Family Lyrics
Family reunion, 4th of July
It's been three years since I've seen it
Now I remember why
Aunt Charlotte's at the door
Big smile on her face
The first thing she says to me
Looks like you've gained some weight
You only get that kind of honesty
From family

Uncle Joe's getting plastered
Aunt Marthe's getting mad
Same old cousin Doug
Same old jokes, same old bad
Mama has to keep reminding me
Son, they're family

A few new babies, the same old crazies
I've known 'em my whole life
And they still amaze me
I didn't choose 'em
Cause you gotta love 'em
They're family

Cousin Linda showed up
With her new sweetheart
I had to laugh when daddy whispered
Fifth time might be the charm
And there's a brother Lester
In the city, just flew in
All the way from out
We're still not sure about him
But different as we are it's good to be
In family

A few new babies, the same old crazies
I've known 'em my whole life
And they still amaze me
I didn't choose 'em
Wouldn't wanna lose 'em
Cause you gotta love 'em
Man, they're family

When mama said the blessings
She was fightin back the tears
Cause the last time we were all together
Grandpa was here
She knew how proud he'd be
And how much he'd love to see

A few new babies, the same old crazies
I've known 'em my whole life
And they still amaze me
Don't get to choose 'em
But you hate to lose 'em
You gotta love 'em
Cause they're family

Family reunion, 4th of July
It's been three years since I've seen it
Now I remember why
