Paul, Billy - Bring The Family Back Lyrics



Haven't you noticed
A breakdown in the family tie
Just not as strong as it once was
Every time I see it weaken, it makes me want to cry

Oh, what a shame (Oh, what a shame)
'Cause another home's falling apart
Oh, what a shame (Oh, what a shame)
Another group of broken hearts

It's not a secret
We all know that it's slipping away
Don't let it go, no, don't you let it go
It is the only true foundation on which we can survive

Don't be afraid (Don't be afraid)
'Cause you got to take it for a stand
Don't be afraid (Don't be afraid)
You've got to try to understand

Bring the family back, bring it back together
Bring the family back
Bring the family back, bring it back together
Together

Bring the family back, bring it back together
Bring the family back

There's also the children
The future's quickly comin' their way
How it will be
Oh, tell me how do you think it will be

Will they all join hands together and live in harmony

Oh, what a shame (Oh, what a shame)
If we don't get together fast
Oh, what a shame (Oh, what a shame)
How much longer will the whole thing last

Bring the family back, bring 'em back together
Bring the family back
Bring the family back, bring the family back and together

Bring the family back and live in harmony
Bring the family back
Bring back family unity

Bring the family back, bring 'em back together
Bring the family back
Bring the family back together, bring 'em family back
Bring 'em back together

Bring the family back and live in harmony
Bring the family back
Bring the family back, where's the unity
Bring the family back

Bring the old folks, the young folks, and all folks together
Just bring the people back
Bring the family back (Bring the family back, bring it back together)
(Bring the family back)

Bring the family back
Bring the family back
Bring the family back
Bring it all the time together

Bring the family back together (Bring the family back, bring it back together)
(Bring the family back)
(Bring the family back, bring it back together)
(Bring the family back)

(Bring the family back)

    Actually Rachel, this track was released in the summer of 1979, remember it well (only 13 at the time). So let's Bring the 70s Back!! Much better decade than the awful 80s, hon!

    Rachel Brown

    Lol. I LOVED the 80s!!! A very diverse decade.
    You still had a bit of Disco, Hip Hop, UK Soul (Loose Ends etc.), House Music. Brilliant!

  36. Birdman News Birdman News

    Real original roots soul when songs were conciously written to uplift a community and not a pop fad gimmick

  37. Supreme 12860

    These songwriters at Philadelphia International Record  were light years ahead of the curve with their songs dealing with life and politics. This song cumulates on what's gone horribly WRONG with the families today in America today and yes it makes me cry because many children will not get to experience of what it's like to have a complete supportive family without the government regulations (Federal, State, City, County and Towns) shadowing responsible loving parents!

    Stephen Piggott

    Maze joy and pain nicked some of this choon

  38. jh8856

    One of the classic UK soul anthems - a truly great track deserving of its iconic status.

  39. olsoulboy
