Aunt Anna Came To Our House

by Barry Louis Polisar

Aunt Anna came to our house to visit us again.
She talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and then
She told my sister to eat more, said she was getting thin,
Told my brother to cut his hair and tuck his shirt tails in.
She said we were all good children, who'd do what we were told.
She pinched me on the cheek and told me not to get a cold.

Aunt Anna came to our house to visit us again.
She talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and then
She talked about the vegetables, said they were cooked too long,
She said the house needs painting, said we should mow the lawn.
She said she couldn't stand our house, said it was such a mess.
She said she'd have a heart attack, she said she was depressed.

Aunt Anna came to our house to visit us again.
She talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and talked and then
She said she'd never come again, she'd stay in a motel,
But she says that every time she comes as far as I can tell
The truth is that she likes all the excitement that we bring
Even though she's gonna kill me when she hears me sing.
