    We all know the iconic song opening, "I come home, in the morning light, my mother says..."


    Only this time mom asks a more relevant question: "Why don't you make the same as a guy?"

    James Corden joins Cyndi with a message for the guys:



    ♫ ’Cause girls, they want equal funds. ♫


    Seriously, that's all.

    OK, and also a sweater. Equal pay and a sensible cardigan?


    It's funny because it's true.

    Cyndi also takes exception to the film trope of women running through dangerous situations in high heels.


    Not unreasonable, really.

    But most important:


    ♫ To be paid AS MUCH AS THE DUDES ♫

    👯 PREACH 👯
