I’m Eleanor of Aquitaine
knock me down and I’m back again
Voice of reason in a world insane
While the devil’s brood fight to reign
I survive, I survive
I’m Joan of Arc, I’m Mother T
Mada’me Curie, I’m Hillary
You’ve always been afraid of me
But I survive I survive
They focus on the man with the plan,
the man with the seed
who does the deed.
Who might not even know their name
Might have gone, once he came.
(Never to be seen again)
Still I endure, like Mother Earth
My strength is love. I give my blood.
And If you turn your back on me
I’ll hold your hand and bring you tea
A woman’s strength comes from inside.
You can survive, if you will survive.
