Eurythmics & Aretha Franklin – Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves lyrics

Now there was a time when they 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 foryot to say to you
We say:

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Standin' on their own two feet an ringin' on their own bells.
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
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
.. .

Now we ain't makin' stories and we ain't layin' plans

'Cause a man still loves a woman and a woman still loves a man -
Just the same though -

Sisters are doin' it for themselves.
Now there was a time when they used to say. ..
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
.. .
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
.. .
