We Are Family

Sister Sledge/ Words & music by Bernard Edwards & Nile Rodgers. Arr. Jane Reeves for ChoirPlayer.com

 

Words adapted, so we include the fellahs. We all sing the same for most of this song. The vocal track will be useful for learning the verses. However, it's very "free" song, which we will onterpret.

 

Intro 16 bars

 

We are family, sisters, and my brothers with me

We are family, get up everybody and sing       X2

 

Verse 1.

             Everyone can see we’re together - as we walk on by                                                                                    (Hey)  And we fly, just like birds of a feather    -    I won’t tell no lie                                                                              

(All)     All the people - around us they say,  - can they be that close?

            Just let me state for the record,

            We’re giving love in a fam- ‘ly dose

                                               

 We are family, sisters and my brothers with me

We are family, Get up everybody and sing       X2

 

 Verse 2.

           Living life is fun and we’ve just begun - to get our share - of the world’s delights.

(High) High hopes we have for the fu- ture   -   And our goal’s in sight

(We)    No we don’t get depressed,

            Cos here’s what we call -    our golden rule.

 Have faith in you and the things you do,  You won’t go wrong - This is our fam’ly Jewe                                                     

 We are family, sisters and my brothers with me

We are family, Get up everybody and sing     x4

 

Outro: Sing it to me, - Get up, get up now -Sing it to me, Sing it to me - - Get up, get up now - Sing it to me -
