In a Man’s World

So hard to be a woman

In a man’s world

It ain’t ever easy

Being his girl

Carrying the sorrow

Of a bitter life

Giving up tomorrow

Just to be his wife

Placing all your dreams

In a paper cup

Then filling it with tears

When he drinks them up

So hard to be a woman

In a man’s world

When you don’t really

Wanna be his girl

Carrying the dream

Of a better life

And praying that tomorrow

Things will be alright

As you stand alone

Out on your own

In a man’s world
