Sisters are doing it for themselves

Lyrics

Now, there was a time
when they used to say
that behind ev’ry 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.

We say, 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, woh yeah,
woman to woman,
we’re singing with you, ooh, ooh.
The “inferior sex” has got a new exterior.
We got doctors, lawyers, politicians too,
ooh ooh ooh, ooh.
Ev’rybody, take a look around.
Can you see, can you see, can you see,
there’s a woman right next to youou.
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.

The Duhks

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
just the same, though.
Ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh ooh.
Sisters are doin’ it
for themselves.

There was a time,
oh, when they used to say
that behind ev’ry 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 something 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 themselvesselves.
Sisters are doin’ it, doin’ it,
doin’ it, doin’ it, doin’ it, doin’ it…
Sisters are doin’ it for themselves,
uhhuh, uhhuh, yeah.
Sisters are doin’ it for themselves,
uhhuh, uhhuh, uhhuh, yeah.
Sisters are doin’ it
for themselves.
I say, yeah, yeah,
Sisters are doin’ it for themselves,
standin’ on their…
Sisters are doin’ it
for themselves.

Alive and well and residing in Malawi, the action
