I can wash forty four pairs of socks And have ‘em hangin’ out on the line. I can starch and iron two dozen shirts Before you can count from one to nine. I can scoop up a great big dipper fulla lard From the drippings can. Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, …be back before it melts in the pan.
‘Cause I’m a woman… W-O-M-A-N
I can rub and scrub ’til this old house is shining like a dime. Feed the baby, grease the car, and Powder my face at the same time. Get all dressed up, Go out and swing ’till 4 am and then, Lay down at five, jump up at 6, And start all over again.
‘Cause I’m a woman… W-O-M-A-N.
If you come to me sickly, You know I’m gonna make you well. If you come to me hexed, You know I’m gonna break the spell. If you come to me hungry, I’ll fill ya full of grits. And if it’s loving you like, Then I’ll kiss ya, and give you the shivering fits.
‘Cause I’m a woman… W-O-M-A-N. I’ll say it again.
I got a twenty dollar gold piece Says there’s ain’t nothin’ I can’t do. I can make a dress out of a feed bag, I can make a man out Of you.
‘Cause I’m a woman… W-O-M-A-N. I’ll say it again. ‘Cause I’m a woman… W-O-M-A-N.
