Lyrics:Church Of Women

by XTC

Album version:

   A lie for a lie
   But a truth for the truth

   Church of Women
   Is made out of milk
   Which their love turns to butter
   Church of Women
   Will have you give praise
   With a laugh, bark and stutter
   Like us men, like us men
   They are nothing like us men
   Men have gargoyles round their hearts
   I'm on my knees but dancing
   Want to worship
   At the church of women
   Breathe 'em in
   Until my head goes spinning round
   Want to worship at the church
   Let me worship at the church of women

   Church of women
   Is making donations
   Of loving and giving
   Church of women
   Performing that miracle
   Raising the living
   Like us men, like us men
   Will they ever like us men
   Men have thorns around their minds
   I'm on my mount and preaching
   Want to worship
   At the church of women
   Breathe 'em in
   Until my head goes spinning round
   Want to worship at the church
   Let me worship at the church of women 

   A lie for a lie
   But a truth for the truth
   Give 'em back their house
   The walls, the doors
   The floors and roof
   And stop trying to diet 'em
   On wafers and wine
   And some myth we're in control
   Now let's put things right
   Let's multiply
   The loaves and kisses
   'Til we have enough to love and eat forever

   Want to worship at the church of women
   Breathe 'em in
   Until my head goes spinning round
   Want to worship at the church
   Let me worship at the church of women
   Worship at the church of women now


Demo version:

   Lie for a lie, but a truth for the truth

   Church of women is made out of milk
     which they love turns to butter, -er, -er
   Church of women would have you give praise
     with a laugh bark and stutter, -er, -er
   Like us men like us men they are nothing like us men
   Men have gargoyles round their hearts
   I'm on my knees but dancing

   Want to worship at the church of women
   Breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning around
   Want to worship at the church,
   Let me worship at the church of women

   Church of women is making omissions and loving and giving, -ing, -ing
   Church of women performing a miracle raising the living, -ing, -ing,
   Like us men like us men will they ever like us men?
   Men have thorns around their minds
   I'm on my mountain preaching

   Want to worship at the church of women
   Breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning around
   Want to worship at the church,
   Let me worship at the church of women

   Lie for a lie but a truth for the truth
   Give 'em back their house - the walls the doors the floors and roof
   Stop trying to diet on the wafer and wine and admit we're in control
   Now let's put things right,
   Let's multiply the love and kisses
   Til we have enough to love and eat forever

   Want to worship at the church of women
   Breathe 'em in until my head goes spinning around
   Want to worship at the church,
   Let me worship at the church of women
