Diva Cup – ‘My rag’s not a drag cuz you make me feel fine’

Holy Hormones Honey! Guys singing songs about fem hygiene to Red, Red, Wine?
Well, Matt and Dan do a great job so sit back and enjoy!

This ethnographic song is inspired by the Menstrual Tales, presented by the Reproductive Justice League and the 2110 Centre for Gender
Advocacy on July 17th 2012.

Lyrics (written and sung by Dan Parker, guitar by Matthew Wiviott, spoof of Red Red Wine by UB40, originally composed and performed by Neil Diamond)

Lyrics below!

Diva Cup
Stay inside me
Hold on to all of the blood
From my period

Diva Cup
It’s thanks to you
That I don’t need those old tampons
Or temp’rary pads
No more tem’prary pads

I had bought
So many times
Products made
By patriarchal guys
I was wrong
Now I find
Just one thing is all I need


I had bought
In the past
Products that
Were never made to last
I was wrong
Now I think fast
No more pads cuz all I need, is…


Diva cup whenever you fill up
I empty you then I rinse you up
Diva cup I’m telling all my peers
You’re only 30 dollars but you last for many years

Diva Cup it makes me feel so sad
So many women use diaper pads.
Diva cup the world is messed up
Let’s tell our lovers and our sisters what’s up

Diva Cup I heard the keeper works too
Moon cup, lady cup other cups too
But most of my ladyfriends talk about you
And how you’re amazing at what you do

Diva Cup since the very first time
My rag’s not a drag cuz you make me feel fine
Diva cup you last in me a long time
My rag’s not a drag cuz you make me feel fine
