Phenomenal Woman

BY MAYA ANGELOU

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.

I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size,

But when I start to tell them, They think I’m telling lies.

I say, It’s in the reach of my arms,

The span of my hips,

The stride of my step,

The curl of my lips.

I’m a woman Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman, That’s me.

I walk into a room Just as cool as you please,

And to a man,

The fellows stand or Fall down on their knees.

Then they swarm around me,

A hive of honey bees.

I say, It’s the fire in my eyes,

And the flash of my teeth,

The swing in my waist,

And the joy in my feet.

I’m a woman Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman, That’s me.

Men themselves have wondered,

What they see in me.

They try so much,

But they can’t touch,

My inner mystery.

When I try to show them,

They say they still can’t see.

I say, It’s in the arch of my back,

The sun of my smile,

The ride of my breasts,

The grace of my style.

I’m a woman Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman, That’s me.

Now you understand,

Just why my head’s not bowed.

I don’t shout or jump about,

Or have to talk real loud.

When you see me passing,

It ought to make you proud.

I say, It’s in the click of my heels,

The bend of my hair, the palm of my hand,

The need for my care.

’Cause I’m a woman Phenomenally.

Phenomenal woman, That’s me.
