    Last night, Cyndi Lauper joined James Corden on his Late Late Show. The two performed a reworking of her biggest hit, "Girls Just Want to Have Fun." This time, Cyndi and James turned the 1983 classic into a direct look at the still unequal pay between women and men. Check out the lyrics and video below:

    "I come home in the morning light
    My mother says "Why don't you make same as a guy?"
    Oh mamma, dear, we're not the fortunate ones!
    ‘Cause, Girls they want equal funds
    Oh girls, they want equal funds

    Guys, if she's mad, it's not PMS
    Its ‘cause you do same job but she's making less
    Don't need no Midol, just need more income
    ‘Cause girls they want equal funds
    Oh girls just want equal funds

    That's all they want
    That and a sweater ‘cause the office is cold

    And if you ask us on a date oh, boys, be ready to pay
    We'll get the check when we make the same

    Girls, they want, want equal funds
    Oh girls just want equal funds
    In every movie, when things get real
    A girl runs from danger still wearing high heels
    Oh Hollywood, that's not what we'd do!
    ‘Cause girls they want comfy shoes
    And to be paid as much as the dudes
    That's what they really want
    Equal funds
    When the working day is done
    Oh girls, don't get too bummed
    ‘Cause one day we'll get equal funds

    Girls, they want equal funds
    Girls, they want equal funds
    They just wanna, They just wanna…"
