They say, "Money for nothing
And the chicks get it for free,"
Unfortunately for all working-men
It doesn't come that easily.

"Equal pay for equal work"
In theory, it sounds just fine,
But women spend the whole day talking
While workingmen must toe the line.

Unfortunately very few women
Ever do the equal work,
Some are lazy, even hazy
So all they do is shirk.

But with Big Sister watch over them
Most don't have to try to get the breaks,
It's not about skills, but your chest now
So for women, that's all it takes.

The Negative Action Gestapo
Says all the best jobs go to women,
And anything humiliating left
Can go to highly skilled men.

In this evil matriarchy
Says, "Equality is just for woman
In Australia, there's no other way!"

And so why men slave and work
Women slack off once again,
And the biggest chest gets promoted
Not the one with the biggest brain.

"Money for nothing," is what
Many women now seem to get,
The Bitch-Queen-Fuehrer
Cruelly smirks, without any regrets!
