We Are Women Lyrics

CUNEGONDE, OLDLADY
We are women! We are women!
We are women, little women,
Little, little women are we!

OLD LADY
Not a man ever born ever could resist
A well-turned calf, a slender wrist,
A silhouette as airy as the morning mist,
And a dainty dimpled knee.

CUNEGONDE
Every male I may meet must acclaim for weeks
My twinkling thighs, my flaxen cheeks,
My memorable mammaries like Alpine Peaks,
High above a wine-dark sea.

OLDLADY, CUNEGONDE
We've necks like swans, and oh, such sexy legs,
We're so light-footed we could dance on eggs. (They do.)
A pair of nymphs from fairyland
And every day in every way our charms expand!

You may add, if you wish, to that growing list
A mouth so fair it must be kissed
And parts we cannot mention but we know existIn a rich abundancy.
Not a man ever born ever could resist
A pretty little thing like me!

OLD LADY
Not a man ever born ever could resist
A well-turned calf, a slender wrist, etc.

CUNEGONDE
Every male I may meet must acclaim for weeks
My twinkling thighs, my flaxen cheeks, etc.

OLD LADY
We've Giotto hands, da Vinci smiles,
We are brava divina to balletophiles.

CUNEGONDE
We've Giotto hands, and Mona Lisa smiles,
We are brava divina to balletophiles. (They dance.)

OLDLADY, CUNEGONDE
A pair of nymphs from fairyland, etc.
We are women! We are women!
We are little, little women,
Little, little, little women are we!
