  • Hey there you lady in tears
    Do you think that they care if they're real, woman?
    They just take it as part of the deal
    Lost in your men and the games you play
    Trying to prove that you're better, woman
    But you needn't get heavy with them
    Like it or not, we were built tough
    Because we're woman

    No, we never die for long
    While we've got that little life
    To live for, where it's hid inside
    No, we never die for long
    Oh! Woman, two in one

    There's room for a life in your womb, woman
    Inside of you can be two, woman
    There's room for a life in your womb, woman
    Mama woman, aha!

    Night after night in the quiet house
    Plaiting her hair by the fire, woman
    With no lover to free her desire
    How long do you think she can stick it out?
    How long do you think before she'll go out, woman?
    Hey! Get up on your feet and go get it, now
    Like it or not, we keep bouncing back,
    Because we're woman

    No, we never die for long,
    While we've got that little life
    To live for, where it's hid inside.
    Oh! Woman, two in one,

    There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
    Inside of you can be two, woman,
    There's room for a life in your womb, woman,
    Mama woman, aha!

    A-mama-woma-mama-woman-aha!
    A-mama-woma-mama-woman-aha!
    Oh, mama-woman, two-in-a-one, aha!
    Oh, two in one, aha!
    Oh, woman! Woman! Woman! Woman!
    There's room for a life in your womb!
    There's room for a life in your womb!
    Two in one, aha!
    Two in one! Two in one! Two in one!
    Room for a life in your womb Writer/s: KATE BUSH
