While it’s something I’ll often deny,
This is my family and it’s everything I pride.
You get exactly what you see
And it’s as dysfunctional as any family could be.
Seven kids, we’ve never really fit in.
Sometimes people treat us like it’s a sin
“Seven kids!” they say, “Are you insane?”
So there's times that it’s my parents I blame.
We fight, we argue, we even hate.
There is an awful lot of talking straight.
That’s why I ask myself if it’s better that they separate –
One parent at a time to tolerate.
We cannot do it alone - we need God’s aide.
The days are often where our smiles fade,
But one thing hasn’t, and won’t ever, change.
We’re family now and family we’ll remain.
