    "Family Affair" Lyrics

    Sly & The Family Stone

    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 mud

    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 sure 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!
