Phenomenal Remix 

Other women often wonder just what it is

I don’t have what they call a fantastic body

Hell, I’ve had three kids

When I attempt to explain it

They see no truth in my word

See it’s only those who listen

Who have truly heard

I tell them

It’s in the stride of my walk

The pride of my stance

The air of my talk

The soul of my dance

I am a woman

Phenomenally

Phenomenal woman

That’s me

 

I command the respect of each man I come across

Those who fail to conform

Soon realize their loss

Whether it be in the bedroom or the boardroom

I am truly revered, immortalized

I’ve often been told of the strength

Evident in my eyes

I am a woman

Phenomenally

Phenomenal woman

That’s me

 

Others wish to know

What desirable qualities I posses

I’ll admit I like the question

Posed by their eyes as they ponder

They wonder, they guess

They seem confused

Unable to see

How I’m so conscious

To what so apparent, so obvious

All eyes are on me

I tell them

It’s in the obstacles of my past

Those I’ve endured and overcome

It’s in the way I’ve already worked out

Those challenges yet to come

See the girl I was then

Truly served her purpose

She laid the foundation

For the woman who has surfaced

I am a woman

Phenomenally

Phenomenal woman

That’s me

 

It may now be apparent

Why I am so often seen alone

Without a crowed

It is sometimes hard for others

To accept that I’m so proud

It’s in

The lyrics of my song

The burdens on my back

It’s in the flip of my tongue

The quick of my verbal attack

I am a woman

Phenomenally

Phenomenal woman

That’s me

Maya Angelou
