"Take It Like A Woman" as written by and Cooper/marlette....
I bet ya never thought that it would never turn out like this
Mama's little girl, Daddy's little princess
But somewhere in your fairy tale everything went wrong
Now the sun don't shine, The words don't ryhme
You're out of time

You've been beaten down, kicked around on the ground
But you took it like a woman
Victimized, terrorized, paralyzed
But you took it like a woman
Pushed too far, pulled too hard, deeply scarred
I know you must have felt the pain
But you took it like a woman

Ya thought you had your Mr. Right but he was really Mr. Hyde
Ya gave him your most precious gift, you were his bleeding bride
He tied you up pulled your hair, and slapped your innocent face
Yeah, you were black and blue, he laughed at you
So what'd you do?

Aw you've been beaten down, kicked around on the ground
But you took it like a woman
Victimized, terrorized, paralyzed
But you took it like a woman
Pushed too far pulled too hard, deeply scarred
I know you must have felt the pain
But you took it like a woman

And so its over
Your fantasy life is finally at an end
And the world above is still a brutal place
And the story will start again

You been beaten down, kicked around on the ground
But you took it like a woman
Victimized, terrorized, paralyzed
But you took it like a woman
Pushed too far, pulled too hard, deeply scarred
I know you must have felt the pain
Felt the pain
I know you must have felt the pain
But you took it like a woman

You took it like a woman
I know you must have felt the pain
You took it like a woman
I know you must have felt the pain
You took it like a woman
I know you must have felt the pain
But you took it like a woman

    General CommentYes an ongoing theme with Alice, and they tend to make up his ballads. I like this one...the orchestra in the back is a nice touch
