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
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 said, "Sisters are doin' it for themselves"
Standin' on their own two feet
And ringin' on their own bells
We 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, oh yeah
Woman to woman, we're singin' 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?

We said, "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 and we ain't layin' plans
Don't you know that a man still loves a woman
When a woman still loves a man?
Just a same though

Sisters are doin' it for themselves
There was a time 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
Sisters are doin' it for themselves, yes

Sisters are doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves, oh oh yes
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Sisters are doin' it for themselves

I said, "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 for themselves
