I can wash out forty four pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line I can starch and iron two dozens shirts 'fore you can count from one to nine I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippin's can Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, 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 and scrub til this old house is shinin' like a dime Feed the baby, grease the car, and powder my face at the same time Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til four A.M. and then Lay down at five, jump up at six, and start all over again 'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it 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 likin, I'll kiss you and give you the shiverin' fits 'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
I got a twenty dollar gold piece says there ain't nothing I can't do I can make a dress out of a feed bag and I can make a man out of you
'Cause I'm a woman! A W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again 'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, and that's all

"It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)" was inspired by a dream where Michael Stipe conjured up images of people with the initials L.B.: Lester Bangs, Leonid Breshnev, Lenny Bruce and Leonard Bernstein.
If counterpoint and polyrhythms are your thing, you might love these guys. Even by Progressive Rock standards, they were one of the most intricate bands of the '70s. Then their lead singer gave us Bon Jovi.
