I Am Woman!

I listened to your words of love
And held them to my heart
You filled my nights with ecstasy
And swore we'd never part
And then one day you disappeared
Without saying goodbye
I cried til there were no more tears
And thought that I would die
But that was then, and this is now
And here you are again
Expecting me to take you back
Just like we were back then
Sorry to disappoint you, dear
That's not gonna happen
Things have changed, and I'm among them
Can't you hear the clappin?
That's all the women of the world
Showing their 'preciation
All giving me their full support
For emancipation
See, it's like this, I don't need you
I don't want you either
We women, we can stand alone
I'm a true believer
I've done just fine without you here
I've risen to the task
Of counting only on myself
Oh, go ahead! Just ask!
I see you're bursting at the seams
You feel you have to know
Is someone else now in my life
You just don't get it...so
I'll give it to you plain and straight
So you will understand
I do everything for myself
Who needs a lousy man!?
