Family – Family Affair lyrics

It's a Family Affair (4x)
One child grows up to be
Somebody that just loves to learn and
Another child grows up to be
Somebody you just love to burn.
Mom loves the both of them.
Why'see it's in her blood.
Both kids, a good mom,
Blood's thicker than the mud,
It's a family affair.
It's a Family Affair (4x)
Newlywed a year ago,
But you're still checkin' each other out, yeahh.
Nobody wants to blow(?)
Nobody wants to be left out. (uh-huh)
You can't leave cause your heart is there
But you can't stay cause you've been somewhere else.
You can't cry cause you look so down
But you're cryin' anyway cause you're all broke down.
It's a Family Affair (8x)
