Old White Dudes Are LIVID Over This Grimes Parody

Years ago I told the internet I could alter the lyrics for "Kill V. Maim" by Grimes to make the song a political anthem about Roe v. Wade. Well I finished it. I just needed enough time. I wrote this a few years ago, some of it is from the point of view of a baby experiencing the aftermath of the Roe v. Wade ruling being overturned. At least, I think so. I'm not very informed about this stuff. The lyrics are structured as they appear on genius.com. Below is the video so you can follow along. The music video is visually engaging, but you need to focus on the audio for right now. I left enough space for advertisements to appear throughout, Mr. Odyssey.

Grimes - Kill V. Maimwww.youtube.com


[Verse 1]

I think I see a light, time to leave the hole

I hope the outside world isn't too cold

Cause I'm only a baby, and I'm inside a lady


Wait a second I don't like this

Nobody's feeding me

Maybe it's because they weren't ready for me?

Some Republicans are cruel

And they say abortion is too


[Pre-Chorus 1]

G-O-P dudes claim to help humanity

But when we asked for help you pretend Christianity

G-O-P please practice what you preach

Your acts betray the bulk of your non-secular beliefs


[Chorus 1]

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade oh eh

Why'd you overturn it, why'd you make me write this down?


Cause I'm only a baby, now outside a lady, oh

Cause I'm feeling sad now, Pence is glad now

(Why'd you overturn it, why'd you make me write this down?)


[Verse 2]

Help me clear this up, I don't understand,

If every life is sacred why not lend a hand?

Because that would be nice

But Republicans be like


[Pre-Chorus 2]

"I hate my life, let me make you miserable

Force my greedy rhetoric and make it sound political

My tax money should be used for good

Help the rich pay even less, defund planned parenthood"


[Chorus 2]

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade oh eh

I do not know enough about the topics which I write


But I know just one thing, it's disgusting, oh

Pro-lifers are old dudes, who want to control you

(I do not know enough about the topics which I write)


[Bridge]

Oh, abortion is the right

To prevent unplanned pregnancies

Safely at the state level

Roe, V. Wade was alright

But you overturned it

What was the purpose?

How do you sleep at night?


[Chorus 3]

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade, oh

Eh, it's Roe V. Wade, it's Roe V. Wade oh eh

Abortions are still legal, but just not in every state


If we had better healthcare, wait I won't go there, oh

Medicaid will not provide, thanks to Henry Hyde


[Outro]

My P-O-V was at first a baby

It was hard to do because I'm not a baby

A-B-O-R-T-I-O-N-S

S-H-O-U-L-D B-E L-E-G-A-L!

(BOOORN!)

In conclusion, this is what "Kill V. Maim" might sound like if it were about Roe v Wade. Some syllables are an exact match, others are exercising their own free will. It makes sense to me in the shower. Show this to one of your college professors, they might appreciate it. Tell them you wrote it and snag some extra credit, but feel them out first to see if they hate abortions.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
