Modern Woman

Just for fun...

I Am (Modern) Woman

I am woman, hear me roar
I slammed my fingers in the door
As I loaded groceries in my minivan.
I had to run down to the store
To get spot cleaner for the floor
And I still have dinner and dessert to plan

Yes, I'm barefoot, but I'm calloused against pain.
Yes, I've given birth, and look how much I've gained.
If I have to, I can clean anything.
I am tired. My roots are visible. I am woman.


I'm experienced at baking
And I've won awards for making
Things from dryer lint and toilet paper rolls.
And my son's a little leaguer,
So of course I'm always eager
To sew uniforms whenever they get holes.

Yes, I'm barefoot, but I'm calloused against pain.
Yes, I've given birth, and look how much I've gained.
If I have to, I can clean anything.
I am tired. My roots are visible. I am woman.


I am woman, watch me grow.
I no longer see my toes,
And I'm spreading even farther as we speak.
But there's ironing to do,
As soon as my soap opera's through.
Just because I stay home doesn't mean I'm weak.

Yes, I'm barefoot, but I'm calloused against pain.
Yes, I've given birth, and look how much I've gained.
If I have to, I can clean anything.
I am tired. My roots are visible. I am woman.
