It Shoulda Been You the Musical - That's Family Lyrics

"That's Family" is a song from musical It Shoulda Been You performed by Tyne Daly (Judy), Harriet Harris (Georgette), Chip Zien (Murray) and Michael X. Martin (George).

Judy
So you think your daughter's going to marry a guy.
All you planned to do that day was stand there and cry.

She wears your dress, she wears your pearls
And then she says shes pregnant and she sleeps with girls.
But am I surprised?

Georgette
That's Family
There's a chance I should have known that my son would be gay.
I encouraged everything to make him that way.
I showed him plays with thespians.
It worked so well he's gay and sleeps with lesbians.
But am I surprised?

Judy
It doesn't work that way

Georgette
I know

Judy and Georgette
That's family
You can make plans by the score
Involve your children and just watch the plans fly out the door

Georgette
Now our kids are getting ready to add to the klan

Judy
With so many of us bubbies its useless to plan

Georgette
What's a grandma?

Judy
The child will grow

Georgette
Will fret and fuss

Judy and Georgette
Then the kid will do to them what they just did to us

Georgette
Will they be surprised?

Judy
I hope so

Judy and Georgette
That's family

Murray
Did you see that our two wives are now related?

George
Is this real or are we both hallucinating?

Murray
Yes

George
Its true

Murray
Oy

George
Vey

Murray and George
Betcha stranger things will happen when you've become family

All
You can make plans by the score
Involve your children and just watch the plans fly out the door

(Overlapping)

Judy and Georgette
Now the kids are getting ready to add to the klan.
With so many of us bubbies its useless to plan.
The child will grow, will fret and fuss.
Then watch it do to them what they just did to us.
A word to the wise

Murray and George
Did you see that our two wives are now related?
Is this real or are we both hallucinating?
Yes, its true. Oy Vey.
Betcha stranger things will happen

All
When you've become family

Judy
Crazy

Murray
Contented

George
Devoted

Georgette
Demented

All
Loving, neurotic, adoring, psychotic
Mostly happy

Judy
What doesn't kill ya...

Georgette
Makes ya drink!!

All
Family
