"Family Tree" as written by Michael Anthony Mobley and Jessi Alexander....
It feels so cold
Walk with me
It feels so cold
Down by the family tree
It feels so cold
Walk with me
Feel so cold
Down by the family tree
Oh my God!

Can I take you down?
Come on out with me!
Can I take you out
Out to the family tree?
Can I take you out?
Come on out with me!
Can I take you out
Out to the family tree?

Well it is so cold
Walk with me
Looks so old
Down by the family tree
Well it looks so old
Come with me
Looks so old
Down by the family tree
Oh my God!

Can I take you down?
Come on out with me!
Can I take you out
Out to the family tree?
Can I take you out?
Come on out with me!
Can I take you out
Out to the family tree?

Can I take you down?
Come on out with me!
Can I take you out
Out to the family tree?
Can I take you out?
Come on out with me!
Can I take you out
Out to the family tree?

    General Commentthis has been my favorite black lips song for a while, but i usually get a new favorite every week; they're songs just stick with you.
    but the meaning, like many other black lips songs, eludes me. A lot of their lyrics seem to be nonsensical and this is no exception.
    Just a fun band

    General CommentI reckon the family tree is a reference to a family's lineage however the context also makes it seem like a "lover's lookout"; a hanky panky point of sorts.
    So with the themes of traditional American garage rock, it's song about asking for a long term relationship with someone (marriage) in the guise of 'a hi 5 your buddies the next day at school' type date.
