One child grows up to be Gm7 C7
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
Blood's thicker than the mud,
It's a family affair

It's a family affair Gm7 C7
It's a family affair Gm7 Dm7

INSTRUMENTAL Gm7 C7 (x3) + Gm7 Dm7


Newlywed a year ago
But you're still checking each other out, yeah
Nobody wants to blow
Nobody wants to be left out
You can't leave, 'cause your heart is there
But you can't stay, 'cause you been somewhere else
You can't cry, 'cause you'll look broke down
But you're cryin' anyway 'cause you're all broke down
It's a family affair
