Versuri Peter Gabriel - Shaking The Tree

Album: Peter Gabriel - Shaking the Tree

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
