Midwife - Song Lyrics

Midwife - Copyright 2006 Charles Sjolander
Midwife 

Written 1995

Verse 1:
goodbye to forceps and ankles bound
sometimes you need to feel your feet on the ground
goodbye to hospitals powered by greed
loving hands are all we need

Refrain:
someone with patients who understands 
we need more gentle hands
giving birth and giving life 
we all want a midwife

Verse 2:
goodbye to cutting to make more room 
inadequate bodies they always assume
goodbye to drugs that flood our veins 
in the name of progress only numbness remains

Refrain.
