In a dressmaker shop in Greece
The pins stick like tongues on poles
Or butts in an ashtray
Lunchtime packages
Waxed and wrapped and held
Down a dusty road
Inside an apron fold

It's cool it's cool to love your family
It's cool it's cool to love your family
It's cool it's cool to love your family
I know because I love them more and more

You know what grandpa brought power to the planes
Now he winks at me from thirty thousand feet
Now my uncle's got his face
And he takes the power to a different place
Hey hey, he's okay

It's cool it's cool to love your family
It's cool it's cool to love your family
It's cool it's cool to love your family
I know because I love them more and more

In the Copenhague a city morgue
The dead sleep in metal slips
Called and last
And someone loved them once
And someone loves them still
And someone misses them
And someone always will

You know that it's cool it's cool to love your family
It's cool it's cool to love your family
It's cool it's cool to love your family
I know because I love them more and more

    General Commentooh so many mistakes!

    In a dressmaker shop in Greece
    The pins stick like tongues on poles or butts in an ashtray
    Lunchtime packages, waxed and wrapped and held
    Down a dusty road, inside an apron fold

    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family, I know
    because I love them more and more

    You know my grandpa brought power to the planes
    Now he winks at me from thirty thousand feet
    Now my uncle's got his face
    And he takes the power to a different place
    Hey hey, he's okay

    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family, I know
    because I love them more and more

    In the Copenhagen city morgue
    The dead sleep in metal slips
    Called and last
    And someone loved them once
    And someone loves them still
    And someone misses them
    And someone always will

    You know that, it's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family, I know
    because I love them more and more

    and i dunno why everyone thinks it's apron ford. that doesn't make sense! it's fold!

    General CommentFirst, song meaning - she's poking fun at a braggart.

    Lyrics sound to me like this:

    ...

    "In a dressmaker’s shop in Greece
    The pins stick like tongues on poles or butts in an ashtray
    Lunchtime packages, waxed and wrapped and held
    Down a dusty road, inside an apron fold

    "It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family, I know
    because I love them more and more

    "You know my grandpa brought power to the plains
    (Do tell! Do tell!)
    Now he winks at me from thirty thousand feet
    Now my uncle's got his face
    And he takes the power to a different place
    Hey hey, he's okay

    "It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family, I know
    because I love them more and more

    "In the Copenhagen city morgue
    The dead sleep in metal slips
    Called at last
    And someone loved them once
    And someone loves them still
    And someone misses them
    And someone always will

    "You know that, it's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family
    It's cool, it's cool to love your family, I know
    because I love them more and more"

    ...

    You've got to get the "do tell" in there, it's really funny and tells you something about the attitude of the narrator
