Man

Se I’m a Woman di Koko Taylor è stata la risposta a “I’m a Man” di Bo Diddley, questa ben più militante “Woman” è da intendersi come una delle risposte - un’altra è Message From the Soul Sisters di Vicki Anderson - a “It's a Man's Man's Man's World” di James Brown...
Il “Godfather of Soul” che incontra il trip hop dei Massive Attack...
You gotta be fortunate
You gotta be lucky now
I was just sitting here
Thinking good and bad
But I'm the kinda woman
That was built to last
They tried erasing me
But they couldn't wipe out my past
To save my child
I'd rather go hungry
I got all of Ethiopia
Inside of me

And my blood flows
Through every man
In this godless land
That delivered me
I've cried so many tears even the blind can see

This is a woman's world
This is my world
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this world
Not a woman or a little girl,
That can't deliver love
In a man's world.

I've born and I've bread.
I've cleaned and I've fed.
And for my healing wits
I've been called a witch
I've crackled in the fire
And been called a liar
I've died so many times
I'm only just coming to life.

This is a woman's world
This is my world
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this world
Not a woman or a little girl
That can't deliver love
In a man's world.

And my blood flows
Through every man and every child
In this godless land
That delivered me
I cried so many tears even the blind can see

This is a woman's world
This is my world
This is a woman's world
For this man's girl
There ain't a woman in this world
Not a woman or a little girl
That can't deliver love
In a man's world.
