  • I'm every woman,
    It's all in me
    Anything you want done, baby,
    I'll do it naturally

    I'm every woman,
    It's all in me
    I can read your thoughts right now,
    Every one from A to Z
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    Whoa, whoa, whoa

    I can cast a spell,
    Of secrets you can't tell,
    Mix a special brew,
    Put fire inside of you
    Anytime you feel danger or fear,
    Then instantly
    I will appear 'cause

    I'm every woman,
    It's all in me
    Anything you want done, baby,
    I'll do it naturally
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    Whoa, whoa, whoa

    I can sense your needs
    Like rain unto the seeds
    I can make a rhyme
    Of confusion in your mind
    And when it comes down to some good old-fashioned love,
    That's what I've got baby, 'cause

    I'm every woman,
    It's all in me
    I can read your thoughts right now,
    Every one from A to Z
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    Whoa, whoa, whoa

    I ain't braggin' 'cause I am the one
    You just ask me, oo, it shall be done
    And don't bother to compare,
    I've got it (I've got it)
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    Whoa, whoa, whoa
    Ah ah

    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    Anything you want done, baby,
    Anything,
    Anything you want done, baby,
    Anything, anything
    Anything you want done, baby,
    Anything,
    Anything you want done, baby,
    Anything, anything

    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman
    I'm every woman Writer/s: Nickolas Ashford, Valerie Simpson

  • Tracy from Houston, TxLol!!! Whitney did not sing backing vocals on this song @ 14!!! She sang back up on Chaka's solo sophomore album's title track "Clouds" @ 16 with Cissy!!! However Cissy was on Chaka's debut album & sang back up on "Love Has Fallen On Me" & "Roll Me Throgh The Rushes" with Luther Vandross!!! FYI-Whitney worships @ the altar of Chaka Khan & claims her as next to her mother,"her biggest musical influence"!!!
