"TALKING 'BOUT OUR FAMILY"

Intro:
Come on, come on, come on. [Oh yeah!]
Come and love your brothers.
Come on, come on, come on. [That's right!]
Come and love your sisters.

Chorus 1
Helping our brothers, I'm talking about our Family.
Helping our sisters, that's the way it's meant to be.
Helping our brothers, I'm talking about our Family.
Helping our sisters, that's the way it's meant to be.

Verse 1 [Rap]
-Do to your brother, what you'd have him do to you,
And help your sister, when she's going through something that if you had to face,
You'd want someone to put themselves in your place.
So when you see that your brother's in trouble,
You gotta be there, gotta be there on the double.
And take it on yourself to go and help them out,
'Cause after all, that's what love is all about.

Repeat Chorus 1

Intermission 1 [Rap]
[Telephone caller:]
Ah, hello ... yeah, I got that, but what if they don't want help,
You know ... it's obvious they need it,
But they just won't admit it. Could you clarify that? Thanks!

Oh yeah, that's a good one! Yo, A.J., you wanna give it a shot?

Verse 2 [Rap]
Well, you know it's true, and you've seen it sometimes,
We're talking about the weary who faint in their minds.
But just pray to the One Whose mercies abound,
And with His hand, He'll reach down, and turn 'em around.
His Love will then speak straight to their hearts,
And by praying for them, you've done, you've done your part.
Hey, brothers, do you get the drift? [Yeah!]
[These are the deeds of the day.]

Chorus 2
Brothers [brothers], that's our Family.
Oh we're lovin' our sisters [sisters], that's the way it's meant to be.
Lovin' our brothers [brothers] in our Family,
Lovin' our sisters [sisters], that's the way it's meant to be.

Bridge
--Do to others as you'd have them do to you,
Show them love and they will show you love, too.
With the same measure that you meet,
It will be measured to you.

Music break: --[Repeat during solos]

Chorus 3
Brothers, I'm talking about our Family.
Helping our sisters, that's the way it's meant to be.
Brothers, I'm a talking about our Family.
Lovin' our sisters, that's the way it's meant.

Intermission 2 [Rap]
Ah yeah, and there's lot's more where that came from.
In fact, here's my man B. to break it down for ya. Take it away, B., hey!
Hey, what's up with the music? ... Oh, here we go!

Verse 3 [Rap]
Yeah, well, Love suffereth long, and is kind,
It isn't puffed up in pride
Indeed, 'cause it vaunteth not itself
Even when tempers get hot.
Hey, and by the way, it doesn't repay an unkind word with one of its kind.
In fact, to faults it seems it's rather blind,
But strong enough to bear all things,
It never fails, 'cause that's what it means.
To live for others, seek not your own,
'Cause your life ain't yours, it's simply on loan
From the One Who put us here to love.
Yo, is my meaning clear? [Yeah!]
I agree with that. It makes sense.
Come on, come on, come on, [Let's do it!]
Come and love your brothers.
Come on, come on, come on, [Oh, yeah!]
Come and love your sisters.

Chorus 4
Brothers, talking about our Family.
Helping our sisters, that's the way it's meant to be.
Brothers, talking about our Family.
Helping our sisters, that's the way it's
meant to be.

Verse 4 [Rap]
This is what the Lord does, He does it all the time,
He helps us in our lives, and makes His Love to shine.
So do yourself a favor, and take a little tip,
Extend your love to others, go and do something legit.
So here in conclusion, we just wanna say,
Brothers, remember, it's a brand new day!
And there are many ways to show love, as you know,
So give it out everywhere, practice love as you go.

Chorus 5
Brothers, I'm talking about our Family.
Helping our sisters, that's the way it's meant to be
Helping our brothers, I'm talking about our Family.
Helping our sisters, that's the way it's
meant to be.

Rap
[Underneath last line of chorus 5]
From my brother to my sister, to my sister's brother's mother,
From my brother to my father, to my mother's sister's brother.

Ending
[Spoken]
If we're seeing eye to eye on these issues,
then you'll agree with me that this needs to be put into action, pronto!
