Lyrics

Now there was a time
when they 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 coming 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

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 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 there's a woman right next to you

now we ain't makin' stories
and we ain't laying plans
don't you know that a man
still loves a woman
and a woman still loves a man
just the same though
