The Lyrics

On a related subject, here's the daily routine somewhere out back in a country. Somewhere out back in ANY country. Introducing you to family traditions you may not know about. Here goes.
ooh, I bet you're wondrin' how I knew
bout you cheating with this dude:
my half-brother Kyle whom you knew before
who was fave of my mom till he got disowned
because he wed my cousin Peggy-May
and now he mounted you yesterday
and you know that I

heard it from our eighth child
yes, he caught you doing "horse-rides"
oh, I heard it from our eighth child
guess he must have got my sis' third eye
honey, honey, yeah

(heard it from our eighth child
but hang, on we only had five babies, ooh, ooh, ooh)

I know I'm actually supposed to cry
but I still can marry cousin Vi
and lil' old you, I'll remain to see
'cause we keep it in the family
but you could have told, we're old friends
and we share one same gramps
instead I


(heard it from our eighth child
but hang on we only had five babies, ooh, ooh, ooh)

the tailor said: "it's fine to be a divorcee,
son, just look at ol' Daddy here"
but his words keep me confused
I thought the jeweller had conceived me
do you still plan to marry him?
you'd have to invite the entire ville
family lore


heard it from our eighth child
but hang on we only had five babies, ooh, ooh, ooh

honey, honey, I know
that our uncle's our bro
said I heard it from our eighth child
heard it from our eighth child

Oh, yeah, "I Caught You Under My Kin!" I had read it already, not so long ago, but I couldn't think of any comments that you could use, Peter.
