‘Say What You Wanna Say’, An ‘SNL’ Sketch In Which Women Take the Lyrics of Sara Bareilles’ Song ‘Brave’ Literally

In the Saturday Night Live sketch “Say What You Wanna Say“, several women take the lyrics of Sara Bareilles‘ song “Brave” literally and empower themselves say what they want to say to whomever they want, no matter how off-putting they might actually be.

Five women (Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong, Dakota Johnson, Aidy Bryant, Leslie Jones) stop holding back and start telling the truth, just like Sara Bareilles would want them to.

Say what you wanna say and let the words fall out
Honestly I wanna see you be brave with what you want to say
And let the words fall out, honestly I wanna see you be brave
And since your history of silence won’t do you any good,
Did you think it would? Let your words be anything but empty
Why don’t you tell them the truth?
