PHENOMENAL WOMAN:

       
Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I'm not cute or built to suit a fashion model's size
But 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 step,
The curl of my lips.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
   I walk into a room
       
    Just as cool as you please,
       
    And to a man,
       
    The fellows stand or
       
    Fall down on their knees.
       
    Then they swarm around me,
       
    A hive of honey bees.
       
    I say,
       
    It's the fire in my eyes,
       
    And the flash of my teeth,
       
    The swing in my waist,
       
    And the joy in my feet.
       
    I'm a woman
       
    Phenomenally.
       
    Phenomenal woman,
       
    That's me.

Men themselves have wondered
What they see in me.
They try so much
But they can't touch
My inner mystery.
When I try to show them
They say they still can't see.
I say,
It's in the arch of my back,
The sun of my smile,
The ride of my breasts,
The grace of my style.
I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

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 of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

Gloria Steinem

Liz Phair

Face it--LIZ PHAIR ROCKS!!!!! besides from being one of my (Rose's) favorite musicians
     
of all time, her lyrics are thoughtful and strongly FEMINIST. Unfortunately,
     
she has a very bad case of stage fright so if u see her preform, u r lucky,
     
lucky, lucky!!!!!! right now she is pregnant, so she probably wont have any
