Family reunion, fourth 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, but I'd hate to lose '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
Lives in the city just flew in
All the way from way out yonder
We're still not sure about him

But different as we are it's good to be, a 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
But 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 and 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, fourth of July
It's been three years since I've seen it now I remember why
