F U Pay Me

from Beyoncé – Run the World (Girls) Lyrics on Rap Genius


She is referring to the glass ceiling and the gender disparity of income in the U.S. Women make 80 cents on the dollar compared to men. Even male nurses, who only recently hit the scene, make more than female nurses.

She is also quoting Ray Liotta in Goodfellas:

“F*** you, pay me.”
