Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) will tell you what she wants, what she really, really wants ― and that’s the end of the partial government shutdown.

The freshman lawmaker made Spice Girls-themed gags on Twitter early Friday as she continued campaigning for the full reopening of the government, which she also demanded in her debut speech on the House floor.

She likened this photo of herself, Rep. Katie Hill (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jahana Hayes (D-Conn.) to “a Spice Girls album cover.”

Hill responded by reimagining the lyrics from the Spice Girls’ 1996 hit “Wannabe.”

Ocasio-Cortez tweeted back a line from the song:

? Now don't go wasting our precious time/If they get their act together we could be just fine ? https://t.co/PkBS823wLd

Their exchange inspired others online to spice up their tweets in similar ways:

If you wanna be the senate majority leader, you gotta reopen the government. This shutdown can’t last forever, the special counsel’s investigation will soon end.
