Saturday Night Live is doing its best to bring us back down to earth. On Dec. 2, living legends Kate McKinnon, Aidy Bryant, Cecily Strong, and guest star Saoirse Ronan performed a pop song parody reminding the world that women have battled sexual harassment since the dawn of time. Never fear: the tune's title will have you have you laughing through your tears: "Welcome to Hell."

The parody makes a great point. While sexual harassment has been a trendy issue ever since Harvey Weinstein was outed for being walking garbage, it has always existed. Just because we're talking about it more now doesn't mean it wasn't just as important 20, 50, or 100 years ago.

Check out the lyrics:

Hey there boys,
I know the last couple of months have been frickin' insane
All these big, cool, powerful guys have been turning out to be
oh, what’s the term...
habitual sexual predators?

Cat's out of the bag
(meow)
Women get harassed all the time
Is this the world now?
Here's a little secret that every girl knows:
(shh)
Oh, this been the damn world
