The Wondrous Works of Women!

(Please sing-song this to the tune of Paul Simon's "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.")

Muckin out stalls, y’all. Cooking up a storm, yea.

Teaching the children life.

Women do it all well.


Paintin’ for a vignette today.

 Running the PTA.

Watching the folks grow old…

Run the office and keep it afloat.

Offering your time for free, sit with the elderly.

Read to your kids daily.  Women do it all well.

Cater to every whim, for parties or even him…

Design and decorate...

Brew the beans to percolate.  Women do it all well.

Make a menu and grocery shop...

Buy the gifts, shop till you drop.

Purge the pantry, start a compost. 

Begin a blog and outdo most!

Women do it all well.
Paint for joy and paint for peace. Offer your art to all in need.

Run the kids hither and yon, smiling and blessing years beyond…

Women do it all well.

Make a party and a crème brulee, the star in you sings in every way.

Here’s to chicks in all walks of life, keepin’ the faith, steady through strife.

Women do it all well.

(I know a woman behind every description in this ditty.  In fact many of you fall under many categories.  I love me my girlfriends.  They rock!  Cheers!!!!!!!!! )
