Song Lyric Sunday 27th September

Jim’s theme for September 27, 2020 is Brother/Sibling/Sister

I did this post for the SLS challenge in April 2018. The video is still available and will remain one of my favourite tracks from the Streisand/Kristofferson a Star is Born.

Rather than cheat and reblog this one though, I’ve selected another for Jim’s challenge:

Like Sister and Brother by the Drifters is a hit from 1973 and was a popular ballad to smooch to in the discos.

“It was the first of four charting singles released from their Love GamesΒ LP. Bill Fredericks is the lead singer.

The song reached the Top 10 in the UK, the first of three to do so. “Like Sister and Brother” also reached the Top 10 in Australia.”Β  source WIKI

It’s such a small town, girl
News travels faster than a sigh

Everybody wants to know about
The next man’s secret
Every time we meet upon the street
We’ve got to keep it

Like sister and brother
We’ll wave to each other
We don’t want all the world to know
We are really lovers

So, we’ll talk about the weather
‘Til we’re alone together
Then all the world will fade and die
And baby, there is only you and I

You and me, baby
You and me, baby

Sometimes, it’s hard to hide
Pent up emotions we both feel

I want to tell the world that
I love you but I dare not say it
Until he let you go
There’s only one way, we can play it

Well, like sister and brother
We’ll wave to each other
We don’t want all the world to know
We are really lovers

So, we’ll talk about the weather
‘Til we’re alone together
Then all the world will fade and die
And baby there is only you and I

Baby
Don’t it make you feel good?
Oh, baby, oh, baby

We’ll wave to each other
We don’t want all the world to know that
That we’re really lovers

So, we’ll talk about the weather
‘Til we’re alone together, baby
Then all the world will fade and die
And baby, there is only you and I
You and I, you and I

C’mon, c’mon
We don’t want the whole wide world to know
That we’re really lovers

‘Til we’re alone together, baby
Then all the world

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
