"Family of Me" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds....
How great I am
Gotta tell myself, yeah I'm the man
Looks grim right now
But pretty soon we'll be laughing about it
Ooh, and it's alright
Yeah it is, I swear you'll see
(It's not really)
Yeah it's alright
Cuz I've always got my family of me

It's not a first
(Might be the last)
Yeah I'm sure I must have been through worse, but
Ooh, it's alright
Got a paddle and a creek
Yeah and it's alright
Cuz I've always got my family of me

    General CommentIn the movie Over the Hedge, for which this song was written, the raccoon has no family to start. So that's what this song is literally about, but out of context, I'd go with Kamikaze's interpretation.
