“I Am Woman” Sheet Music (pdf).
“I Am Woman” Karaoke (midi with lyrics).

Lyrics: Helen Reddy.
Tune: Ray Burton.


I am woman. Hear me roar
In numbers too big to ignore.
And I know too much to go back and pretend
’Cause I’ve heard it all before,
And I’ve been down there on the floor.
No one’s ever goin’ to keep me down again.

Whoa, yes, I am wise,
But it’s wisdom born of pain.
Yes, I’ve paid the price,
But look how much I’ve gained.
If I have to, I can do anything.
I am strong.
I am invincible.
I am woman.

You can bend but never break me
’Cause it only serves to make me
More determined to achieve my final goal,
And I’ll come back even stronger—
Not a novice any longer—
’Cause you’ve deepened the conviction in my soul.

Whoa, yes, I am wise,
But it’s wisdom born of pain.
Yes, I’ve paid the price,
But look how much I’ve gained.
If I have to, I can do anything.
I am strong.
I am invincible.
I am woman.

I am woman. Watch me grow.
See me standing toe-to-toe
As I spread my loving arms across the land,
But I’m still an embryo
With a long, long way to go
Until I make my brother understand.

Whoa, yes, I am wise,
But it’s wisdom born of pain.
Yes, I’ve paid the price,
But look how much I’ve gained.
If I have to, I can face anything.
I am strong.
I am invincible.
I am woman.

Oh, I am woman.
