Older Woman

Lyrics by: Rose DeShaw
Gaggle: Kingston
Tune: Merry Widow Waltz

Let us celebrate the older woman nowTo the troubles in her life
She will not bow
Earning every wrinkle
Striving to be strong
Sharing laughter, friendship
All the day is long

2) Older women, overseas, the media show
War & sadness in their eyes
The truth they know
Fighting for their families
Willing peace to be
Standing tall while losing all
They call to me

3) Older women changed our world
They won the vote
Built careers, ran corporations
And, we note
Took on politicans
So to change our laws
Fighting on for justice
They win our applause

4) Here’s to older women
All they things they do
Networking, supporting, sharing
Their lives through
Wisdom comes with aging
Every grey hair won
Years unfold and still we feel
We’ve just begun!
