Paroles "Sisters Are Doin' It for Themselves" - Eurythmics

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 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
Said, 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, yeah
Woman to woman
We're singin' with you

The inferior sex had 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, hoh hoh

We say, sisters are doin' it for themselves, oh yes we are
Standin' on their own two feet
And ringin' on their own bells
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Now we ain't makin' stories
We ain't layin' plans
Don't ya know a man still loves a woman
And a woman still loves a man
(Just the same)

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Ah there was a time, ah 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 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
Go on girl, go for it, go for it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Step right to it girl
Sisters are doin' it, doin' it
Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves, ah, ah, ah
Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves, yeah yeah
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
People pay to hear what we say
Standin' it on our own two feet, yeah
Bring it on down and back
Here we come now
