  • First woman down was your mother
    She did condone how you behave
    All you could see was your father
    His disrespect was in her face

    Next woman down was your sister
    Her silence did corroborate
    She took her cues from the climate
    And never knew another way

    Who do you take me for

    Calling all woman haters
    We've lowered the bar on the
    Behavior that we will take come on now
    Calling all lady haters
    Why must you vilify us
    Are you willing to clean the slate woman down
    Woman down, oh

    Next woman down was your lover
    She takes your spite at value face
    Even her hair length and color
    Gives you the impulse to repeat

    Who do you take me for

    Calling all woman haters
    We've lowered the bar on the
    Behavior that we will take come on now
    Calling all lady haters
    Why must you vilify us
    Are you willing to clean the slate woman down
    Woman down, woman down, oh

    Next woman down is your daughter
    A stranger to being debased
    She has a new lease and limit
    On the abuse she'll tolerate

    Who do you take me for

    Calling all woman haters
    We've lowered the bar on the
    Behavior that we will take come on now
    Calling all lady haters
    Why must you vilify us
    Are you willing to clean the slate woman down
    Woman down
