We are family
I got all my sisters with me
We are family
Get up ev'rybody and sing

Ev'ryone can see we're together
As we walk on by
(FLY!) and we fly just like birds of a feather
I won't tell no lie
(ALL!) all of the people around us they say
Can they be that close
Just let me state for the record
We're giving love in a family dose


Living life is fun and we've just begun
To get our share of the world's delights
(HIGH!) high hopes we have for the future
And our goal's in sight
(WE!) no we don't get depressed
Here's what we call our golden rule
Have faith in you and the things you do
You won't go wrong
This is our family Jewel

    She sings the song to a giant audience so cant she be saying that everyone of the world should see each other as family and love each other as if they were our brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers...

    I think this song means that a family is more precious than a jewel because at the end of the song it says this is our family jewel. By that sister sledge means that a family is more precious than any type of jewel.

    This song is mostly about times of our lives and how we get back with our family even if we break into fights. This playful and energetic song makes me feel so alive, and so complex.

    This song is gold to me.
