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 comin' out of the kitchen

'Cause there's something we foryot to say to you
We say:

Sisters are doin' it for themselves

Standin' on their own two feet an ringin' on their own bells.
Sisters are doin' it for themselves.

Now this is a song to celebrate
