"Every song I have translated is well translated, the one who works on the very difficult songs with me is Dee Shipman. I know her telephone number by heart, and her fax. It goes back and forth - 'No! I don't like this word!' And she comes back and says 'Because you don't understand English!' So I have to convince her and she has to convince me, and the rapport is fantastic." 

- Charles Aznavour

The Women's Credo
(Dee Shipman / Petula Clark)

SUSANNAH 
For you it's so easy.........
You seem to know yourself

SERENA
And like yourself.........

ABIGAIL
Like myself!?
I have to force myself
To face myself some days
Those days I'm too lonely to speak
Too weak
In need of affection
I seek 
Some sign or direction
I am no exception
I'm not unique
I am nothing special

I am the same as you
You cut me, do I not bleed?
But touch me with love
And I'm healed
I feel the strength to continue
I'm real again
I can win through
You're the same within you
And you're unique
Each of us is special

In her own way........
Believe what I say...
It's true

SUSANNAH
Yes, it's true
I can be as sure as you

ABIGAIL
There is nothing we can't do

SERENA
I am just the same as you

ABIGAIL, SUSANNAH, SERENA
So what is skin?
For who are kin?
More close than we?

We have the will for life
We cry
But try again
Surviving our weakness
We're strong
The wrongs men do may outlive them
They long for us to forgive them
We pick up the pieces
We are unique
Each of us is special

In her own way...........
Believe what we say..........
It's true!
