Youssou N'dour – Shaking The Tree lyrics

Aiting your time, dreaming of a better life
Waiting your time, so much more than just a wife
You don't have to do what your mother has done
She has done
This is your life, this new life has begun
It's your day, Woman's Day
It's your day, Woman's Day
Turning the tide you are now on the incoming wave
Turning the tide you know you are nobody's slave
Find the brothers and sisters
Who can hear all the truth in what you say
They can support you when you are on your way.
It's your day, Woman's Day
It's your day, Woman's Day
Souma yergon, sou nou yergon, we are shakin' the tree

(If we had known, if we only had known) [x3]
Changing your ways, changing those surrounding youchanging your ways, more
Than any man can do
Open your heart, show him the anger and pain so you heal
Mabe he's looking for his womanly side, let him feel
You have to be so strong
And you do nothing wrong
Nothing wrong at all
We have to shake it down
We're gonna break it down
All around the town
Souma yergon, sou nou yergon, we are shakin' the tree
(If we had known, if we only had known) [x7]
