Wonder Woman Saves the World in New Music Video Mash-Up Tribute

The DC Comics Extended Universe is about to make history with the first female-led superhero movie. Starring Gal Gadot as the iconic Amazonian warrior and directed by Patty Jenkins, Wonder Woman is not only the most anticipated movie of the summer (according to Fandango), but it has already won over the hearts and minds of critics around the globe. To say that we’re excited to see Princess Diana of Themyscira in action is quite possibly the understatement of the year, and to celebrate her big screen debut, we’ve created a brand new Wonder Woman-inspired music video parody just for you. (Okay, it’s for us, too.)

Just like our Beauty and the Beast and Migos mash-up “Belle and Boujee” or our Bruno Mars-inspired dance number “That Spidey Life”, we’ve gathered our experts together to tell Wonder Woman’s story through the power of music. The problem is, Wonder Woman is so iconic that we can’t really sum her up in just one song. So instead of settling for one, we’ll be paying tribute to our beloved Amazonian superhero through a mash-up of six classic girl power anthems throughout the decades.

Starring Nerdist’s resident Wonder Woman fangirl Jessica Chobot, Legends of Tomorrow‘s Ciara Renee, and Katrina Rosita, “Wonder Woman: Save the World” recreates Diana’s classic looks in some of the most famous music videos of all time. As someone who was fortunate enough to be on set during this momentous shoot, I felt like I was watching a comic book version of “Making the Video” (which is to say, it was the best day ever).

In case you need to brush up on these empowering jams, you can refresh your memory of the original songs below:

“These Boots Are Made for Walkin'” by Nancy Sinatra

“I Am Woman” by Helen Reddy

“Material Girl” by Madonna

“I’m Every Woman” by Whitney Houston

“Stronger” by Britney Spears

“Run the World (Girls)” by Beyonce

And because we know you’re going to get this mash-up stuck in your head, we’re got the lyrics for you right here:

“Wonder Woman: Save the World”

You keep sayin’ you want me in your league
Someone who will rise to the test
You’ve been fightin’ where you shouldn’t’ve been fightin’

And now, you need some help from this princess

These boots are made for battle
And that’s just what they’ll do
One of these days these boots are gonna kick a hole in you

I am woman, watch me soar
Big golden shield and a broadsword!
Amazonian with power to defend

Send your villains to my shore
I’ll leave them bloodied, bruised, and sore
Send them running back into the world of men

If I have to
I can do anything
I am strong (strong!)
My jet’s invisible (invisible!)

I am woman…

Some boys fly and some boys buy
But they won’t save the day (no way!)
But I will, a demigodess
Sculpture made of clay-ay

Cause we all live in, a Themysciran world
And I’m a Themysciran girl
You know that we all live in a Themysciran world
And I’m a Themysciran girl

When I lasso you!
You’re lyin’ days are through
Ain’t no way to hide
Secrets deep inside
An evil scheme you’re keepin’ from me

Then instantly will be revealed, ’cause
I’m Wonder Woman

Can’t lie to me
Anything I wanna know baby
You’ll tell me easily

WHOA WHOA WHOA WHOA

STOP
There’s no one I can’t beat or slay
Baby
My Ti-a-ra-aa
And my gold bracelets will deflect your blades

Baby
You might think that I won’t make it
On my own
But now I’m stronger than DOOMSDAY

Brought to life by Aphrodi-TAY
The daughter of Hippolyta is here
I…I’m…

Who bring the thunder…(girls)
Who save the world? (girls) Who save the world? (girls)
Who save the world? (girls) Who save the world? (girls)
Shout out to Wonder (girls) We bring the thunder (girls)
Shout out to Wonder (girls) We bring the thunder (girls)
Who save the world? (girls) Who save the world? (girls)
Who save the world? (girls) Who save the world? (girls)

We are queens
What do we want?
To save the world
(who bring the thunder)

We are queens
What do we want?
To save the world
WHO SAVE THE WORLD? (girls)
