Eurythmics

Eurythmics were a British music duo consisting of members Annie Lennox and David A. Stewart, now disbanded but known to reunite from time to time. Stewart and Lennox were both previously in the bands The Catch and The Tourists. Their musical style ranged from new wave and synthpop to pop rock and soft rock. Eurythmics originally came together in 1980 and disbanded in 1990. They reunited in 1999 and split again in 2005. The duo released their first album, In the Garden, in 1981 to little fanfare, but went on to achieve global success with their second album Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This), released in 1983.

Now there was a time when we 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 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
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, yeah
Woman to woman
We're singin' with you

The inferior sex had 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, hoh hoh

We say, 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
We ain't layin' plans
Don't ya know a man still loves a woman
And a woman still loves a man
(Just the same)

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Ah there was a time, ah 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
Go on girl, go for it, go for it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Step right to it girl
Sisters are doin' it, doin' it
Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves, ah, ah, ah
Doin' it, doin' it, doin' it, doin' it
Sisters are doin' it for themselves, yeah yeah
Sisters are doin' it for themselves
People pay to hear what we say
Standin' it on our own two feet, yeah
Bring it on down and back
Here we come now
