Family Reunion - Jill Scott

we at the family reunion
telling jokes and playing spades
uncle dave is on the barbeque grill
grandma bragging about the blankets she made
for the new baby on her way
even though the daddy ain't really ready
this child is coming anyway, yay ay yeah
missy made her famous potato salad
somehow it turns out green
maybe it's all the scallions
could be the celery
but oh, uncle jerome loves it, hm
hey baby, baby, here comes my favorite
my favorite cousin and
he says he's doing fine, taking it one step a day
but in my heart I know it ain't that way

oh oh oh, what can you say
it's family
and oh oh oh, what can you say
it's family

aunt juicy been drinking again, wooo
it's only 1:30 in the afternoon
everybody tiptoeing round her
we all know she gonna be tore up soon
saying all the things we like to say
hope she gets around my cousin lonny
cause we all know he got a little extra
somebody on the side

(chorus 1x)

oh sh_t, damn
mickey and steven are fighting again
move out the way, somebody might get hurt
oh, look at that, what happened is worse
they knocked over helen nova's lemon cake
you know the one she barely ever makes
I'm getting riled up, I want them to go
but somebody turned frankie beverly on the stereo
cousin ruby starts rockin, shaking her good hip and
so we all fall into place, smiling and laughing

(chorus 2x)
