It's a family affair, it's a family affair

One child grows up to be
Somebody that just loves to learn
And another child grows up to be
Somebody you'd just love to burn

Mom loves the both of them
You see it's in the blood
Both kids are good to mom
But blood's thicker than mud

It's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
Lord, it's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair

Newlywed a year ago
But you're still checking each other out, yes you are
Nobody wants to blow
And nobody wants to be left out, no

You can't leave
'Cause your heart is there
You can't stay
'Cause you've been somewhere else

You can't cry
'Cause you'll look broke down
But you're crying anyway
'Cause you're all broke down

It's a family affair, it's a family affair
Yeah, it's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair

It's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
It's a family affair, it's a family affair
