    "Family" Lyrics

    The Rolling Stones

    Here's father, his heart screwed on
    Yes, here he's got it I'm sure
    'Cause he lost his life in an accident
    Found his heart in the man next door
    What exactly is gonna happen
    When they do transplant the brain
    Will my borrowed brain still compute the same
    Or will my daughter suffer so much more

    Here comes the girl, she's got her head screwed on
    But it ain't screwed on right
    Her ambition is to be a prostitute

    But the breaks just weren't right
    What exactly is gonna happen, tell me
    When her father finds out
    That his virgin daughter has bordello dreams
    And that he's the one she wants to try out

    There's ma, she's living dangerously
    It's a cinch she'll try it anything twice
    She thinks she can run right to the whirlpool's edge
    And stop herself just in time
    What exactly is gonna happen
    When she finally fizzles out
    The lovers will just be sucked into
    To see what the colours of death are all about

    Here's the son, has his legs a-screwed on
    Yeah, they're screwed on pretty tight
    But his brain is loose and it ain't no use
    He's already lost the fight
    What exactly is gonna happen
    When he's finally realized
    That he can't play his guitar like E.G. Jim
    Or write St. Augustine if he tried

    That's what happens
    When a family finds out
    That they've been in orbit now for a thousand years
    And need a thousand more to climb out
