Letra Families

(How's the family)
(How's the family)

Mama, you tell me, how's the family
And Papa, tell me how thing's going by you
And little baby sister, I heard that you got married
And I heard that you had yourself a little baby girl, too
And here's some uncles and some cousins, I know, baby please
And would you believe my old dog Tessa's here too
And would you believe that nobody in this family wanted to keep her
And now that dog's more of a part of this family, then I am, too
I don't come home much anymore
No, no, no I don't come home much anymore
Mama

And Mama, I know I've disappointed you are
And Papa, I know that you feel the same way, too
And no, no, no, no, no I still haven't got married
And no, no, no there's no grand stunt planned here for you
And by the way, daddy tell me how's the business
I understand that your stock is going very high
No, daddy, you're not a poor man anymore
And I hope you'll realize it before you die
Because I don't come home much anymore
No, no, no, no, no I don't come home much no more
But daddy

And please, please, please, please, please, common
let's not start this business again
I know how much you resent the life that I have
But one more time - I don't want the family business
Don't want to inherit it upon the day that you die
Really, daddy, shouldn't you give it to my sister
You know, Elisabeth, you know, Elisabeth
she has a better head for those things than I
She lives practically round the corner
That's really the kind of child you could be proud of
But papa, I know this business is a mistake
There's nothing there we have in common, except our name
And families that live out in the suburbs
Often make each other cry
And I don't think I'll come home much anymore
No, no, I don't think I'll come home much again
Mama, Papa
We often make each other cry
No, I don't think I'll come home much anymore
