We're a Happy Family

Written by Hyman/Cummings/Colvin/Erdelyi
        We're a happy family
        We're a happy family
        We're a happy family
        Me, mom and daddy

        We're a happy family
        We're a happy family
        We're a happy family
        Me, mom and daddy

Siting here in Queens
Eating refried beans
We're in all the magazines
Gulpin' down thorazines

We ain't got no friends
Our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send
Daddy likes men

Daddy's telling lies
Baby's eating flies
Mommy's on pills
Baby's got the chills

I'm friends with the President
I'm friends with the Pope
We're all making a fortune
Selling Daddy's dope

Siting here in Queens
Eating refried beans
We're in all the magazines
Gulpin' down thorazines

We ain't got no friends
Our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send
Daddy likes men

        We're a happy family
        We're a happy family
        We're a happy family
        Me, mom and daddy
