I'm so vain...*

Annie Lennox

Em resposta ao governo paternalista que voltou ao ataque com as quotas para medíocres, cantamos em coro com Annie Lennox que as "Sisters are Doin' It for Themselves". Obrigadinho na mesma pela oferta.

Now there was a time when they used to say
That behind every - great man.
There had to be a - great woman.
But in this times have changed 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.

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 - can you see - can you see
There’s a woman right next to you.

Chorus repeats.

Now we ain’t makin’ stories
And we ain’t layin’ plans
’cause a man still loves a woman
And a woman still loves a man
(just the same, though)

Eurythmics, Sisters are doin' it for themselves

*I probably think there's no quota for this song.
