Woman Is The Nigger Of The World
John Lennon& Yoko Ono
(Recorded live at Madison Square Garden, New York, August 1972)

"One, two, three, four!"

Woman is the nigger of the world
Yes she is, think about it
Woman is the nigger of the world
Think about it, do something about it.

We make her paint her face and dance
If she won't be a slave, we say that she don't love us
If she's real, we say she's trying to be a man
While puttin´ her down, we pretend so hard that she's above us.

You know woman is the nigger of the world
Yes, if you don't believe me, take a look at the one you're with
Woman is the slave to the slaves
Oh yeah, if you believe me, scream about it!

We make her bear and raise our children
And then we leave her flat for being a fat old mother hen
We tell her home is the only place she should be
Then we complain that she's too unworldly to be our friend.

Well now woman is the nigger of the world
Yes she is
If you believe me, take a look at the one you're with
Woman is the slave to the slaves
Ooh yeah, if you believe me you´d better scream!

We insult her ev´ry day on TV
And wonder why she has no guts or confidence
When she´s young we kill her will to be free
This is the one I can never remember but you´ll get the message anyway!

You know that woman is the nigger of the world
Yes she is
If you don't believe me, take a look at the one you're with
Woman is the slave to the slaves
Yeah Connoly was right, wee scream it!

We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
You know we make her paint her face and dance
Dance, dance, dance
We make her paint her face and dance
We make her paint her face and dance
