Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sisters (Irving Berlin)
Subject: ADDPOP: Sisters (Irving Berlin)
Small misapprehension: This song was actually sung in the movie "White Christmas", first by Rosemary Clooney and Vera-Ellen, then in drag by Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye. It was written by Irving Berlin.

(Irving Berlin)

Sisters, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters
- Never had to have a chaperone, "No sir"
- I'm here to keep my eye on her

Caring, sharing ev'ry little thing that we are wearing
- When a certain gentleman arrived from Rome
- She wore the dress and I stayed home

All kinds of weather, we stick together, the same in the rain or sun
Two diff'rent faces, but in tight places, we think and we act as one
Uh huh

Those who've seen us know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up, but no one can
Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister
And Lord help the sister who comes between me and my man

Sister, don't come between me and my man
