Nellie McKay, Mother of Pearl

My new favorite song.

Wish there were better videos out there, but these'll do for now.

This one is from far away, lousy audio, but it's the whole song:

Dance Break!

This one is better video & audio, but starts mid-song, and is for some reason turned sideways:

And here are the lyrics:

"Mother Of Pearl"

Feminists don't have a sense of humor
Feminists just want to be alone (boo-hoo)
Feminists spread vicious lies and rumor
They have a tumor on their funny bone

They say child molestation isn't funny
Rape and degradation's just a crime (lighten up, ladies)
Rampant prostitution, sex for money (what's wrong with that)
Can't these chicks do anything but whine

Dance break
(Take it off)

They say cheap objectification isn't witty, it's hot
Equal work and wages worth the fight (sing us a new one)
On demand abortion, every city (okay, but no gun control)
Won't these women ever get a life

Feminists don't have a sense of humor (poor Hilary)
Feminists and vegetarians
Feminists spread vicious lies and rumor
They're far too sensitive to ever be a ham
That's why these feminists just need to find a man

I'm Dennis Kucinich, and I approve this message


You have to imagine a male chorus singing the responses in parentheses, as in the CD version.
