Women is losers
Women is losers, oh
Say honey women is losers.
Well, I know you must try, Lord,
And everywhere
Men almost seem to end up on top.

Oh, if they told you they want you
Say come around by your door.
Whoa I say now, if they don’t desert you,
They’ll leave you and never be here for more.
Oh yeah!

Women is losers
Women is losers
Women is losers, Lord, Lord, Lord!!!
So now I know you must-a know,
Lord, it’s true,
Men always seem to end up on top.

They wear a nice shiny armor
Until there is a dragon for to slay.
Any day now,
Course with men beggin’ to pay ‘em
Then they’ll turn and run away, oh!

Women is losers
Women is losers
Women is losers, Lord, Lord, Lord, Lord!!!
So I know you must-a know, Lord,
Anywhere
Men almost seem to end up on top, oh!

    General CommentJoplin based the grammar and general idea of the song on a song called “Whores is Funky”, which she heard while barhopping when she was younger. I don't think she meant for it to be taken very seriously. I don't think she even related to most women. She mostly hung out with guys and lead a lifestyle that didn't fit into her childhood ideal of womanhood.

    "I don't think she meant for it to be taken very seriously. I don't think she even related to most women. She mostly hung out with guys and lead a lifestyle that didn't fit into her childhood ideal of womanhood."

    Did the fact that she led a lifestyle that didn't fit into her childhood ideal of womanhood not tip you off to the obvious feminist viewpoint of this song? It's not something to be taken likely, and she obviously relates a bit more to women (and thir oppression) than you're capable of realizing.
