lyrics

It’s so hard to be a woman in this world
It’s so hard to be a woman in this world
They will take you and they’ll break you
And they’ll try to violate you
It’s so hard to be a woman in this world

Do you think you have a destiny
Do you think you have a choice
They will not give you a weapon
They won’t listen to your voice

It’s so hard to be a woman in this world
It’s so hard to be a woman in this world
Doesn’t help you to be beautiful
When life’s so short and brutal
It’s so hard to be a woman in this world

Take a long and slender needle
Start to swing it like a sword
So you’ll never be a lady
You can learn to be a lord

It’s so hard to be a woman in this world
It’s so hard to be a woman in this world
You will wed the highest bidder
And he’ll bed you till you wither
It’s so hard to be a woman in this world

about

The Bushwick Book Club Brooklyn, New York

We started in January 2009 playing songs written in response to Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. We haven't stopped since. We've written & performed songs inspired by everything from "On The Origin of Species" to Dr. Seuss to Raymond Carver. There are BBCs popping up nationwide now. Bushwick Book Club Seattle started in 2010 & is run by Geoff Larson. Our nerdy dare-devilry knows no bounds. ... more
