lyrics

Make a chain across the land
Reach out and we join our hands
Many hands make easy work
Together we can change the world
Together we can change the world
Together we can change the world

The world is wide but we are strong
United as we sing this song
A song we sing to celebrate
The art of women who create
The art of women who create
The art of women who create

See a vision, dream an image
Stretch our wings to fly
When we join our voices
We are swans up in the sky

With open eyes and open hearts
We honor women and our art
Art and strength and self-respect
Celebrate create connect
Celebrate create connect
Celebrate create connect

See a vision, dream an image
Stretch our wings to fly
When we join our voices
We are swans up in the sky

Celebrate create connect
Celebrate create connect
Celebrate create connect
Celebrate create connect
