Lyrics

Independant Woman

Intro: 8 bars

Verse One: 8b
Oh baby I’m feeling blue
But that’s ok;
I don’t want any help from you.
And I know I’ve been a-lookin’ confused
But I’ve got a news flash for you
I don’t want to be rescued!

Bridge 1: 8b
And maybe I was sending out the vibe
That I needed a shining knight
But baby I’m damn sure I don’t need
Men in armor any longer
And maybe I was looking kind of weak
You thought you’d sweep me off my feet
But my life is complete.

Chorus A: 7b
I’m an independent woman
I gotta do it my own way
I’m an independent woman
Thanks for stopping by anyway
I’m an independent woman
I’m standing on my own two feet today
I’m independent… An independent woman

Intro: 4b
Verse 2: 8b
Oh, it wasn’t too long ago
I gave myself to a man
And I surrendered control
Well let me tell you something,
I barely survived the blow
Cause when he finished with me
I was a shell of myself
Oh baby I was hollow.

Bridge 2: 8b
So sorry if you’re thinkin’ I’m a bitch
But I ain’t gonna scratch your itch
Ain’t gonna lose myself in you
Cause my preservation is elation
And baby I’m not gonna change my mind
And ask you to rescue me this time
No means no so you might as well go!

Chorus B: 8b
I’m an independent woman
I gotta do it my own way
I’m an independent woman
Thanks for stopping by anyway
I’m an independent woman
I’m standing on my own two feet today
I’m independent, Independent, Independent
An independent woman

Solo: 8b
Chorus A: 7b

Outro: 24b+
I don’t need a strong man to hold my hand
I don’t need your support to take a stand
I’ve got a powerful mind, heart, body and soul
I am unique I am strong, I am whole.
I don’t need your approval to feel complete
I’m standing on my own two feet
I’m not a half looking for a whole
I am perfect and I am in control

Chorus 3X to fade
