The Avett Brothers Lyrics


"New Woman's World"

It used to be a man’s world but we didn’t treat it right
It used to be a man’s world but all we did was fight
I’m glad it’s finally in the hands of the women and the girls
I can’t wait to see what they do with what’s left of the world

Ladies I’m sorry but we couldn’t seem to learn
How to live in peace, so Rome had to burn
And we cared about clean air but there was money to be made
And breathing’s nice but it don’t compare with getting paid

It used to be a man’s world but we didn’t treat it right
It used to be a man’s world but all we did was fight
I’m glad it’s finally in the hands of the women and the girls
I can’t wait to see what they do with what’s left of the world

Please I beg your pardon but we got a bit confused
Some of our brothers thought our sisters were born for getting used
Then we made the assumption that’s how it should be done
Then tried to excuse ourselves in the name of fun

Don’t get me wrong, hope ain’t fully gone
Scores of decent men built the road I’m standing on
But a lot of it has crumbled through prideful mistakes
And ashes cover much of what the flooding didn’t take

I know that we are giving you a lot to straighten out
The silver lining broke away from the thundercloud
And it took us a few thousand years to make a mess so fine
I bet y’all sort it out in less than half the time

It used to be a man’s world, excess in the extreme
It used to be a man’s world but we ran out of steam
We couldn’t seem to reach the grace that’s born in every girl
Still I hope that can lend a hand in this new woman’s world

Let me know if I can help out in this new woman’s world
