Words on my lips
I try to fight them
Bitter and burning
One spark can ignite them
Throws back his head
And lights up a cigarette
Playing fire with fire
I blaze into someone else
As I say
I don't mind
Been wasting time
I've got better things
To do with my life
No battle cries
Be civilized
'cause this time I'm gonna take it like
I'm gonna take it like a woman
Why don't you take it like a man
I'm not gonna cry, Oh! no
Just make you understand
I can take it like a woman
I've taken all I can
I'm not gonna die, Oh! no
I gonna take it like a woman
Slap on the wrist
No further indictment
This sister is learning
Her poetic licence
Throws back her head
And lights up a cigarette
Playing fire against
Higher resistance
She's someone else
I don't mind
Been wasting time
I've got better things
To do with my love
No battle cries
Be civilized
This time I'm gonna take it like
I'm gonna take it like a woman
Repeat chorus
