  • Pretty women wonder
    Where my secret lies
    I'm not cute or built to suit
    A fashion model's size
    When I start to tell them
    They think I'm telling lies

    I say
    It's in the reach of my arms
    The span of my hips
    The stride of my steps
    The curl of my lips

    I'm a woman (phenomenal, phenomenal, phenomenal)
    Phenomenal woman (phenomenal, phenomenal)
    Yes, indeed (phenomenal)
    'Cause I'm a woman (phenomenal)
    Phenomenal woman (phenomena, phenomenal)
    Baby, that's me (phenomenal, phenomenal)
    (Phenomenal woman)

    I walk into a room
    Just as cool as you please
    To a man
    Fellows stand or
    Fall down on their knees
    Then they swarm around me
    Like a hive of honey bees

    I say
    It's the fire in my eyes
    The flash of my teeth
    The swing of my waist
    The joy in my feet

    I'm a woman (phenomenal, phenomenal, phenomenal)
    Phenomenal woman (phenomenal, phenomenal)
    Yes, indeed (phenomenal)
    'Cause I'm a woman (phenomenal)
    Phenomenal woman (phenomena, phenomenal)
    Baby, that's me

    It's in the arch of my back (oh, the arch of my back)
    The sun of my smile (sun of my smile)
    The ride of my breasts
    The grace of my style

    Now you understand
    Just why my head's not bowed
    I don't shout
    Or jump about
    Or have to talk real loud
    When you see me passing
    It ought to make you proud

    I say
    It's in the click of my heels
    The bend of my hair
    The palm of my hand
    The need for my care (phenomenal)

    'Cause I'm a woman, yeah
    Phenomenal woman
    Yes, indeed
    'Cause I'm a woman (phenomenal)(you are)
    Phenomenal woman (you're phenomenal)
    Baby, that's me (yes, you are)
    Baby, that's me
    Oh (phenomena, phenomenal)
    Yes, we're phenomenal (phenomenal woman)
    I'm a phenomenal woman (phenomenal woman)
    You're right, we're strong
    Yes, you are
    You can do anything you want (phenomena, phenomenal)
    We're Phenomenal (phenomenal woman)
    Oh, keep it real (phenomenal woman)
    Stay strong, never give up
    We're phenomenal (phenomenal, phenomenal woman)
    Yes, you are (phenomena, phenomenal, phenomenal woman)
    You're phenomenal (phenomena)
    You're phenomenal (phenomenal woman)
    Yes, you are
    Phenomenal woman) don't you dare give up
