I Feel Like a Woman

Let's go girls! I'm goin' out tonight
I'm feeling alright
Gonna let it all hang out
Wanna make some noise
Really raise my voice
Yeah, I wanna scream and shout

No inhibitions, make no conditions
Get a little outa line
I ain't gonna act politically correct
I only wanna have a good time

CHORUS: The best thing about bein' a woman
Is the prerogative to have a little fun
Oh, oh, oh, go totally crazy
Forget I'm a lady
Men's shirts, short skirts
Oh, oh, oh, really go wild, and doin' it in style

Oh, oh, oh, oh,get in the action, feel the attraction
Colour my hair, do what I dare
Oh, oh, oh, I wannabe free
Yeah to feel the way I feel
Man! I feel like a woman!

The girls need a break
Tonight we're gonna take
The chance to get out on the town
We don't need romance, we only wanna dance
We gonna let our hair hang down

CHORUS: The best thing about bein' a woman
Is the prerogative to have a little fun
Oh, oh, oh, go totally crazy
Forget I'm a lady
Men's shirts, short skirts
Oh, oh, oh, really go wild
Yeah, doin' it in style
Oh, oh, oh, get in the action
Feel the attraction
Colour my hair, do what I dare
Oh, oh, oh, I wanna be free
Yeah, to feel the way I feel
Man! I feel like a woman!

CHORUS: The best thing about bein' a woman
Is the prerogative to have a little fun, fun, fun
Go totally crazy, forget I'm a lady
Men's shirts, short skirts
Really go wild, and doin' it in style
Oh, oh, oh, get in the action, feel the attraction
Colour my hair, do what I dare
Wanna be free to feel the way I feel
Man, I feel like a woman

If there is any truth to the old adage that hardship builds character, Shania Twain would be a brilliant example of it. Eileen Regina Edwards, better known as Shania Twain, was born in Windsor, Ontario, in 1965. When Eileen was two years old, her parents divorced. Her mother moved her two daughters to Timmins, Ontario, where she married a First Nations Cree, Jerry Twain. Twain adopted the two girls legally changing their names to Twain.

Blending into a family of five children, Shania Twain's hardships continued. The Twain family had a limited income, so there were constant food shortages. In addition to chopping firewood and hunting game, Mrs. Twain had to drive the family almost 700 kilometers to Toronto to get assistance from a homeless shelter.

At a young age, Shania Twain began supplementing the family income by working at McDonalds and singing in local bars and night clubs. Although she hated the smoky and alcohol-fuelled venues, her passion for music and performing propelled her forward. She credits her early hardships for preparing her for the trials of life as a professional musician.

Twain began songwriting at the age of ten. Described by classmates as quiet and reclusive, she derived comfort by working creatively with words and weaving a songs from them. As she grew older, she began to work in the woods with other Cree and Ojibwa workers in her father's reforestation business. During breaks, Shania could be found in solitary reverie deep in the woods with her guitar, her dog and her songs.

Twain's talent was discovered early. At thirteen, she was selected to perform on CBC's Tommy Hunter Show. From there, a string of teenage bands were formed where she sang lead vocals. With her last band, she toured the province of Ontario landing in Toronto where a local disc jockey spotted her and wrote an article about her powerful voice in a country music magazine. He took her to Nashville, the capital of country music. It wasn't long before Shania Twain was "on her way", the English translation for the term, "shania".

In Nashville, she met a songwriter-producer whom she later married, Robert John "Mutt" Lange. They produced her second and third albums containing the hit singles, "From This Moment On" and "Man, I Feel Like a Woman". There was no returning to the woods after that.

Her third album, "Come On Over," went skyrocketing up the country music charts selling 34 million copies internationally. Over the next two years, it won 4 Grammy Awards and multiple Juno Awards.

During her career, more award-winning music was produced by the team of Twain and Lange. Her fame took her to U.S. television appearances where she performed on music shows and opened national sports events. Among her many charitable activities, Shania Twain will be proudly carrying the 2010 Winter Olympic torch for Canada when it travels through Timmins, Ontario, in January 2010.

Shania Twain's music has brought her many awards and honours that cannot all be listed in this short space: 39 BMI Awards for her songwriting, 26 Country Music Awards, 12 Juno Awards, 5 American Music Awards, 5 Grammy Awards and many other minor but important honours. On November 18, 2005, she was invested into the Canadian Order of Canada.
