He was a strong (strong) minded man
He had a family and a master plan
He was a teacher of many, a student of few
He had the spirit to do what he had to do

And he was like a father to me
He was like a father to me
He was like a father to me
He was like the father of my other family

She was a strong-willed woman with a heart of gold
She had the best damn stories that were ever told
Hipped me to what I needed to know, when I was just 10 years old
And everything from her kitchen had soul

And she was like a mother to me
She was like a mother...
She was like a mother to me
She was like the mother of my other family

(Blow it Tom!)
- Saxophone solo -

He is hands down the coolest that I've ever known
Some of the things that he's said have shaped the way I've grown
The discipline of a soldier, and style galore
And the party never starts til he walks through the door

And he's just like a brother to me
He's just like a brother to me
He's just like a brother to me
He's just like the brother of my other family

Hey... oh... hey... oooh...

She is the woman that I call when I'm all confused
About the women in my life who don't play by the rules
She always gives it to me straight, right down the line
Sometimes I wish she wasn't so damn fine!

'Cause she's just like a sister to me
She's just like a sister to me
She's just like a sister to me
She's just like the sister of my other family

She's just like a sister to me
He's just like a brother
She was like a mother
He was like a father to me
Oh... (Other family)

(If you ever...)
(If you ever have an opportunity...)
(***********)
(You better treat 'em like family...)
(You better treat 'em like... treat 'em like...)
