lyrics

Backbone
Written and performed by G'Ra Asim, Rhiana Hernandez, Jake Lazaroff and Joey Grabmeier

We got a little bit
Of Beatrice and Benedick lately
But the opposite
Is a real and legitimate maybe

I wish she’d
Burn some sage
So I could
Read her palm
I’ve got to
Crash that wave
She's always
Coasting on

Jiji, doll, you're jamming
How you overwhelm
My wherewithal, you gamine
From a classic film
And I won't waste another
Moment on each other’s
Sticks and stones
‘Cause baby’s got backbone

She gets a bad rap
‘Cause she couldn't do a clap back better
I'm a mad cap
That she wouldn't take a stab at ever

But I don’t
Buy it, girl
I'm keeping the receipt
You're such a
Riot grrrl
So come disturb my peace

Jiji, doll, you're jamming
How you overwhelm
My wherewithal, you gamine
From a classic film
And I won't waste another
Moment on each other’s
Sticks and stones
‘Cause baby’s got backbone

Your anaconda won't
Be welcome
She’ll put your shit in a
Full Nelson

Oh my god, Jiji, I cannot front
Oh my god, Jiji, you’re what I want
