What the lyrics to “All About That Bass” should have been

11 Aug

Like a lot of fat girls, I’m disappointed by Meghan Trainor’s summer hit “All About That Bass.” Jenny Trout has a fantastic deconstruction of how much better this song could have been. It could have been the anthem of the body acceptance movement, but it fell flat. So I decided to fix it:

 

Because you know
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love

Yeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I still shake it, shake it
Because I choose to
Cause I got a boom boom that is a joy to me
And I feel comfortable in my own body

I see the magazines, workin’ that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real
C’mon now, make it stop
If you got a body body, just raise ’em up
Cause every inch of you is perfect
From the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says your worth isn’t measured with someone else’s eyes
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
And I won’t ever be sorry for giving this life my all

Because you know I’m
All about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love
Hey!

I’m bringing booty back
Go ahead and tell them sizeist jerks that
But whether you’re a skinny rail or super mega fat
Hey I’m here to tell ya
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me don’t worry about your size
She says your worth isn’t measured with someone else’s eyes
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
And I won’t ever be sorry for giving this life my all

Because you know I’m
All about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love

Because you know I’m
All about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love

Because you know I’m
All about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love, no hatred
I’m all about self love
‘Bout self love
‘Bout self love, ’bout self love
Hey, hey, ooh
Because I like this body
