This Girl Scout's video will have you feeling "good as hell."

Amory Vargo made headlines this week after she released a remix of Lizzo's song "Truth Hurts" to sell more cookies

For instance, instead of singing, "You coulda had a bad bitch, non-committal/Help you with your career, just a little," the 9-year-old troop member croons, "You got a Thin Mint, minty middle/Help a community, just a little."

She also sings, "Fresh lemons with the bomb icing/Lemon-Ups are new and exciting," instead of the real lyrics, "Fresh photos with the bomb lighting/New man on the Minnesota Vikings."

According to her cookie sales page, Vargo's goal is to sell 2020 boxes and earn a free week at camp. She's almost halfway there, too. At the time of this writing, the Ohio native had already sold 939 packages. 

Per Good Morning America, Vargo creates a video every year to help drive sales; however, this is reportedly her most successful one yet. The video has close to 106,000 views so far.

It looks like Vargo is a fan of the Grammy-nominated artist, too.

"She really loves Lizzo," her mom, Samantha, told Today. "We talk a lot about the meanings behind songs, and we listen to Lizzo at home. I really love the message Lizzo shares about loving who you are, being independent. It resonates well with a young girl I feel, being comfortable with our bodies is so important, and so difficult, in the modern age." 

"Truth Hurts" wasn't the only song Vargo considered. According to Good Morning America, the junior scout initially considered remixing Lil Nas X's "Old Town Road" but couldn't get the lyrics to work.
