Martha & The Muffins – Women Around The World At Work lyrics

In a hundred wars across the earth
Men and guns are thought to prove their worth
Women stay behind and grow the food
Placing soldiers in a dangerous mood

Women around the world at work
Working, working

There's a man who must be sixty-five
Makes his living running other lives
Tells them when they can't and when they can
They're so busy they don't give a damn

Women around the world at work
Working, working

In The Daily X, May '81
Back-page human interest story runs
"Girls of twelve still sold for love today"
Just so men can have their bloody way

Women around the world at work
