Put Yourself First - "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"


Put yourself first, girl,
Worry about yourself.
Make yourself sexy
Just for yourself
So when dudes see you put yourself first,
They'll be like, ‘Damn, you’re hot, wanna make out?’

Push them boobs up
Just for yourself.
Wear six-inch heels
Just for yourself.

If it’s just for myself, shouldn’t I be comfortable?
Put yourself first in a sexy way!

Pierce your ears
Just for yourself.
Put a hole in your earlobe
Just for yourself.
Brace yourself, this is gonna hurt.
Put yourself first in a sexy way!

Put yourself first, girl,
Worry about yourself.
Wear fake eyelids
Just for yourself.
So when dudes see you put yourself first,
They’ll be like, ‘Damn, you’re hot,
let’s buy a house in Portland!’

Put yourself first for him,
That’s what you gotta do.
Put yourself first for him—
If I put myself first for him
then by definition aren’t I putting myself second?

Don’t think about it too hard
Too too hard.
Don’t think about it too hard
Too too hard.

It’s a wormhole,
It’s the Mobius strip,
It’s snake eats tail,
It’s the infinity sign.

Get a tattoo of the infinity sign,
On your lower back, just for yourself.
But I can’t see my lower back.
Also, can we go back to the fake eyelid
Is that a thing now?

Put yourself first in a sexy way!
Put yourself first for him!
Thank you, sisters!



  • "Put yourself first" is a satire of the classic story telling trope of make-overs that are done solely to get the attention of a specific male figure all while under the guise of female empowerment.
  • The musical sequence itself is patterned after the style of the American girl band Fith Harmony 's music video "BO$$ ".
  • A man wearing a "Male Gaze" t-shirt and taking photos of the girls seems to be a parody of Terry Richardson a noted fashion photographer. Richardson made his name by taking salacious photos and has also been accused of sexual misconduct towards his female models.
