It All Adds Up to My Sister is a song from the Johnny and the Sprites episode, "Johnny's Sister Tina". It is performed by John Tartaglia as Johnny and Sutton Foster as Tina. The song explains what a sister is to the Sprites, and at the reprise it explains what a brother is.


What exactly is a sister?

Hmm, well, let me see.

It's not easy to explain the way we're bonded
Like glue
I know just what my sister is to me
So maybe I can spell it out for all of you

S is for the school bus that we ride every day
I is for the ice cream that we get
S is for the Sunday afternoons we would play
T is for the turtle that we kept as a pet
E is for the evergreen that we used to climb
R is when we'd race around the bend
It all adds up to my sister
My sister, and my best friend

Wow! You and your sister did a lot of stuff together.

I guess that's true.

S is for the shows that we would see at the fair
I is making igloos in the snow
S is for the soda pops she never would share
T is how she tickled me until I cried "No!"
E is for the extra piece of pie she would eat
R is for my roller skates she hid
It all adds up to my sister
My sister, that funny kid

Well, hiding stuff from you doesn't sound very nice.

Aren't you supposed to like this sister Tina of yours?

S is for the smelly socks that she always had (Whoo!)
I's the impish grin she smiled at me
S is when I snitched on her to both Mom and Dad
T is when she teased me for my singing off key...key...
E is every argument we've put behind us
R is a remarkable young gal

It all adds up to my sister
And, oh, how much I have missed her
It all adds up to my sister
My sister, my sibling, my pal

B's the little boy I knew who seems all grown up
R is for the rotten jokes you tell
O's the orange juice you'd pour in Mom's coffee cup
T is how you tripped on things and you always fell

Thank goodness I outgrew that.

Yeah, right.

H is how we had to hear you practice guitar
ER's each recital we'd attend

It all adds up to my brother

It all adds up to my sister

My brother

My sister

My friend
To the end!
