Have you met my family
Wouldn't take long to know them well
Though they number from one to a million
In this house we all dwell

Say hello to Jo, she's a goddess
And to Paul, he is a saint
And Adam, he's from the forest
And to Jane, all day she paints

You ask me how I feel now
Well I will tell you no lie
Jessie, you bring the sunshine
And you can see it in her eyes

Johnny tends the garden
And little David sows the seeds
Our manna is from heaven

He gives us all we need

He is Peter
He's a piper, yeah
And they will never grow old
So I bid you welcome
Welcome brothers, yeah
Welcome to the fold

You ask me how I feel now
Well I will tell you no lie
Jessie, you bring the sunshine
And you can see it in her eyes

Johnny tends the garden
And little David sows the seeds
Our manna is from heaven
He gives us all we need
