"I'm a Woman" as written by Mustafa Guendogdu, Peter Hinderthuer and Errol Rennalls....
I can wash out forty four pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line
I can starch and iron two dozens shirts 'fore you can count from one to nine
I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippin's can
Throw it in the skillet, go out and do my shopping, be back before it melts in the pan
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again

I can rub and scrub til this old house is shinin' like a dime
Feed the baby, grease the car, and powder my face at the same time
Get all dressed up, go out and swing 'til four A.M. and then
Lay down at five, jump up at six, and start all over again
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again

If you come to me sickly you know I'm gonna make you well
If you come to me all hexed up you know I'm gonna break the spell
If you come to me hungry you know I'm gonna fill you full of grits
If it's lovin' you're likin, I'll kiss you and give you the shiverin' fits
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again

I got a twenty dollar gold piece says there ain't nothing I can't do
I can make a dress out of a feed bag and I can make a man out of you

'Cause I'm a woman! A W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, and that's all

    General CommentPeggy Lee died in 2002 so I'm posting the lyrics to this song; it was one of her hits. I think she'd be proud of it. It's also all over the web already.

    General CommentI can wash out 44 pairs of socks and have 'em hangin' out on the line
    I can starch & iron 2 dozens shirts 'fore you can count from 1 to 9
    I can scoop up a great big dipper full of lard from the drippins can
    Throw it in the skillet, go out & do my shopping, be back before it melts in the pan
    'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again

    I can rub & scrub this old house til it's shinin' like a dime

    'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again

    I can stretch! a green black dollar bill from here to kingdom come!
    I can play the numbers pay the bills and still end up with some!
    I got a twenty-dollar gold piece says there ain't nothing I can't do
    I can make a dress out of a feed bag and I can make a man out of you
    'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, I'll say it again
    'Cause I'm a woman! W-O-M-A-N, and that's all.
