Le Tigre, campagna pro Hillary Clinton con il brano I’m With Her

Le Tigre in sostegno di Hillary Clinton

Avevano promesso un rientro in edizione limitata ed è quanto si è verificato: la band dance-punk Le Tigre ha interrotto brevemente la sua lunga pausa per pubblicare un brano in sostegno della corsa di Hillary Clinton verso la Casa Bianca.

I’m With Her è la prima canzone pubblicata dal gruppo newyorchese dopo oltre dieci anni di inattività. Il video (disponibile su YouTube) è stato ideato e diretto da Laura Parnes e Tanya Selvaratnam nell’ambito dell’iniziativa Filmmakers for Hillary, «una coalizione di creativi impegnati a sostenere l’elezione di Hillary Clinton come Presidente degli Stati Uniti d’America, la cui missione è l’organizzazione di progetti per ispirare, persuadere e mobilitare gli elettori».

Di seguito il video ufficiale e il testo.

Testo I’m With Her

One, two, one, two, one, two, three
Who do we want? We want HRC!

[Verse 1]

She doesn’t bake cookies, doesn’t play much golf
And the whole world is watching her persistent cough
Pass the wicked witch a glass of water
Careful not to spill it, you might melt The Donald
She’s already done the math
And she’s ready with a plan
And she’s always got to work
Twice as hard as every man
Bye bye, bye bye . . . Trump has got to go!

[Chorus]

I’M WITH HER
TO THE TOP
SHE’S WITH US
WE WON’T STOP . . .
I want a problem solver, a true rock climber
Pantsuit-wearing herstorical first-timer
I want a listener, a negotiator
A legal scholar, supreme court nominator
We can’t, we can’t, we can’t we can’t, we can’t wait . . .

[Verse 2]

Trump thinks Putin is a “very strong leader”
Just like him, a fascist bottom feeder
Building a wall is his greatest vision
Bigotry colors his every decision
She’s already done the math
And she’s ready with a plan
And she’s always got to work
Twice as hard as every man
Bye bye, bye bye . . . Trump has got to go!

[Chorus 2]

I’M WITH HER. . .

[Background vocals]

Abortion is healthcare, it’s a human right
Policy homework ’til the morning light
NRA stands for murder and hate
Gun laws now! We can’t wait!
One, two, one, two, one, two, three
I don’t want a racist in the President’s seat
One, two, one, two, one, two, three
I don’t want a sexist, it’s 2016!
One, two, one, two, one, two, three
Who do we want? We want HRC!
