The MOST Phenomenal Woman!!!

My sister, Marguerite, is truly BEYOND PHENOMENAL.  Her hair was falling out just like our brother's, mine AND our mother's did.  And, unlike our mother, my sister was courageous like our brother and me and just recently cut it ALL off!  Yes, I'm sure many will think she's a cancer patient, but she isn't.  She's simply a woman who knows WHO SHE IS and as a result, truly lives her life to the FULLEST!  Oooh, what a woman!!!!!!!!  Phenomenal woman, that's she!!!!!!
Phenomenal Woman

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.
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
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
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 of my care,
'Cause I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.
