Shame Ole Story? Not n’y More.

“You got raped

You knew you would

All dressed up like Riding Hood

Trottin’ along with that perky walk

Pretendin’ you don’t wanna talk

Of course you don’t; it’s sex you’re after

So please excuse my ribald laughter

As you pretend to fight and scream

Cause I know what you really mean

You want me and you want me bad

I’ll be the best fuck you’ve ever had

I’ll be the one you won’t forget

You sneaky slut; you’ll be my pet

Now shut up, bitch; that screamin’ stops

And when you go running to the cops

With your ‘story’ and your tears

They’ll know that you was askin’ for it

They’ll see that bright and clear

They’ll know that you’re the one to blame

And sweetie, you deserve the shame”

That is the story… it’s always been

Don’t let those bastards take you in

They used you and abused you

Maybe scared you half to death

But you’re the hero of this story

Stop a moment; take a breath

Allow the fear to coalesce

Into a call for action

Learn or do what you need to be YOU

And get you some satisfaction

The world’s tried to pin shame on women

For actions committed by men

Your fairy tale is over boys,

’Cause once-upon-a-time was then.
