For every dollar a man makes
It'll be the year 3,888 before we make a buck
I just want to say something.
You know, for every dollar a man makes
a woman makes 63 cents.
Now, fifty years ago that was 62 cents.
So, with that kind of luck, it'll be the year 3,888 before we make a buck.
But hey, girl, we can take it.
And if we can't
we're gonna fake it.
