Join The Family Business Lyrics

Young Frankenstein Musical - Join The Family Business

[Victor]
We've been the pride of Romania
since Twelve-O-One,
Passed on for generations,
Father to Son

Descended from gypsies,
as proud as we can be.
Don't risk my curse, it could be worse
Embrace your fam'ly tree!

Join the fam'ly bus'ness
Learn the family trade
Make yourself a monster
Make the world afraid!

Join the fam'ly bus'ness,
You must take the fam'ly name!
Follow in our footsteps
and you'll win eternal fame!

The Roqueforts are celebrated
for their Roquefort cheese,
the Rothschilds are famous for their wines
Hersheys have their choc'lates
and Liptons have their teas
But when it comes to making monsters, You can't beat the Frankensteins!

Join the fam'ly bus'ness
Rob a grave or two,
Stop the shop from closing,
It all depends on you!
Uphold the fam'ly honor,
you must toe the fam'ly line,
Join the fam'ly bus'ness
Join the fam'ly bus'ness
Join the fam'ly bus'ness
For your name is Frankenstein!

Meet your family!

[All]
Join the fam'ly bus'ness
Show some fam'ly pride

[Men]
Make yourself a monster...

[Women]
And then you'll make his bride!

[Victor]
Listen to your Great, Great, Great Grandfather Mordecai

[Mordecai]
Join the fam'ly bus'ness
If you don't want to die!

[All]
As you know predestination
From day the of your creation
Has determined your vocation
That's a fact.

[1st solo]
Because you are a Frankenstein

[2nd solo]
You have no choice

[3rd solo]
You can't decline

[4th solo]
So show some spine

[All]
It's time to sign the fam'ly pact

This is your fate
Become a Frankenstein before it's too late!

We know you won't regret it,
You should express your willingness
Why not acquiesce, reassess,
You're under stress

[Victor]
Just relax and make a serum
Come up with a brilliant theorem,
take you knife,
create a life

[All]
It ain't no fuss!

[Victor]
Join the fam'ly enterprise,
Best be prudent, best be wise!
Time to open up your eyes
Join the fam'ly bus'ness!

[All]
Join the fam'ly enterprise,
Best be prudent, best be wise!
Time to open up your eyes
Join the fam'ly bus'ness!

Join the fam'ly enterprise,
Best be prudent, best be wise
Time to open up your eyes
Come on, come clean
Don't make a scene,
Your name's not Fronk-en-steen!

Join the family business
Learn the family trade
Make yourself a monster
Make the world afraid
This is one position that you never can resign

[Victor]
Do not make a fuss,
There's nothing to discuss
You must be one of us

[All]
Young Frankenstein!
