[With Keith Whitley]

We shared the same last name and the same color eyes,
But we fought like tigers over that old red bike.
"I'm battin' first and you can't use my glove."
It wouldn't take long until push came to shove.
But we looked out for each other,
With brotherly love.

You hated girls 'til I had my first date.
I brought her home from the movies; you stayed up late.
Three on the couch watchin' T.V.
I was smilin' at her while you were laughin' at me.
But, I wouldn't trade it for nothin'.
Brotherly love.

There's a bond that brothers know,
And it gets stronger as they grow.
A love that time and miles can't come between.
We disagree but in the end,
There will never be two closer friends.
And brotherly love is something we all need.

Instrumental break.

They share the same last name and the same color eyes,
But they fight like tigers over one ol' red bike.
And lookin' at them reminds me of us.
They're gonna fight and they're gonna fuss.
But, they've got something special,
It's brotherly love.

Yeah, they've got something special,
It's brotherly love.

    To me it means two brothers that are really close,and faught growing up but still had each others back. Even when they got older. My husband lost his brother oct 4,2010 and it reminds me of them. I had a brother that passed dec 1,2011,but we didn't share the same las name or the same color eyes,but i loved him. To me cherish the moments with your family,cause they could be gone in a blink of an eye.. I love the song,and i love keith whitley...
