"Easy" as written by and Polly Jean Harvey....
Oyster pearl
You easy girls
You're flapping in, you're shouting
You're dead good, all the men say
Legs wide, hips swinging like a doorway


I'm ranting, I'm raving
I'm taking in just everything
You're giving me no leeway
I open once and you call me Devil's gateway


And I deserve it
I asked you for it
Have to admit it
We dress like tigers

And I deserve it

    General CommentI love PJ at her bitter best. This song is about how society calls girls who have sex "easy" even if it's just one time.

    My favorite part is the last part, where she says "And I deserve it, I have to admit it, I was asking for it." It's the typical internalization of society telling women "you had it coming," even if the woman was victimized. PJ Harvey is so astute in shredding societal attitudes while being catchy and clever.
