There are women on the billboards and in commercials on TV
There are women selling products with their own bodies
Women selling beer, cigarettes and gum
Women looking shallow-minded and inherently dumb
Women selling cars, cosmetics and attire
Telling us to look good, this is what's required
There are women on the corners selling themselves upon the streets
Why are women so expected to sell their own sexuality?
There are women in magazines to tell us how to act
Manipulating us as children, telling us it's fact
There are women who have figured out to make a decent wage,
It's worth the humiliation of dancing on a stage.
Greedy eyes fixed on her, she has to hold a smile
cause she's single with two children and the pay makes it worth while...
They pay women for their sexuality, they know that it will sell
And some women see the money as an escape from their own hell
Both the sex industry and advertisors feed on desparation
preying on inequality, the accepted male/female relation
The more insecure the better, that's when we believe their lies
It's time to rethink and relearn, and open up our eyes.
