The Avett Brothers – New Woman's World lyrics
It used to be a man’s world, but we didn’t treat it right
It used to be a man’s world, but all we did was fight

I’m glad it’s finally in the hands of the women and the girls
I can’t wait to see what they do with what’s left of the world

Ladies, I’m sorry, but we couldn’t seem to learn
How to live in peace, so Rome had to burn

And we cared about clean air, but there was money to be made
And breathing is nice but it don’t compare to getting paid

It used to be a man’s world, but we didn’t treat it right
It used to be a man’s world, but all we did was fight

I’m glad it’s finally in the hands of the women and the girls
I can’t wait to see what they do with what’s left of the world

Please I beg your pardon, but we got a bit confused
Some of our brothers thought our sisters were born for getting used

Then we made the assumption that’s how it should be done
And then tried to excuse ourselves in the name of fun

Don’t get me wrong, hope ain’t fully gone
Scores of decent men built the rode I’m standing on
But a lot of it has crumbled through prideful mistakes
And ashes cover much of what the flood he didn’t take

I know that we are giving you a lot to straighten out, the silver lining broke away from the thunder cloud

And it took us a few thousand years to make a mess so fine
I bet y’all sort it out in less than half the time

It used to be a man’s world, excess in the extreme
It used to be a man’s world, but we ran out of steam

We couldn’t seem to reach the grace that’s born in every girl
Still I hope that I can lend a hand in this new woman’s world

Let me know if I can help out, in this new woman’s world
