The text reads:
What is a Family?
Its sharing, comparing, bonding & caring
Its hugging & squeezing, talking & teasing
Its praising & knowing, belonging & growing
Its guiding, providing, trusting, confiding
Its loving & kissing, nurturing, missing
Its working & playing, treating & paying
Its arguing, fighting & often delighting
Its visiting, hosting & Sunday roasting
Its relaxing & boring, most reassuring
Its coaxing & charming, appeasing & calming
Its waiting, debating, fulfilling, elating
Its needing & feeding & tactful conceding
Its driving, conniving, learning & thriving
Its holding & nursing, worrying, cursing
Its stressing, confessing & making a messing
Its loaning & moaning, helping & phoning
Its bickering, laughing, bedding & bathing
Its listening, coping, planning & hoping
Its relying, crying, a little white lying
Its forgiving & mending, liking, depending
Thats what makes a family!
