Lyrics
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
(x4)
