Miley Cyrus gave “Santa Baby” a much-needed feminist update during her appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon.

Prior to starting the song, Cyrus tried to clarify the meaning of its lyrics with Fallon by asking, “Am I saying that I’m gonna hook up with Santa if he buys me all this stuff?” When the talk show host conceded that Cyrus could update the words if she wanted, the singer went all-out, delivering completely different lyrics for the entire song.
