The Lyrics

This is a reference to the fact that the wives of several heads of state have recently been trying to get some attention!! Chere Blair's book was called "Speaking for Myself"..(.I have left some of the original lyrics in cos I was performing with a backing track which had backing vocals on the chorus so it had to be roughly the same) "Number Ten" is the UK equivalent of the White House
Now there was a time
When they used to say
That behind every great man
There had to be a great woman
Well now take that Cherie Blair
She’s thinks that she’s great too
So she headed straight out of Number Ten
and there’s something she has got to say to you she say

Mister I’m saying for myself
I’m standin' on my own two feet
And ringin' on my own bells
Mister I’m saying for myself

Now this is a song to denigrate
The constant subjugation of the female state
Madame Sarkosy
She thinks it’s her turn too
Woman to woman
She’s singin to you

Now there’s Hillary Clinton
She thinks she’s paid her dues
She was hot shot lawyer and a politician too
Everybody
Take a look around
Can you see can you can you see can you see
what I have found

Sisters are doing it doing it for themselves
Standin’ on their own two feet
And ringin' on their own bells
And Sisters are doing it for themselves

They won’t tell no stories
They won’t dish the dirt
But they know where all the bodies are buried
And they sure know how to hurt

And Sisters they’re doing it for themselves
Standin' on their own two feet
And ringin' on their own bell
And Sisters they’re doing it for themselves
Standin' on her their own two feet
And ringin' on their own bell

Now there was a time
When they used to say
That behind every great man
There had to be a great woman
Well now take that Cherie Blair
She’s thinks that she’s great too
So she headed straight out of number ten
and there’s something she has got to say to you she say

Mister I’m saying for myself
I’m standin' on my own two feet
And ringin' on my own bells
Mister I’m saying for myself x 4
