Shaking the Tree [7" Version]

Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour  Buy  License   

Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon
We are shakin' the tree Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon
We are shakin' the tree
Waiting your time, dreaming of a better life Waiting your time, you're more than just a wife
You don't have to do what your mother has done
She has done, this is your life, this new life has begun

It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon
We are shakin' the tree Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon
We are shakin' the tree
Turning the tide, you are on the incoming wave Turning the tide, you know you are nobody's slave
Find your sisters or brothers who can hear all the truth in what you say
They can support you when you're on your way

It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon
We are shakin' the tree Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon
We are shakin' the tree
Changing your ways, changing those surrounding you Changing your ways, more than any man can do
Open your heart, show him the anger and pain, so you heal Maybe he's looking for his womanly side, let him feel

You had to be so strong
And you do nothing wrong, nothing wrong at all
We're gonna break it down
We're gonna shake it down, shake it all around

?
No no no no no no
No no no no no no
No no no no no no

It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day

It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day

It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day
It's your day, a woman's day

You had to be so strong
You do nothing wrong, nothing wrong at all
We're gonna break it down
We're gonna shake it down, shake it all around
