Kristin Lems Upbeat

"I saw the phrase on a tee shirt for a YWCA fundraiser for a women's shelter...and it became this song!"
You can't beat a woman, no you can't, no you can't
You can't beat a woman, no you can't.

The story's old, but it must be told
How many women fall to violence
From those they trust, even those they love
But now it's time to break the silence, and say

With no laws to help, and no one to tell
Many women hid their bruises
But days so long have passed and gone
And now there's shelter if she chooses

A woman's life is a precious thing
It should be full of joy and laughter
To be safe at home or on the street
Now that's the goal we're after!
