Hope you’re feeling better.

      I’ve been listening on YouTube. How did I miss her? The silly pop sounds with the biting lyrics – love it!
