Woman (Hepburn Alex)

You gotta be fortunate You gotta be lucky now I was just sitting here Thinking good and bad But I'm the kinda woman That was built to last They tried erasing me But they couldn't wipe out my past To save my child I'd rather go hungry I got all of ethiopia Inside of me And my blood flows Through every man 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 little 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 little girl, That can't deliver love In a man's world. My blood flows Through every man and every child In this godless land That delivered me I 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 little girl, That can't deliver love In a man's world.
