Woman Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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
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 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
Died so many times
I'm only just coming to life
(Woman)

This is a woman's world
This is my world
(Woman)
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
(Woman)

There ain't a woman in this world
Not a woman or a girl
(Woman)
That can't deliver love
To a man's world

[Incomprehensible]

And 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
(Woman)

This is a woman's world
This is my world
(Woman)
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
(Woman)

There ain't a woman in this world
Not a woman or a girl
(Woman)
That can't deliver love
In a man's world
(Woman)

Oh, this is a woman's world
Woman
Woman
Woman
