LYRICS

[JO] I got one gig, two gigs, three when I need them
I got five crew members on this one film set but I can’t really feed them
And we all came with stories trying to get a crumb of representation
But now the gatekeepers are acting like they don’t have time to greet us
But boys, we’re brave
Making our waves
Don’t think we didn’t notice your male gaze disguised as praise
We’re not dummies
Here’s something funny
You can be sensitive without risking your lives
Put decency before your box office highs
All you gotta do is see the world through our eyes

[ALL] Hollywood, our work isn’t done

[BPQ] They give our punchlines to our costars
Baby girl, it’s hard times
When you can’t get far
Producers feed the belly of the beast
With more Avengers, slick ventures
Token woman sent on every adventure
Nuh uh, this is it though
We know we still deserve more
It’s a whole awakening
This Old Boy’s Club is done for
Amber Heard will get her justice
Parker’s birth we stilled with uproar
Casey Affleck you’re next
Time you witness what we stand for
March a mile in our shoes
Heels or boots on carpet floors
We’ve been paying our dues, y’all ain’t been working like we do
We’ll outwork you, it hurts you
You claim we’ve no experience
Peter Piper pay the contracts, you can’t write off our existence
The wage gap’s days are numbered with the rise of our resistance
We’re Hollywood’s ghost writers, the credit will be given
It’s a matter of time before the checks all come

[ALL] Hollywood, our work isn’t done

[RACHEL] FYI, actresses got not a third
Of the words in all of the scripts you’ve heard
And what about in the room where it occurs?
Hell, ’98 gave us more work as directors
But your patriarchy and your white supremacy
Will only fuel new dreams
We’ll break rules, produce breakthroughs on screen
Uncover Hidden Figures, Duvernay’s 13th
As we cut our teeth on the Edge of Seventeen
Think it weird or it don’t look good
Too late Kate McKinnon’s busted your brotherhood
Reparations for what we endured, cuz we could
We’re taking over just like we said we would

[JO] Moana, look back and see how far we’ve come
All the ceilings that we’ve overrun
With stories that belong to everyone

[ALL] Hollywood, our work isn’t done

  1. The video sounds like she is trying to bully! She didn't do accurated researches! Pfffft! It fails!
