Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman
Standing up to a test, while wearing a party dress
Sometimes looks can be deceiving when you're quietly over-achieving
Yeah sometimes it takes balls to be a woman

She's a socialite, a decent housewife and she makes a mean lasagna
So when the mechanic, said 'Lady don't panic, but this one's gonna cost ya'
She said 'I know I don't need my engine rebuilt, now just check the oil and
change the belt,
Honey, I know you thought you saw me coming'
Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman

Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman
Standing up to a test, while wearing a party dress
Sometimes looks can be deceiving when you're quietly over-achieving
Oh, sometimes it takes balls to be a woman

He says I should repent for the money I spent on shoes and bags and jewelry
Well 'To hell with that, my hard working ass ain't gonna sit before a jury'
Now isn't that a mighty small price to pay
For all the love I send your way
Honey when it comes down to the plumbin'
Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman

[Chorus]
Sometimes It takes balls to be a woman
Standing up to a test, while wearing a party dress
Sometimes looks can be deceiving when you're quietly over-achieving
Oh, sometimes it takes balls to be a woman

Look at Dolly and Loretta, they still live it to the letter
Oh, sometimes it takes balls to be a woman
Sometimes it takes balls to be, big big big big balls to be
Sometimes it takes balls to be a woman
