Ummm Ummm
Something smells good Mommy
Baby we’re having something special tonight
Mommy are we having company?
Oh yeah
Who’s coming?
Everyone. The whole world is coming to dinner tonight
Oh really. What are we having?
Stew.
What kind of stew?
Family stew
Say whaaaaaaat?

We add all kind of flavors
All kinds of chunks
Some have brothers
Some have uncs
That’s short for uncles
Aunts sometimes too
Nephews and nieces and cousins a few
We could add a sister, and a Mom and Pop
Nanas and Granddads we like them a lot
See a family’s more then what you think
Family is the heart, it’s the key, the link
Don’t forget the dog or the family cat
I’ve got a step Mom, imagine that
I’ve got all these relations
Moving to and fro
We may have different folks
But you can be my bro that’s
Short for brother ‘course we’ve got da sisters too all
part of this family and that includes you

A Family Stew is what you make it
Keep on adding love, you’ll never break it

We are Family, Family Stew
That means me that means you
Family, Family stew
We am what we am and we do what we do

We can add some color
Some herbs some spice
Some of the Love vibe
To melt the ice
Make sure there’s enough for those mystery guests they’ll
be in the stew too like all the rest
Family Stew
Yah you know who we be
Hello everyone
That means you and me
Family Stew
Yah you know who we be
Come on everyone jump in It’s free

Problems can come up things get a little heated
We blow off some steam love will never be defeated
Gotta talk it out, walk it out, work it out at home then
Take it to the street don’t keep it locked inside your dome
Light the pilot before you turn on the gas it’s the
Stew of the present, forget about the past got to
clean them veggies fore ya put them in the pot
Easy now the family stew is starting to get hot

Family, Family Stew
That means me that means me you
Family, Family Stew
That means me that means me you
Family, Family Stew
That means me that means me you
Family, Family stew
We am what we am and we do what we do

Got to let it simmer now don’t be hasty
Takes a little time till it gets tasty
Wouldn’t it be something, wouldn’t it be sweet if we could
take this flavor out to every street
Of every town filled with mothers and brothers,
cousins and uncles and all the others
Especially to them who think they’re all alone
We’re all part of this stew got to let it be known

So keep on keeping on adding to the family pot I’ve
told you mine now tell me yours tell me what you’ve got
Make it (make it) Don’t fake it (make it)
Don’t break it ( make it make it)
Make it hot, don’t stop got to take it to the top

We are Family, Family Stew
That means me, that means you
Family, Family stew
That means me, that means you
Family, Family Stew
That means me, that means you
Family, Family Stew
We am what we am and we do what we do.
