Notable lyrics

Some of them men think they freak this like we do
But no they don't
Make your check come at they neck,
Disrespect us no they won't
My persuasion can build a nation
Endless power, with our love we can devour
You'll do anything for me

Keys wanted to let women know they are super and they can do it—whatever it is—even when faced with many challenges.

Cause I am a SuperwomanYes I amYes she isEven when I'm a messI still put on a vestWith an S on my chestOh yesI'm a Superwoman
