Lyrics & Music by John Ono Lennon (John Winston Lennon)
Album: Double Fantasy

"Woman" is a song written and performed by John Lennon from his 1980 album Double Fantasy.
Lennon wrote it as an ode to his wife Yoko Ono, and to all women..
The track begins with Lennon whispering, "For the other half of the sky ...", a paraphrase of a Chinese proverb, once used by Mao Zedong.
"Woman" was the second single released from the Double Fantasy album, and the first Lennon single issued after his death on 8 December 1980. The B-side of the single is Ono's song "Beautiful Boys". The single debuted at number 3 in the UK, then moving to number 2 and finally reaching number 1, where it spent two weeks, knocking off the top spot his own re-released Imagine. In the US the single spent three consecutive weeks at number 2. After its first week at number 2, "Woman" appeared ready to rise to number one for the week ending 28 March 1981; however, Rapture by Blondie unexpectedly leaped from number 6 to number 1 that week preventing Lennon from having his second chart topper from Double Fantasy. The single was also a commercial success in New Zealand where it spent five weeks at number 1.
In an interview for Rolling Stone magazine on 5 December 1980, Lennon said that "Woman" was a "grown-up version" of his song "Girl". In 1965, Lennon's then-songwriting partner and fellow Beatle band mate, Paul McCartney, had written a different song entitled "Woman" for Peter & Gordon using a pseudonym. Thus, both Lennon and McCartney have individual credit for writing different charting songs with the same title..
Woman - I can hardly express
my mixed emotion at my thoughtlessness,
After all I'm forever in your debt,
And woman - I will try to express
my inner feelings and thankfulness
For showing me the meaning of success,
oooh oooh - well, well, — doo doo dooh
oooh oooh - well, well — doo doo dooh

Woman - I know you understand
the little child inside the man,
Please remember my life is in your hands,
And woman - hold me close to your heart,
however, distant don't keep us apart,
After all it is written in the stars,
oooh oooh - well, well, — doo doo dooh
oooh oooh - well, well — doo doo dooh

Woman - please let me explain,
I never meant to cause you sorrow or pain,
So let me tell you again and again and again,
I love you -yeah, yeah — now and forever,
I love you -yeah, yeah — now and forever,
I love you -yeah, yeah — now and forever..

DONNA

Donna, faccio fatica a esprimere
Le mie emozioni contrastanti nei confronti della mia sventatezza
Dopotutto ti sono sempre debitore
E, donna, cercherò di esprimere
I miei intimi sentimenti e la gratitudine
Per avermi mostrato il significato del successo
Oh, bene bene, du du du du du
Oh, bene bene, du du du du du

Donna, so che tu comprendi
Il bambino che è nell'uomo
Ti prego, ricordati che la mia vita è nelle tue mani
E donna, tienimi stretto al tuo cuore
Anche se siamo distanti, non separiamoci
Dopotutto è scritto nelle stelle
Oh, bene bene, du du du du du
Oh, bene bene, du du du du du

Donna, lascia che mi spieghi
Non ho mai avuto intenzione di darti dispiacere o dolore
Allora lascia che ti ripeta
Ti amo, si, si - Ora e per sempre
Ti amo, si, si - Ora e per sempre
Ti amo, si, si - Ora e per sempre
