Andy: “All religion is male dominated, I prefer to worship at the soft female altar. My daughter's cheap school guitar gets another outing. Does anyone know where I can buy ‘girl’ incense?”

LyricsEdit

Album VersionEdit

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 VersionEdit

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
