Your sister is your first friend and usually your first rival. She’s the one who always there no matter what. So to celebrate your relationship with your sister, why not send her one of these songs?

Sister Sledge – We Are Family

Let’s start off this list with a song sung by actual sisters. Sister Sledge is made up of four sisters who used to do backup vocals for various artists before hitting it big. We Are Family is their biggest hit. It has become more than just an anthem about family as it has also been adopted by various women’s groups to show their solidarity.

Lyrics about sisters: We are family

I got all my sisters with me

We are family

Get up ev’rybody and sing

We are family

I got all my sisters with me

We are family

Get up ev’rybody and sing


Britney Spears – Little Me (To My Sister)

For those of you who followed Britney Spears’ career from the start, she is known to have been very close to her sister Jamie Lynn. So she wrote this song as a tribute to the little sister who always looked up to her. Britney’s career may have had its ups and downs, but despite it all, she always kept in mind how her actions might affect the life of her beloved sister.

Lyrics about sisters: Just yesterday

You were looking up to me

And, You’d ask me

What I thought

But now I’m sitting here

All alone with my tears

Lookin’ at my life

That I’ve bought

Where did I go?

My eyes, they will show

Reba McEntire – My Sister My Friend

Despite the sibling rivalry, it’s usually our sister who becomes our first friend. In this song, Reba sings to her sister about the good old days when they were kids. And even though they’re apart, she doesn’t miss the opportunity to call up her sister just to say hi and reminisce about their childhood.

Lyrics about sisters: Hey girl, it’s me, just called to tell you hi

Call me when you get this

Haven’t talked lately, so hard to find the time

Give the boys a big kiss

Tell them that I miss them

By the way, I miss you too

I was thinking just today

About how we used to play

Barbie dolls and makeup

Tea Parties, dress up

I remember how we’d fight

And make up and laugh all night

Wish we were kids again

My sister, my friend

songs about sisters love

Aretha Franklin and Eurythmics – Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves

Not all sisters need to be related. Sometimes, the best sisters are the ones who share a common cause. Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves is a song that’s about feminism and how we are all sisters with one goal. Lennox explained how hard it was to create a song that could be played on the radio and yet was a feminist anthem. So she enlisted the help of a fantastic woman like Aretha Franklin to sing it with her.

Lyrics about sisters: Now there was a time when they used to say

That behind every – great man.

There had to be a – great woman.

But in these times of change you know

That it’s no longer true.

So we’re comin’ out of the kitchen

‘Cause there’s somethin’ we forgot to say to you


Dolly Parton – Baby Sister

Sisters stand by each other through thick and thin, and that’s exemplified in this Dolly Parton song. In Baby Sister, Dolly spots her sister in a bar. Her sister is heartbroken because of a man, and Dolly wishes him a thousand deaths. So she tells her sister to leave with her and go home.

Lyrics about sisters: And I curse the man that made you what you are today

I hope he dies a thousand times a thousand ways

Your eyes are filled with tears, sis let’s get out of here

‘Cause I love you baby sister, let’s go home


The Puppini Sisters – Sisters

In this song, the Puppini Sisters sing about the bond they share with their sisters. Sisters care for each other through thick and thin and throughout the men they date. And no matter how some men try to drive a wedge between the sisters, that bond between two women still stands strong long after the man has left.

Lyrics about sisters: Sisters, sisters

There were never such devoted sisters

Never had to have a chaperone, No sir

I’m there to keep my eye on her

Caring, sharing

sister songs

Bob Dylan – Oh Sister

Bob Dylan’s lyrics have always ranged from poetically cryptic to strangely literal. In this song, however, his lyrics are the former. In Oh Sister, he pleads with his sister to treat him like a brother and not a stranger. There may have been a rift between them, but in this song, he tries to remind his sister of the eternal bond they share despite their differences.

Lyrics about sisters: Oh, sister, am I not a brother to you

And one deserving of affection

And is our purpose not the same on this earth

To love and follow his direction

We grew up together

From the cradle to the grave

We died and were reborn

And then mysteriously saved


Bette Midler – Wind Beneath My Wings

This may not be a song that’s explicitly about sisters, but it may be one you’d like to dedicate to her. Wind Beneath My Wings is a song about a woman who has achieved fame and glory. However, she wants to thank that person who helped her along the way without taking any of the credit. It’s the perfect song for sisters who help each other out through the hard times.

Lyrics about sisters: So I was the one with all the glory,

While you were the one with all the strength

A beautiful face without a name for so long

A beautiful smile to hide the pain


Celine Dion – Because You Loved Me

There’s nothing quite like the love of a sister. Motherly love is nurturing and gentle. Fatherly love is more protective. Brotherly love is playful as well as protective. But love from a sister is like love from a friend who knows you best and would do anything for you. This song by Celine Dion captures what it’s like to feel loved by a sister.

Lyrics about sisters: You were my strength when I was weak

You were my voice when I couldn’t speak

You were my eyes when I couldn’t see

You saw the best there was in me

Lifted me up when I couldn’t reach

You gave me faith ’cause you believed

I’m everything I am

Because you loved me


Crystal Gayle – Don’t Make My Brown Eyes Blue

Let’s top off this list with a song from one sister to another. Crystal Gayle’s song is a sequel to her older sister Loretta Lynn’s song I’ve Cried the Blue Right Out of My Eyes. It’s as if she’s empathizing with her sister by creating a song of her own with a similar sentiment!

Lyrics about sisters: I’ll be fine when you’re gone

I’ll just cry all night long

Say it isn’t true and

Don’t it make my brown eyes blue
