The Family Song
00:00 / 02:56


Sing Along Now!


Bobby and his sister live with a Ms. and Mr.
Who vowed to love for better or for worse
Bobby really loves his folks and doesn't understand the jokes
His Mom's a doctor and his Dad's a nurse


And they're a family, a real family
There may be dust upon the floor, the roof might leak above
But they're a family a real family, living in a house that's made of love

Maya and her mother live alone there are no
Other people in the house, but still they get along
And their dancin and their singin sound like fifty bells a ringin
So let's put them in the chorus of our song


Susie and her brother live with their father
And someone whom their father loves a lot
And they've got a cat named rover and a dog that won't roll over
and I'll tell you something else that they have got


Now all of you who hear this song if there's a place
Where you belong I don't care if you're young or if you're grown
If there is someone special who can love you and be close to you
You never have to feel that you're alone
