I'm A Woman
Words & Music:
Jerry Lieber & Mike Stoller
I can wash out 44 pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line.
I can starch & iron 2 dozens shirts 'fore you can count from 1 to 9.
I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippings can.
Throw it in the skillet, go out & do my shopping,
And be back before it melts in the pan.
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again.
I can rub & scrub this old house 'til it's shining like a dime.
Feed the baby, grease the car, & powder my face at the same time.
Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til 4 a.m. and then
Lay down at 5, jump up at 6, and start it all over again.
If you come to me sickly, you know I'm gonna make you well.
If you come to me all hexed up, you know I'm gonna break the spell.
If you come to me hungry, you know I'm gonna fill you full of grits.
If it's lovin' you're liking, I'll kiss you
And give you the shiverin' fits.
I can stretch a greenback dollar bill from here to Kingdom Come.
I can play the numbers pay the bills and still end up with some!
I got a twenty-dollar gold piece says there ain't nothing I can't do
I can make a dress out of an old feedbag and I can make a man out of you
