The Lyrics

[SUNG 1:]
When you've been GLAD
WITH uncles and aunts
Your wife's SO RAD
SHE IRONS your pants
You like CLOSED-LIPS FOR kisses
When relatives come to visit
Grandpa is BANKING and needing NOTE CHANGING
FOR step-brother-THANKING PRESENTS

You VIEW your own bro
And SHOW your nephew
GET A DAY job
On Mother's Day too
Playing twister with your sister
Next thing she's OBSESSED

Yes, we call it KIN ZEST!

[SUNG 2:]
My Nan is getting on IN AGE
While my second niece
Gets some oil to grease up A FRY PAN
Father MAKING PUNS
Brother having fun
JOKING WITH our uncle-in-law
We're lying on the ground
In THE KITCHEN NOW
Gonna make some round-the-clock MUFFINS
They're my next of kin, man
Our love is SO PURE

I give my great-grandfather BREAD
Cousin's on my bed
Spouse is LOTS OF FUN, FULL OF LAUGHTER
Mum and Dad agree
Sibling rivalry
Can only be solved with RESPECT
A filial scandal
I am NOT IN SANDALS

Grotesque? We call it KIN ZEST!

[SPOKEN 1:]
Now, how can you BRUSH OFF your second cousin,
Who's A LOVING wife,
When all the time your firstborn SPANGLES your Mum?

[SPOKEN 2:]
I don't know.
How can you BRUSH OFF your second cousin,
Who's A LOVING wife,
When all the time your firstborn SPANGLES your Mum?

[SPOKEN 1:]
Or, how can you WEIGH your stepmum's daughter
WHO WEIGHS sixty-nine,
When all the time your husband WEIGHS SIXTY ONE?

[SPOKEN 2:]
I don't know.
How can you WEIGH your stepmum's daughter
WHO WEIGHS sixty-nine,
When all the time your husband WEIGHS SIXTY ONE?

[SPOKEN 1:]
You CLEVER KID!
First, just arrange to SIT WITH YOUR aunty,
So you can be HAPPY and thus be SHARING SNACKS with nephews who AREN'T A BOTHER.

[SPOKEN 2:]
Wait a minute! That's a LOVELY DEPICTION!

[SPOKEN 1:]
Aha! OH YES, THEY'RE TOTALLY GREAT people!


[SUNG 1 & 2:]
When you've been GLAD

[SPOKEN 1:]
My kids LEARN FROM STANDARD TESTS!

[SUNG BOTHl]

[SPOKEN 1:]
I AM REALLY, REALLY BLESSED!

[SUNG BOTH:]
IT'S NOT awful KIN...

[SPOKEN 2:]
Gotta love my family crest!

[SUNG BOTH:]
Yes, we call it KIN ZEST!!!

5s for a trip down memory lane ... I was in the cast of Godspell in a professional theatre company that toured the greater Boston area in the late 1970's, and then we performed Godspell as the first show ever performed at The Turtle Lane Playhouse (in Auburndale, Massachusetts -- and Turtle Lane is still going strong today, 26 years later!) in 1980.

One of the highlights from this show, excellent work my Aussie friend. Glad to see you back in business. On a bittersweet note, If you haven't, check out the 1970 movie version and see New York's World Trade Center prominently appearing during this song's perfornance.
