Falsettos the Musical - A Tight Knit Family Lyrics

“A Tight Knit Family” is a song performed by Christian Borle (Marvin) from the musical FALSETTOS and is written by William Finn and James Lapine.

MARVIN:
Well, the situation's this
Its not tough to comprehend
I divorced my wife
I left my child
And I ran off with a friend

But I want a tight-knit family
I want a group that harmonizes
I want my wife and kid and friend
To pretend
Time will mend
Our pain

So I make them interact
So I don't go by the book
We all eat as one-
Wife, friend, and son-
And I sing out as I cook

I want a tight-knit family.
I hope you all enjoy linguine.
Talk till you hear the dinner bell.
Such a dear clientele.

I swear we're gonna come through it.
I fear we'll probably fight,
But nothing's impossible.
Live by your wit-?
Kid, wife, and lover will have to admit
I was right
I cushioned the fall
I want it all
I want it all
I want it?
