Keep Your Head Up, Sister!

lyrics

'Cause I'm a tiny woman
they don't take me seriously.
Fighting for a leading role
since I was a teen.
Well-behaved, sweet and quiet,
that's how a girl should be.

I don't like the saying
"No pain, no gain".
They say: women must look pretty
to feel confident,
you need to have a perfect skin
and remove all your body hair.

Keep your head up, sister!
You've been working like a man.
If that's what you want to do, just go ahead,
and don't depend on anyone.
Ain't gonna be a mama
Ain't gonna settle down
And oh, no, baby,
I don't need a bridal gown.
Keep your head up, sister!
The change is in your hands.

Women can be strong.
Women can be brave.
We're asked to prove our worth
but we can't go round alone.

You are not in this world
to be seen and not be heard.
Your man is not your daddy,
you can take care of yourself.

Keep your head up, sister!
You've been working like a man.
If that's what you want to do, just go ahead,
and don't depend on anyone.
Ain't gonna be a mama
Ain't gonna settle down
And oh, no, baby,
I don't need a bridal gown.
Keep your head up, sister!
The change is in your hands
Keep your head up, sister!
And never let them throw you down
