Pretty women wonder
Where my secret lies
I'm not cute or built to suit
A fashion model's size
But when I try to tell them
They think I'm telling lies

I say it's the reach of my arms
The span of my hips
The stride of my steps
The curl of my lips

I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
Yes, indeed
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
Baby, that's me

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please
And, to a man, the fellows stand
Or fall down on their knees
Then they swarm around me
Like a hive of honeybees

I say it's the fire in my eyes
The flash of my teeth
The swing of my waist
The joy in my feet

I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
Yes, indeed
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
Baby, that's me

It's in the arch of my back
The sun of my smile
The ride of my breasts
The grace of my style

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 for my care

I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
Yes, indeed
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman
Baby, that's me
