    Lyrics

    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 want 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

    Turning the tide, you are on the incoming wave
    Turning the tide, you know you are nobody's slave
    [ 1989 version - Find your Brothers and sisters ]
    [ 1990 version - Find your sisters and 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
    Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin' the tree

    [ extra lyrics from 1989 12" remix ]

    There's nothing to gain when there's nothing to be lost
    There's nothing to gain if you stay behind and count the cost
    Make the decision that you can be who you can be
    You can be
    Tasting the fruit come to the Liberty Tree
    It's your day - a woman's day
    It's your day - a woman's day

    [ end of extra lyrics from 12" remix ]

    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 to break it down
    We have to shake it down
    Shake it all around

    Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin' the tree
    Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin' the tree
    Souma Yergon, Sou Nou Yergon, We are shakin' the tree
