Transcript: The Family Song

This song is about my family
They’re all very close to me
I love them very much
We always keep in touch

I’ve got a mother and a father
a son and a daughter
a grandfather and a grandmother
a sister and a brother

My father’s name is Stan
He drives a baker’s van
My mother’s name is Dorothy
And she is 53

My son is called Mark
He loves to play in the park
My daughter’s name is Kelly
She’s always watching telly

I’ve got a mother and a father
a son and a daughter
a grandfather and a grandmother
a sister and a brother

Grandfather was a sailor
But his surname is Taylor
Grandmother hates cold weather
They’ve spent 73 years together

My sister goes to the gym
That’s why she is so thin
My brother lives in Sydney
That’s everyone in my family
