Can't Hold Us Down (No pueden hundirnos)

Estaba perdiendo el tiempo viendo cosas en el youtube, cuando me ha dado por ponerme vídeos de Cristina Aguilera. Me he metido en el videoclip del tema Can´t Hold Us Sown, y nada más las primeras imágenes y escuchar las primeras notas, me he acordado perfectamente de que esta canción sonaba cuando yo tenía 13 o 14 añitos. Y recuerdo que en su día me gustaba bastante, tanto el tema como Cristina Aguilera.

Y ahora que he vuelto a escucharlo tras tanto tiempo, sigo teniendo la misma opinión. Un tema que aboga por el empoderamiento de las mujeres, por el disfrute de nuestra sexualidad como nos plaza, y que critica la doble moral y el acoso sexual.

So, what, am I not supposed to have an opinion?
Should I keep quiet just because I'm a woman?
Call me a bitch 'cause I speak what's on my mind
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled

When a female fires back,
Suddenly, big talker don't know how to act
So, he does what every little boy would do
Makin' up a few false rumors or two
That for sure is not a man to me,
Slanderin' names for popularity
It's sad you only get your fame through controversy
But now, it's time for me to come and give you more to say

This is for my girls all around the world
Who have come across a man that don't respect your worth
Thinkin' all women should be seen, not heard
So, what do we do, girls, shout out loud
Lettin' 'em know we're gonna stand our ground
So, lift your hands higher and wave 'em proud
Take a deep breath and say it loud
Never can, never will
Can't hold us down

Nobody can hold us down
Nobody can hold us down
Nobody can hold us down
Never can, never will

So, what, am I not supposed to say what I'm saying?
Are you offended with the message I'm bringin'?
Call me whatever 'cause your words don't mean a thing
Guess you ain't even a man enough to handle what I sing
If you look back in history, it's a common double standard of society
The guy gets all the glory, the more he can score
While the girl can do the same, and yet you call her a whore
I don't understand why it's okay
The guy can get away with it, the girl gets named
All my ladies come together and make a change
And start a new beginning for us, everybody sing


Here’s somethin I just cant understand
If a guy have 3 girls then he’s the man
He can even give her some head or sex her off
But the girl do the same then she’s a whore
But the table’s bout to turn, I bet my fame on it
Cats take my ideas and put they name on it
It’s aiight tho
You cant hold me down
I got to keep on movin
To all my girls with a man who be tryin ta mack
Do it right back to him and let that be that
You need to let him know that his game is wack
And lil kim and christina aguilera got your back

You're just a little boy
Think you're so cute, so coy
You must talk so big to make up for smaller things
You're just a little boy
All you do is annoy
You must talk so big to make up for smaller things


Can't hold us down!
