GThey say you taught me how to talk I Cbet you wish you taught me how to stop You're Emfar away now I wish I could take a Dwalk with you someplace CYou explained me to our parents EmEnglish wasn't their first language AmThey spoke German CHated Germans DConfusing times GOh sister CDown midwest backseat bumpy streets You Emsang my Beatles songs with me I Amsang your Broadway melodies Bad Dharmonies And Cwhere would Willie Mays have been Emwithout Jackie Robinson? And Amwho can say what I'd been Without Dyou to lead the Gway After I showed some guys I could drink You picked me off the lawn, I think And led me to the kitchen sink Where I got rid of it Some nights I lay awake in awe As squinting through the dark I saw You peeling off your teenage bra The door slightly ajar Oh sister You lived just across the hall For eighteen summers Eighteen falls Until you went away to that Weird college in Wisconsin And where would Willie Mays have been without Jackie Robinson? And who can say what I'd been Without you to lead the way EmTrust yourseDlf And Cyou can do Ganything AmThis I give to Dyou May your heart purr like a bumblebee May all your backyards have a tree May you always be HIV negative I hope you meet a nice guy who Treats women better than I do I don't even care if he's a Jew or not Oh sister I remember in the temple hall At our dear father's funeral You sang like a nightingale One of his own songs And where would Willie Mays have been Without Jackie Robinson? And who can say what I'd been Without you to lead the way
