Song Lyric Sunday | “If My Sister’s in Trouble” by Lady Soul

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “brother/sister.”

~~~~~~~~~~

I have five sisters and this has been one of our anthems ever since it appeared on a movie soundtrack.

From 1992’s Whoopie Goldberg blockbuster, Sister Act, If My Sister’s in Trouble not only appeared on the soundtrack, but if you were one of the millions who purchased the movie on VHSand the crowd gasps in horror! – the music video played before the movie!

Sung by the three-woman group, Lady Soul, If My Sister’s in Trouble was not written for Sister Act. It was a cover of Jeffrey Osborne’s If My Brother’s in Trouble, released two years earlier on his Only Human album. Shocker, right? The song is absolutely perfect for the movie. Unfortunately, Lady Soul didn’t last long and disbanded soon after releasing the tune as a single only.

The video is another winner! Lady Soul is joined by cast members Kathy Najimy (Sister Mary Patrick), Wendy Makkena (Sister Mary Robert) and awesome veteran actress Mary Wickes (Sister Mary Lazarus) in a montage of the song, movie clips, and great dead-pan looks from Mary Wickes!

Turn your speakers up – time to chair dance! 😀

Enjoy!

If My Sister’s in Trouble

by Lady Soul

Written by David Barratt and William John Clift

 Do you ever feel it
When people get unkind
You can hear it in their voices
They get poison on their mindsThough ignorance
Should never be excused
I’ll do my best
To pick up their attitudesI’m moving away again
But there’s one thing
That will make me take a stand

If my sister’s in trouble
I will always help her out
If my sister’s in trouble
I will turn the world around
I will fight for her right
No matter where the trouble seems to lie
If my sister’s in trouble so am I
If my sister’s in trouble so am I
So am I

All across the land
Young people are walking blind
But if the heat comes down
I’ll be standing by your side

For I am there for you
Like you are there for me
Nothing feels as good
As a sister’s loyalty

I’m talking about family
What my sister means to me

If my sister’s in trouble
I will always help her out
If my sister’s in trouble
I will turn the world around
I will fight for her rights
No matter where the problem seems to lie
If my sister’s in trouble so am I
If my sister’s in trouble so am I
So am I

I’ll be there for you
Just reach out your hands
And I’m gonna pull you through

I’m talking about family
And what my sister means to me

If my sister’s in trouble
I will always help her out
If my sister’s in trouble
I’m gonna turn the world around
I will fight for her rights
No matter where the problem seems to lie
If my sister’s in trouble so am I

Sister
I’m talking about my sister
Sister
My sister, my sister
You’re in trouble so am I
So am I, so am I

I will be there
If you’re in trouble
Reach out your hands
Call on me sister
I will be there
If you’re in trouble
Reach out your hands
Call on me sister
I will be there
If you’re in trouble
