Eurythmics – Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves lyrics

Now there was a time when we used to say that behind every great man there had to be a great woman
But in these times of change you know that it's no longer true
So we're comin' out of the kitchen 'cause there's something we forgot to say to you
We say, "Sisters are doin' it for themselves"
Standin' on their own two feet and ringin' on their own bells
We say, "Sisters are doin' it for themselves"

Now this is a song to celebrate the conscious liberation of the female state
Mothers, daughters and their daughters too
Woman to woman we're singing with you
The inferior s** has got a new exterior
We got doctors, lawyers (Yes we do), politicians too
Everybody take a look around
Can you see, can you see, can you see there's a woman right next to you
We say, "Sisters are doin' it for themselves" (Oh yes we are)
Standin' on their own two feet an ringin' on their own bells
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Now we ain't makin' stories and we ain't layin' plans
Don't you know that a man still loves a woman and a woman still loves a man just the same way

Sisters are doin' it for themselves
There was a time (There was a time), when they used to say (When they used to say)
That behind every great man there had to be a great woman
In these times of change you know that it's no longer true
So we're comin' out of the kitchen 'cause there's something we forgot to say to you
We say, "Sisters are doin' it for themselves"
Standin' on their own two feet and ringin' on their own bells
Sisters are doin' it for themselves (C'mon yeah, go for it, go for it)
Sisters (Sisters) are doin' it for themselves (Step on, c'mon do it girl)
Sisters are doin' it for themselves (Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it)
Sisters are doin' it for themselves (Doin' it, do it, doin' it, doin' it)
Sisters are doin' it for themselves (Doin' it for themselves) (Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it)
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
I said, "Sisters are doin' it for themselves" (People pay, hear what we say)
Standin' on their own two feet an ringin' on their own bells (Sisters are doin' it for themselves)
Here we come now, doin' it, doin' it, we're doin' it, doin' it (Sisters are doin' it for themselves)
