Jill Scott – Family Reunion lyrics
Jill Scott - Family Reunion

We at the family reunion, tellin' jokes and playin' spades
Uncle Dave is on the barbeque grill
Grandma braggin 'bout the blanket she made
For the new baby on her way
Even though the daddy ain't really ready
This child is coming... Anyway, yeah

Niecie made her famous potato salad, somehow it turns out green
Maybe it's all the scallions, could be the celery
But ol, Uncle Jerome loves it (Hmm)
Hey baby baby, here comes my favorite... My favorite cousin
He says he's doing fine, takin'it one step a day but in my heart I know it ain't that way

Whoa whoa-o-whoa whoa-o-whoa whoa-o-whoa
What can you say... Its family
And whoa whoa-o-whoa whoa-o-whoa whoa-o-whoa
What can you say... Its family

Aunt Juicy been drinkin' again... Ooh it's only 1: 30 in the afternoon
Everybody tip-toeing 'round her, we all know she gonna be tore up soon
Saying all the things we like to say, hope she gets around to Cousin Lonnie
Cause We all know he got a little extra somebody on the side (But)


Oh shit, Damn Mickey and Steven are fighting again
Move out the way, somebody might get hurt
Aw Look at that what happen is worst
They knocked over Helenora's Lemon Cake (Emm)
You know the one she barely ever makes
I'm gettin riled up, I want them to go
But Somebody turn Frankie Beverly on the stereo
Cousin Ruby starts rockin', shaking her good hip and bobbin
So we all fall into place, smiling and laughing
