I'm not selling cheap
You have to pay me
One dollar for every 62 cents
Someone with testicles makes
I'm not selling cheap
Fuck you, you have to pay me
You can burn me like a witch
You can call me a bitch
But you have to pay me one dollar for every 62 cents
That anyone with testicles makes

    General Comment"But you have to pay me one dollar for every 62 cents/That anyone with testicles makes". I think this song is about being a woman and wanting to get paid equally to a man, or something.

    General CommentA woman got payed, on average, 62 cents for every dollar a man made. She's saying, burn me like a witch, call me a bitch, but you have to pay me a dollar for every 62 cents HE makes. She's reclaiming it.

    General CommentHa, I love this. All Courtney Love did was behave like every other grunge rocker out there and yet she is called all these horrible names. There's obviously a reference to equal pay in there (and we're at like 77 cent to a dollar right now, just so you know) but it's not really about money. Courtney Love makes plenty of money, I'm sure (although it probably was very hard to break into the music scene as a female rock artist). It's what money stands for; power, wealth, self-worth. She's saying, fine call me whatever you want, but I'm still earning more than the average man.
