One Big Happy Family

by Barry Louis Polisar

Well, I pushed my baby brother off the backyard swing,
Then I tried to knock him down when we were arguing.
No one ever gets mad at me,
We are one big happy family;
One big happy family.
My Daddy laughs, he makes no demands,
Grandma says I'm cute, Mommy understands;
My Uncle says "boys will be boys,
A little bit of trouble and whole lotta noise"

Oh, I've got a Little sister who will cry and wail,
When I knock her off her bike and pull her pony tail.
We go outside, I tie her to the tree.
We are one big happy family;
One big happy family.
Oh my Daddy laughs, he makes no demands,
Grandma says I'm cute, Mommy understands.
My Uncle says "boys will be boys,
A little bit of trouble and whole lotta noise"

They let me stomp and yell and shout.
They think I'm cute, when I scream and pout.
They love me so, now don't you see,
We are one big happy family;
One big happy family.
My Daddy laughs, he makes no demands,
Grandma says I'm cute, Mommy understands.
My Uncle says "boys will be boys,
A little bit of trouble and whole lotta noise"
