Lyrics

It's a family affair, it's a family affair 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 "Blood's thicker than the mud" It's a family affair, it's a family affair Newlywed a year ago But you're still checking each other out 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, it's a family affair oh hey ya It's a family affair...it's a family affair
