Sisters Are Doing 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 oh, 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.

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 sex" 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

Sisters are doing' it for themselves
standing' on their own two feet
and ringing' on their own bells
Sisters are doing' it
for themselves

Now we ain't making' 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, though

Sisters are doin' it
for themselves.
