Lyrics

I am a woman
and my place is in the home
And my home is the whole wide world

We are world shapers, we are change makers
We are potters spinning clay, we are dreamers of a new day

We are asking questions, we are opening up the door
We are searching, finding answers, we are wisdom seeking more
Rabbi, singer, teacher, professor, poet, preacher
Driving buses, styling hair, we are everywhere

We are women, we are sweeping the hearth
We are dreaming in the dark
We are weaving at the loom, we are the rhythms of the moon
We are world shapers, we are change makers
We are tenders of the earth, we are women giving birth

We are packing lunches, we are sewing the clothes you wear
We are sleeping on park benches, we are kneeling down in prayer
Doctor, dancer, scientist, carpenter and journalist
Telling stories, rocking chairs, we are everywhere

We are women, we are stirring the pot
We are keeping the fire hot
We are holding a child’s hand, we are the rhythms of the land
We are world shapers, we are change makers
We are potters spinning clay, we are dreamers of a new day

We are laughing, crying, we are taking the time to play
We are singing, we are sighing, we are making our own way
Politician, volunteer, refugee, and engineer
In the streets and on the air, we are everywhere
We are world shapers, we are change makers
We are potters spinning clay, we are dreamers of a new day
We are rule breakers, we are home makers
We are healers of the earth, we are mid-wives at the birth

We are women, and our place is in the home
And our home is the whole wide world
