Mama's got a girlfriend, mom loves the ladies
Mama's really happy when you're looking at her these
days
Papa's got a boyfriend, yeah, Dad is a man's man
Everybody's family, loving everybody he can
Oh, the old world is turning around like a top
and there's nothing you and I should even try to do to
stop it
It takes a lot of courage to stand up and get what you
need
And lots of us are happy in a different kind of family

Hot time in the old town, the homestead is hopping
Veggies on the grill and there is music in the garden
All the outs are in free, the babies are sleeping
Time enough for love when everybody puts a hand in

Oh, the old world is turning around like a top
And there' s nothing you or I should even try to do to
stop it
Ozzy & Harriet are spinning around in their graves
But who needs television these days, anyway?

Love defines its boundaries
Limitless shapes, countless forms
I have vowed that when it comes to me I'll take it
Every manifestation, I'm gonna celebrate it

Papa's got a boyfriend, the boyfriend loves mom, too
Everywhere they turn they've got a heart that they can
cling to
Mama's got a girlfriend, and guess who loves dad's beau
Try to paint a picture, you can do it with your eyes
closed

Oh, the old world is turning around like a top
And there' s nothing you or I should even try to do to
stop it
There aren't any limits when you follow the line that
love leads
And lots of us are happy in a different kind of family

In a world that seems to be increasing in conformity
It's harder and harder to be who you want to be
It takes a lot of courage to stand up and get what you
need
Ah, lots of us are happy in a different kind of family
