Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg spoke for many liberals and women’s health advocates with her searing dissent to the majority decision in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby. Now, songwriter Jonathan Mann is singing for them.

As Think Progress explains, Mann — who has been writing a song a day for years — took less than four hours to turn Ginsburg’s legal argument into an acoustic ballad.

Mann’s song isn’t completely faithful to Ginsburg’s dissent — the liberal justice never used the term “slut-shaming geezers,” for example — but it does capture the general spirit of the thing.

Ginsburg’s entire dissent can be read here.
