Family Tree

Words and Music by Tom Chapin and John Forster

Before the days of Jell-0
Lived a prehistoric fellow
Who loved a maid and courted her beneath the Banyan tree

Now they had lots of children,
And their children all had children,
And they kept on having children until one of them had me.

Chorus

We're a family and we're a tree.

Our roots go deep down in history

From my great, great Granddaddy reaching up to me,

We're a green and growing Family Tree.

 

My Grandpa came from Russia,

My Grandma came from Prussia

They met in Nova Scotia, had my Dad in Tennessee.

Then they moved to Yokahama,

Where my Daddy met my Mama.

Her Dad's from Alabama and her Mom's part Cherokee.

Chorus

Now one fine day 1 may go
To Tierra Del Fuego.

Perhaps I'll meet my wife there and we'll move to Timbuktu.

And our kid will be bilingual,
And though she may stay single,
She could of course co-mingle with the King of Kathmandu.

Chorus

The folks in Madagascar
Aren't the same as in Alaska.

They've got different foods, different moods and different colored skin.

You may have a different name,
But underneath we're much the same.
You're probably my cousin, and the whole world is our kin

Chorus

We're a family and we're a tree.

Our roots go deep down in history

From my great, great Granddaddy reaching up to me,

We're a green and growing Family.
