The Lyrics

Right, I'm getting tired of all you progressive types who think Miley Cyrus swinging naked on wrecking ball is empowering to women, or the fact that Beyoncé has a big sign saying "FEMINISM" justifies having her fanny out. Because it's not. And this is coming from a man. A man who knows that sex didn't sell for many years, so why does it sell know. Because bigoted septuagenarians in suits tell you it's empowering to women. Screw, all ya'll. In the form of a song. Right, after that rant, it's time for a parody. Just sitting in a creek with my banjo, anticipating the 90 minutes it will take for me to become a Hollywood star. Yeah.
Why are there so many songs about twerking,
And girls shaking their backsides,
Twerking is shallow, it's such a huge turnoff,
And twerking leaves nothing to hide,
Heard it's empowering but I don't believe it,
I think it's so degrading,
They all just do it to give men erections,
But I know it's not working on me;

Who said that dressing up like a common hooker,
Exposes your feminine side,
Executives thought it, the label believes it,
Now actual musicians must hide,
What's so amazing 'bout ladies in braziers,
That's something I hate to see,
The labels just do it to give men erections,
I know it's not working on me,
All the porn on MTV,
We know that it's killing the music;

Label executives abusing their power,
They like to treat women the same,
Is this what really is propelling the engines,
Of feminism today,
I've seen it too many times to ignore it,
It's sexist objectifying,
The labels just do it to give men erections,
I know it's not working on me,

Hey, watch Shakira and Beyonce in "Beautiful Liar " where Beyonce learns some of Shakira's Lebanese belly dancing moves while also grinding! Shakira is Columbian amd Lebanese if you didn't know. 555 for the parody...

That would explain the name "Shakira" for sure. If I had ever given this Shakira girl so much as a first thought, I might have wondered how a Hispanic looking kid came to have an Arabic name. So I'm "grateful" to you for straightening that out, Rob ;-D ...... In case you're wondering about the smiley face -- "shakir/shakira" is Arabic for grateful
