I talked to gramma just the other day
She said girlchild time you get things straight
And with the time, get with the time
Do what you want girl, and do it all the time

She said when I was a girl no one cared, they just thought me crazy
When my opinions shared time with their minds, so unkind
The way they pushed me down, pushed me around
And made me sorry, that I had a mouth

Get with the time, girlchild don't expect him to see
What a beautiful woman should be
It's your time girlchild, if he don't like it there's one right behind...

She said girlchild don't be afraid to
Come forward and let your voice be heard
Don't let nobody make you so scared
You can't get to where you're going, where are you going...

Get with the time, girlchild don't expect them to see
What a beautiful woman should be
It's your time girlchild, if he don't like it there's one right behind...

Grandmother, mother, child, sister and wife

Do you want me, I'm much more than a body
To be looked at by your ugly expression
Of what a beautiful woman should be

Grandmother, mother, child, my sisters and wives

Make it hot, so hot that they scream it, what a beautiful woman should be!!
It's your time girlchild, if he don't like it I got some friends in mind
Cause you know, when it's time to go, get with, get with the time
Grandmother, mother, child, sister and wife

Love is in everything that you say
And everything that you do
Get with the time, it's coming back to you
Back to you...
