      by Maya Angelou  

      Pretty women wonder where my secret lies
      I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
      But when I start to tell them
      They think I’m telling lies.
      I say,
      It’s in the reach of my arms
      The span of my hips,
      The stride of my step,
      The curl of my lips.
      I’m a woman
      Phenomenal woman,
      That’s me.  

      I walk into a room
      Just as cool as you please,
      And to a man,
      The fellows stand or
      Fall down on their knees.
      Then they swarm around me,
      A hive of honey bees.
      I say,
      It’s the fire in my eyes
      And the flash of my teeth,
      The swing of my waist,
      And the joy in my feet.
      I’m a woman
      Phenomenal woman,
      That’s me.  

      Men themselves have wondered
      What they see in me.
      They try so much
      But they can’t touch
      My inner mystery.
      When I try to show them,
      They say they still can’t see.
      I say
      It’s in the arch of my back,
      The sun of my smile,
      The ride of my breasts,
      The grace of my style.
      I’m a woman
      Phenomenal woman,
      That’s me.  

      Now you understand
      Just why my head’s not bowed.
      I don’t shout or jump about
      Or have to talk real loud.
      When you see me passing
      It ought to make you proud.
      I say,
      It’s in the click of my heels,
      The bend of my hair,
      The palm of my hand,
      The need of my care,
      ‘Cause I’m a woman
      Phenomenal woman,
      That’s me.

      Love it
