"We're A Happy Family" as written by and Thomas/cummings 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
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
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
We're a happy family, we're a happy family
We're a happy family, me, mom and daddy

    General CommentSounds like it's about a homeless family in the city. Although they get attention from journalists and politicians, they don't actually get help from those people

    General CommentIt's about growing up in a very dysfunctional family, and lamenting it.

    General CommentI love the main riff to this song, and all of them like it like Lobotomy and... fuck, I can't think of any others. But I know there are a lot.
