The Lyrics

I think it's wrong.. my boss is a woman.. the best boss in the world
she can run it with style, she can supervise guys
she will fire and hire, but she's really nice
and when her bottom line is compared then to me,
although she is better they pay less to a woman than me..

she can order the stuff, and balance the books
but she has to have kids, and takes care of her looks
and she's happy to have this job for her fees
although it's so wrong they pay less to a woman than me

oh, she has grace in herself, she could leave if she wants
but he puts in her time..
oh.. and she never cries out, and she never gives in
she's a beautiful mind..

and she'll buy you some lunches if you've not yet eaten
with a love and a syle, she gives workplace some freedom
she brings out the best in the worker I'll be
blame the bosses again they pay less to a woman than me
oh, she has grace in herself, she could leave if she wants
but he puts in her time..
oh.. and she never cries out, and she never gives in
she's a beautiful mind..

she's so very kind, and she's never been cruel
and she'll join in the mix, and swing hammers and tools
she's the leader inside that I've wanted to be..
and the most she gets paid is half what I've made,
paid less to a woman than me....

Very well written, Malcolm, on a topic not often done here.

Classy. Nice change from the poo and sex. It looks like the women's movement didn't make a dent after all.

This one is much better than the other two I've read by you today. I won't comment on poo and sex per-se, but good work on this one. . .and women making less then men is a tragedy in this country. . .so hats off for that one.
