lyrics

Used to be the man who sailed the ocean
The man who held the reins and drove the plow
The man who kept the books and told the stories
Once upon a time that isn’t now

Then the woman got an intuition
The man wouldn’t always have to win
She didn’t need to stay inside the castle
She didn’t have to take the blame for sin

Now it’s the woman’s turn
Now’s the time to pry the door open
Now it’s the woman’s turn
Turn the tide and turn the tables

Now it’s the woman’s turn
Time for dancing on the glass ceiling
Now it’s the woman’s turn
To learn to know her place - is everywhere

Nowadays the woman is no object
As she starts to run the human race
A crazy woman driver on a mission
To overcome the fear that millions face

The fear that woman leads man to temptation
The fear he can’t be what he used to be
And if the man could learn to show his courage
He’d see it’s time to set the woman free

Now it’s the man’s turn
Now’s the time to hold the door open
Now it’s the man’s turn
Time to stand up for the woman

Now, it’s the man’s turn
Put the seat down at the big table
Now, it’s the man’s turn
To stop and ask her for directions now

Now it’s the woman’s turn
To use her wiles, help him see reason
Now it’s the woman’s turn
Do the math, there’s strength in numbers

Now it’s the man’s turn
Give a hand up, so she’ll get a leg up
Now’s everybody’s turn
Do-si-do and swing your partner round
Soon she’ll know
she is free
And her life is her own property

To take back the night
To take back the day
Take the future ’cause it’s headed her way

No more rape
No abuse
When biology is not an excuse

No means no
Yes means yes
And you won’t get there until and unless
You turn
