lyrics

Alright, this is a trigger warning.
We've got some SJWs in the house.
Here we go.

I’m a social justice warrior, that’s not a bad thing.
Here to educate you all about what’s happening.
Geek culture used to be just for the white men,
Then chicks and minorities wanted to be let in.

Now, the old nerds say, “stay away from me.
We just want princess Leia back in her brass bikini."
Try to intimidate the gays, and run ‘em out of town,
and refer to trans people by the wrong pronouns.

Us warriors must act, we gotta take a stand
I’m gonna bring the beat down to ‘em with this mic in my hand.
All the misogynists and bigots going to get wrecked hard.
Like they are all replicants, and I’m their Deckard.

I’m a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR,
fighting for equality.
Yeah, 'cause I’m a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR.
That’s why my beats are so quality.

Let me tell you all about my girl, Sarkeesian.
I’m gonna rap it to you, you won’t know what key I’m in.
She’s telling the truth, about the video games,
and the princesses and dead hookers put there to entertain.

The boys, they get annoyed she take away their toys.
Try to dox her and box her, but she don’t fall for their ploys.
She’s out the refrigerator, bring the smack-down on the haters,
Got no fear of gamer-gaters, hella good Ms. Pac-Man player.

She’s a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR.
You all better make some time for her.
‘cause she’s a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR
That’s why I’ve been making rhymes for her.

And let me tell you all about my boy, John Scalzi.
He’s a bad-ass mother-fracker, even though he’s going bald.
He’s the appointed leader of the omega males.
Larry Correia try to dis’ him but he always fails.

Cause Scalzi’s selling mad books, and he’s throwin’ jabs and hooks.
If you’re harassin’ or trashin’ he’ll show you some dirty looks.
He’s got his tweet cannon gunnin’, and the sad puppies are runnin’,
‘cause their racism he’s shunnin’, and now let’s show him some lovin’.

He’s a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR
You better watch out for his mallet.
Yeah, he’s a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR
He knows Vox Day ain’t got no talent.

I put out the call, “Warriors unite!”
They spread out across the world looking for dudes to fight.
Brianna Wu and Zoe Quinn took out Adam Baldwin
Becca Watson dropped an elevator on Richard Dawkins.

Joss Whedon and Wil Wheaton white knight for Felicia Day,
‘Cause she was too busy blastin’ some 4-channers away.
Neil Tyson’s on a spaceship with George Takei,
and they’re locking their phasers on some MRAs.

'Cause they're, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS
You better show them some respect.
Yeah, 'cause they’re all, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIORS
or you’ll know what to expect.

Fighting for social justice, is what superheroes do.
Just ask, Batman or Spiderman or Wonder Woman, too.
Superman fought for truth, justice, the American way.
Captain Planet saved the forests, plus I think he was gay.

Me, I’m on the internet, reading the blogs.
IRL, I don’t do much to support the cause.
I’m just a white guy rapping, I see the irony.
They gonna come up here go social justice warrior on me.

'Cause I’m not a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR
like MLK or Susan B.
I’m really not a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR
I just play one on TV.

But I wanna be a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR.
So keep showin’ me what to do,
So that I can be a, SOCIAL JUSTICE WARRIOR
Fighting for social justice with you.

Don’t hate the player hate the game developer.
Looking at you UbiSoft.

Justice.
