ARETHA FRANKLIN lyrics - Who's Zoomin' Who?

Sisters Are Doin' It For Themselves

Original and similar 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 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" 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. 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 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 a same though)

Modern Woman

BILLY JOEL "The Bridge"
You see her sitting with her coffee and her paper With her high top sneakers of Italian design With a long cool stare she aggravates the tension Makes up her face while she makes up her mind Now you're in trouble, maybe she's an intellectual What if she figures out you're not very smart Or maybe she's the quiet type who's into heavy metal Boy, you got to get it settled Cause she's breaking your heart Don't try to put on an act You can't do that to a modern woman And you're an old fashioned man She understands the things you're doin' She's a modern woman She looks sleek and she seems so professional She's got a lot of confidence, it's easy to see You want to make a move But you feel so inferior Cause under that exterior Is someone who's free She's got style and she's got her own money So she's not another honey you can quickly disarm She's got the eyes that make you realize She won't be hypnotized by your usual charm You've got your plan of attack That won't attract the modern woman When you're an old fashioned man She understands the things you're doin' She's a modern woman Time goes by and you're sharing an apartment She says she loves you but she doesn't know why In the morning she leaves you with your coffee and your paper It's a strange situation for an old fashioned guy But times have changed Things are not the same, baby You overcame such a bad attitude Rock and roll just used to be for kicks And nowadays it's politics And after 1986 what else could be new You got to learn to relax And face the facts of modern woman And you're an old fashioned man She understands the things you're doin' She's a modern woman

When A Man Loves A Woman

JERRY LEE LEWIS "Southern Roots"
When a man loves a woman Can't keep his mind on nothing else He'll trade the world For the good thing he's found If she's bad he can't see it She can do no wrong Turn his back on his best friend If he put her down When a man loves a woman Spend his very last dime Trying to hold on to what he needs He'd give up all his comfort Sleep out in the rain If she said that's the way it ought to be Well, this man loves a woman I gave you everything I had Trying to hold on to your precious love Baby, please don't treat me bad When a man loves a woman Down deep in his soul She can bring him such misery If she plays him for a fool He's the last one to know Loving eyes can't ever see When a man loves a woman He can do no wrong He can never own some other girl Yes when a man loves a woman I know exactly how he feels 'Cause baby, baby, baby, you're my world When a man loves a woman

Try

JASON ISBELL "Sirens Of The Ditch"
You can't make a woman sleep alone You can't make a woman sleep alone You can't give her lovin' on the phone You can't make her stay her ass at home But you try, don't you? You try, don't you? Just want to die, don't you When she runs? You can't tell her nothing she don't know You can't tell her nothing she don't know She'll chop down every living thing you grow But you can't take her with you when you go But you try, don't you? You try, don't you? Just want to die, don't you, When she runs? Take a year and go back home Where the wind comes sweepin' Through the plains You ain't seen her in awhile, But she loves you just the same You can't stop that ringin' in your ear You can't stop that ringin' in your ear You can't make the highway disappear You can't make her love you out of fear But you try, don't you? You try, don't you? Just want to die, don't you, When she runs? Take a year and go back home Where the wind comes sweepin' Through the plains You ain't seen her in awhile But she loves you just the same

Oh, sometimes I feel a little lonely Well, I got a woman way over town She's good to me now, all right I got a woman way cross town She's good for me, oh yeah. Oh, she gives me money when I'm in need Yes, you know, she's a kind of friend indeed I got a woman way over town Oh, she's good for me now, alright. She say she loves me early in the mornin' Just for me, yes she do She say she loves me early in the mornin' Just for me, oh yeah. She say she loves me, lordy, just for me You know she loves me so tenderly I got a woman way over town Oh, she's good to me now, alright. She's there to love me all day and night She never grumbles or fusses, always treats me right Never runnin' in the streets, leavin' me alone She knows a woman's place Is right back there with her hangin' 'round the home. Got a woman way over town Oh, she's good for me now, alright. I got a woman way over town She's good to me, can't you see? Well, she's my baby, don't you understand I-I-I I-I-I I'm her lovin' man? I got a woman way over town Oh, she's good to me now, alright.

Blue Blooded Woman

ALAN JACKSON "Here In The Real World"
She loves a violin, I love a fiddle We go separate ways but we meet in the middle Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand A blue blooded woman and a redneck man The lady I love loves silk and satin She was raised uptown with a silver spoon Well, I was born on a farm just south of Jackson We had an old Ford tractor and a country moon She loves a violin, I love a fiddle We go separate ways but we meet in the middle Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand A blue blooded woman and a redneck man She's Saks Fifth Avenue perfection Caviar and dignified Well, I live my life in Wal-Mart fashion And I like my sushi southern fried She loves a violin, I love a fiddle We go separate ways but we meet in the middle Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand A blue blooded woman and a redneck man She loves a violin, I love a fiddle We go separate ways but we meet in the middle Don't see eye to eye but we're hand in hand A blue blooded woman and a redneck man She's a blue blooded woman, I'm a redneck man.
