Song: “My Sister” Performed by Reba McIntire

    As an antidote to our previous post on sisters, “A Mother’s Regret: When Grown Siblings Don’t Get Along,” here’s a song with the refrain, My sister, my friend. It’s reminiscent of Cat’s in the Cradle because the women don’t make enough time for each other in their busy lives, yet family is still important to them.


Hey girl, it's me, just called to tell you hi
Call me when you get this
Haven't talked lately, so hard to find the time
Give the boys a big kiss
Tell them that I miss them
By the way, I miss you too
I was thinking just today
About how we used to play
Barbie dolls and makeup
Tea Parties, dress up
I remember how we'd fight
And make up and laugh all night
Wish we were kids again
My sister, my friend
Oh yeah before I forget I met someone
I think I really like him
I was just wondering if I'm jumping the gun
By going out on a limb
And invite him home for Christmas
To meet the family
Seems like just yesterday,
You brought home oh what's his name
He had been drinking, what were you thinking?
After dinner he passed out,
We can laugh about it now
'Cause we've learned a lot since then
My sister, my friend
Do you think you could come and
See me sometime soon? (see me sometime soon)
We could just hang out like we used to
It's late and I should go,
But I can't hang up the phone
Until I tell you what I don't tell you enough
Even though at times it seemed
We were more like enemies
I'd do it all again
My sister, my friend
Oh, my sister, my friend.
