"We Are Family" as written by and Bernard/rodgers Edwards....
We are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing

We are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing

Everyone can see we're together
As we walk on by
(And) and we fly just like birds of a feather
I won't tell no lie

(All) all of the people around us they say
Can they be that close
Just let me state for the record
We're giving love in a family dose

We are family (Hey, y'all)
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing (sing it to me)

We are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up everybody and sing

Living life is fun and we've just begun
To get our share of this world's delights
(High) high hopes we have for the future
And our goal's in sight

(We) no, we don't get depressed
Here's what we call our golden rule
Have faith in you and the things you do
You won't go wrong, oh no
This is our family jewel

We are family (hey, sing it to me)
I got all my sisters with me
We are family (oh, I can hear you now)
Get up everybody and sing

Get up everybody and sing (Get up and sing it to me)

We are family
I got all my sisters with me (we're having fun)
We are family
Get up everybody and sing

Get up, get up, get up and sing it to me

Hey hey, oh hey hey hey

    General CommentThis is CRIMINAL...such an old song that once was a hit yet no comments??? Just disgusting. Never did like the song, though, but it's a classic...a disco hit that lit up the dance floors in the smoke-filled culbs with all the mirror balls and polyesther. To me, the song is self-explanatory...hanging out and having fun with close family as we hope for a bright future. (I'm just happy to have sent my family packing today...love is sometimes best in small doses;)

    General CommentActually, the gay community adopted this song a long time ago. We even use the word "family" to mean "gay" in conversation.
