Family reunion, 4th of July
It's been three years since I've seen them
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 Martha'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 them my whole life and they still amaze me
I didn't choose 'em, but I'd hate to lose 'em
Cause ya gotta love them, 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 her brother Lester, Linda said he just flew in
All the way from way out yonder
We're all still not to sure about him
But different as we all are
It's good to be family

A few new babies, the same old crazies
I've known them my whole life and they still amaze me
I didn't choose 'em, but I'd hate to lose; em
Cause ya gotta love them, man they're family

When mama said the blessing she was fighting back tears
Cause the last time we were all together Grandpa was here
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 them my whole life and they still amaze me
Don't get to choose 'em, but you hate to lose 'em
You gotta love 'em their family

Family reunion 4th of July
It's been three years since I've seen them
Now I remember why
