Wise Woman ©Peggy van Zalm

Wise, wise, wise, wise woman say
when the four winds blow just let them blow your way
to take us to take us so far away
from the civilised world and it’s cynical worldly ways
Then perhaps you and I may begin again begin again
only completely completely begin again

Wise, wise woman’s way
is to settle the score, settle it all, settle it today
and let the struggle die, let the rise of tide yeah
draw you under swirling surrender so much to gain
Then perhaps you and I may begin again begin again
only completely completely begin again

ohhhhh

Wise woman say, hey what she say, what she say, what she say
take us won’t you take us so far away from the civilised world and its cynical worldly ways
said from the civilised world and its cynical worldly ways
from this civilised, civilised world
