(David Stewart / Annie Lennox)


Now there was a time when we used to say
that behind every "great man"
there had to be a "great woman".
Now 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.
Ringin' on their own bells.
Sisters are doin' it for themselves.
(Let me tell you now)

Now here 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" got a new exterior, yeah.
We got doctors, lawyers, politicians too.
Everybody take a look around, yeah.
Can't you see, can't you see, can't you see.
There's a woman right next to you.

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.
It's just the same though.
