All Brothers

 

And we are all brothers,

Oh, oh, all brothers,

And we sing happy songs, oh, oh, oh,

And we stick together, oh, oh, together,

Like no one else, oh, oh, oh.

 

[Chorus] La la la la…

All together, brothers and sisters, all.

 

And we are all sisters, oh, oh, all sisters,

Like Sara, Rebecca, Ruth and Esther, oh.

And we are all united, oh, oh, all united,

Whether we are many or few, oh, oh, oh.

[Chorus]
