Real Live Woman
by Trisha Yearwood



I don’t buy the lines in magazines that tell me what I’ve got to be; don’t base my life on a movie screen, I don’t fit the mode society has planned.
Don’t need to be 19 years old or starve myself for some weight I’m told; or turn men’s heads, been down that road, and I thank God I finally know just who I am.
I ain’t a movie star, may never see the view from where they are. And this old town may be as far as I’m going.
What he’ll hold tonight in his hands, he swears is so much better than, anything that this old world can show him.

CHORUS: I’m a real live woman, in love with this man I see lying here next to me, lost in the way that he’s holding this real, live woman. In the arms of a man where I’ll fall asleep knowing there’s nothing on earth he loves more than, this real, live woman.

I work 9 to 5 and I can’t relate to millionaires who somehow fate has smiled upon and fortune made their common lives a better place to be.
And I no longer justify reasons for the way that I behave. I offer no apologies for the things that I believe and say….and I like it that way.

CHORUS: I’m a real live woman, in love with this man I see lying here next to me, lost in the way that he’s holding this real, live woman. In the arms of a man where I’ll fall asleep knowing there’s nothing on earth he loves more than, this real, live woman.
