SISters are doin’ it for themselves…
(With apologies to Annie Lennox and Aretha Franklin)

Now there was a time when they used to say
That behind every great spy there had to be a valid warrant.

But in these times of change you know that it’s no longer true
So we’re comin’ out of the back room
‘Cause there’s something we forgot to say to you

We say:

SISters are doin’ it for themselves,
Goin’ on their own gut instincts an’ makin’ all their own calls.
SISters are doin’ it for themselves!

Now this is a song to celebrate
The invasive powers of the National State.
Citizens
Protesters and left wing bloggers
Too

SISter ops targets
We’re singing with you.
The invasive state has got new freedoms now.

We got minorities
Lawyers
Politicians too,
Tryin’ so hard to warn us –

Everybody
Take a look around
They can see,
Can you see,

Can you see that SIS bug hidden right next to you?
We say: SISters are doin’ it for themselves.

Now we ain’t makin’ stories and we ain’t layin’ plans
‘Cause 48 hours ain’t enough to do either of them.

Now they may say
This is just for a while
But a civil liberty trampled
Usually proves hard to revive.

And that means that –

SISters are doin’ it for themselves.
Now they don’t need nobody’s say so –
SISters are doin’ it for themselves!
