    They say you taught me how to talk
    Bet you wish you taught me how to stop
    You're far away now, wish I could take a walk with you someplace
    You explained me to our parents
    English wasn't their first language
    They spoke German, hated Germans
    Confusing times
    Oh sister
    Down midwest backseat bumpy seats
    You sang my beatles songs with me
    I sang your Broadway melodies, bad harmony
    And where would Willie Mays have been
    Without Jackie Robinson
    And who can say what I'd been
    Without you to lead the way
    After I showed some guys I could drink
    You picked me of 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 18 summers, 18 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
    Trust yourself, and you can do anything
    This I give to you
    May your heart purr like a bumblebee
    May all your backyards have a tree
    May you always be HIV negative
    I hope you meet some 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 out 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
