"Family Way" as written by and Jeremy Clyde....
Darling will you marry me?
Oh yes my love, I will

Been going with this girl for a year or two
Family they don't want me to
It's their family way
They think that I am lazy
And they tell her that she's crazy
Family way

They went to the judge to forbid us to get wed
And now on the whole, I'd say there's trouble ahead
She's in the family way

I know I love your daughter, sir
Don't you think the choice should be made by her?
Family way
They believe in long engagements
Time to make arrangements
Family way

All we want is a life of our own
But we'll never get it now, not the way she has grown
She's in the family way

Doctor, doctor, are you absolutely sure?
When you tell us there's under eight months more
Before the stork comes knocking at the door

Soon it's gonna be too late
They'll notice that she's put on weight
In the family way
Then they'll put her on a diet
When all she needs is peace and quiet
Family way

All we want is a life of our own
But we'll never get it now, not the way she has grown
She's in the family way

Sir, I think your daughter and I should be married
Soon, very, very soon!
