The song

Hot topic is the way that we rhyme
Hot topic is the way that we rhyme
One step behind the drum style
One step behind the drum style

Carol Rama and Eleanor Antin
Yoko Ono and Carolee Schneeman
You’re getting old, that’s what they’ll say, but
Don’t give a damn I’m listening anyway

Stop, don’t you stop
I can’t live if you stop
Don’t you stop

Gretchen Phillips and Cibo Matto
Leslie Feinberg and Faith Ringgold
Mr. Lady, Laura Cottingham
Mab Segrest and The Butchies, man

Don’t stop
Don’t you stop
We won’t stop
Don’t you stop

So many roads and so much opinion
So much bullshit to give in to
So many rules and so much opinion
So much bullshit but we won’t give in

Stop, we won’t stop
Don’t you stop
I can’t live if you stop

Tammy Rae Carland and Sleater-Kinney
Vivienne Dick and Lorraine O’Grady
Gayatri Spivak and Angela Davis
Laurie Weeks and Dorothy Allison

Stop, don’t you stop
Please don’t stop
We won’t stop
