Eurythmics Feat. 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 somethin' 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

Now this is a song to celebrate
The conscious liberation of the female state
Mothers, daughters and their daughters too, oh yeah
Woman to woman we're singin' with you

The "Inferior Sex" 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

Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Standin' on our own two feet
And ringin' on our own bells
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 a same though

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

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 somethin' 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

Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Sisters are doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
