If you call am woman
African woman no go 'gree
She go say, she go say, "I be Lady o"

[Chorus] She go say, "I be Lady o"!

She go say, "I be Lady"
She go say, "I no be woman"
She go say, "Market woman na woman"
She go say, "I be Lady"

I wan tell you about Lady
I wan tell you about Lady
I wan tell you about Lady

She go say him equal to man
She go say him get power like man
She go say anything man do himself fit do

I never tell you finish
I never tell you finish
I never tell you finish
I never tell you finish
I never tell you…

She go wan take cigar before anybody
She go wan make you open door for am
She go wan make man wash plate for am for kitchen

She wan salute man she go sit down for chair
She wan salute man she go sit down for chair
She wan sit down for table before anybody
She wan sit down for table before anybody
She wan a piece of meat before anybody
She wan a piece of meat before anybody

Call am for dance, she go dance Lady dance
Call am for dance, she go dance Lady dance
African woman go dance, she go dance the fire dance
African woman go dance, she go dance the fire dance

She know him man na master
She go cook for am
She go do anything he say

But Lady no be so
But Lady no be so
But Lady no be so
But Lady no be so

Lady na master
Lady na master
Lady na master
