You gotta be fortunate, you gotta be lucky now
I was just sitting here thinkin' good and bad
But I'm the kind of woman that was built to last
They tried erasing me, they couldn't wipe out my past
To save my child, I'd rather go hungry
I've got all of Ethiopia inside of me
And my blood flows through every man
In this Godless land, that delievered me
I've cried so many tears even the blind can see

This is a woman's world, this is my world
This is a woman's world, for this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this world, not a woman or a girl
That can't deliver love, in a man's world

I've born and I've bread, I've cleaned and I've fed
And for my healing wits, I've been called a witch
I've crackled in the fire, and been called a liar
I've died so many times I'm only just coming to life

This is a woman's world, this is my world
This is a woman's world, for this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this world, not a woman or a girl
That can't deliver love to a man's world

And my blood flows
Through every man and every child
In this godless land that delivered me
I've cried so many tears even the blind can see

This is a woman's world, this is my world
This is a woman's world, for this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this world, not a woman or a girl
That can't deliver love in a man's world

Oh this is a woman's world
