Hey Academy, I’m a Woman.

I can look at forty-four takes, analyze a
script and find locations too I can organize the day and find my shot and
light the damn thing like you never knew I can look at final cut and take out those
scenes and splice and reorder again I wrote this song right here How can she do it when she ain’t a man? I’m just a woman! W-O-M-A-N Please, say it again. There’s a long history of ladies makin’
films before you and me Barbra and Nora and Alice, and Penny and
Diablo Cody Kathryn and Nancy and Reed and Ellen and Ava
just to name a few But wait what’s going on, they got ladyparts
and wear high heel shoes But she’s just WOMAN W-O-M-A-N Who don’t deserve awards W-O-M-A-N We’ll try to ‘splain it again. Now, let’s look at the numbers that make
up this very very sad tale. The Academy is 93 percent white and 76 percent
male They tell me that women aren’t worth the
nominations and there’s nothing I can do But my tiny lady brain tells me that I’m
gonna do it and go fuck you. ‘Cause I’m a woman! (scatting) ‘Cause I’m a woman! W-O-M-A-N WOMAN!
