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 curt 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 people,
The crowd stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
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,
People 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 grace of my style. I'm a woman
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,
Grandsons Mr. Eric J. Morgan Mr. Ulysses Morgan III Mr. Quentin R. Morgan Mr. Timothy N. Morgan
Grand Nephew Mr. Dexter Henderson
