I Am Woman Hear Me Roar

Nearly 50 years ago, Helen Reddy sang out about the frustrations felt by women around the world on a daily basis. It was something for a teenager in high school, who didn’t feel like she fit in anywhere, to hold onto.

It’s a timeless classic that still rings true today. A salute to women everywhere on International Women’s Day!

I am woman, hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend
Cause I’ve heard it all before
And I’ve been down there on the floor
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again

Oh yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
(Strong)
I am invincible
(Invincible)
I am woman

You can bend but never break me
Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal
And I come back even stronger
Not a novice any longer
Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul

Oh yes, I am wise
But it’s wisdom born of pain
Yes, I’ve paid the price
But look how much I gained
If I have to, I can do anything
I am strong
(Strong)
I am invincible
(Invincible)
I am woman

(Helen Reddy, Ray Burton, 1971: https://youtu.be/rptW7zOPX2E)

You Must Believe in Spring

Beneath the deepest snows
The secret of a rose
Is merely that it knows
You must believe in spring

When lonely feelings chill
The meadows of your mind
Just think if winter comes
Can spring be far behind?

Just as a tree is sure
Its leaves will reappear
It knows its emptiness
Is just a time of year

The frozen mountains dreams
Of April’s melting streams
How crystal clear it seems
You must believe in spring

You must believe in love
And trust it’s on its way
Just as a sleeping rose
Awaits the kiss of May

So in a world of snow
Of things that come and go
Where what you think you know
You can’t be certain of
You must believe in spring and love

(Alan Bergman, Marilyn Bergman, Jacques Demy, Michel Legrand, 1967)

Winter Song

Rain and wind, and wind and rain.
Will the Summer come again?
Rain on houses, on the street,
Wetting all the people’s feet,
Though they run with might and main.
Rain and wind, and wind and rain.

Snow and sleet, and sleet and snow.
Will the Winter never go?
What do beggar children do
With no fire to cuddle to,
Perhaps with nowhere warm to go?
Snow and sleet, and sleet and snow.

Hail and ice, and ice and hail,
Water frozen in the pail.
See the robins, brown and red,
They are waiting to be fed.
Poor dears, battling in the gale!
Hail and ice, and ice and hail.

(Katherine Mansfield, 1888 – 1923)

What is This Thing Called Love?

I was a humdrum person
Leading a life apart
When love flew in through my window wide
And quickened my humdrum heart

Love flew in through my window
I was so happy then
But after love had stayed a little while
Love flew out again

What is this thing called love
This funny thing
Called love
Just who can solve its mystery
Why should it make
A fool of me?

I saw you there
One wonderful day
You took my heart
And threw it away
That’s why I ask the lord
In heaven above
What is this thing
Called love?

What is this thing called love
This funny thing
Called love
Just who can solve its mystery
Why should it make
A fool of me?

Ahead by a Century

First thing we’d climb a tree
And maybe then we’d talk
Or sit silently
And listen to our thoughts
With illusions of someday
Cast in a golden light
No dress rehearsal
This is our life

And that’s where the hornet stung me
And I had a feverish dream
With revenge and doubt
Tonight we smoke them out

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

Stare in the morning shroud
And then the day began
I tilted your cloud
You tilted my hand
Rain falls in real time
And rain fell through the night
No dress rehearsal, this is our life

But that’s when the hornet stung me
And I had a serious dream
With revenge and doubt
Tonight we smoked them out

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century

You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
You are ahead by a century
And disappointing you is gettin’ me down
