  • 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 Writer/s: Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller
