"We Are Family"

MAGIC PENNY
by Malvina Reynolds
edited by Benjamin Faust

Love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.

Love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.

It's just like a magic penny,
Hold it tight and you won't have any.
Lend it, spend it, and you'll have so many
They'll roll all over the floor.

For love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.

Love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.

Money's dandy and we need to use it,
But love is priceless if you don't refuse it.
It's a treasure and you'll never lose it
Unless you lock up your door.

For love is something if you give it away,
Give it away, give it away.
Love is something if you give it away,
You end up having more.


LOVE'S WHAT I'M GOING TO DO

VERSE 1:
You might be called a sinner or a saint
We use so many brushes and varieties of paint
But your life is your canvas
and it's your own work of art
So don't let others write your song
just sing it from your heart

CHORUS:
I know that you're not me
That's what make us a beautiful symphony
And if there is evil in this world
It would be forcing my will on you
So love's what I'm going to do

VERSE 2:
Others might have told you that you're bad
For loving someone different from
the preferences they have
But your love is your sacred place
it's your own shining star
So don't let others write your song
you are perfect as you are

(chorus)

BRIDGE:
I hope that every word I say to you
puts a smile of joy upon your face
For you are beautiful, a brightly shining star
you're a glorious miracle,
exactly as you are


VERSE 3:
I hope you sleep in peace tonight
and I hope that in your dreams, you pierce the clouds in flight
and may your sweetest dreams become reality
And don't let others write your song
just sing it and be free!


(chorus)


I love you!

Family is not just about blood relatives, but about those we care for, love abundantly, accept no matter what, and sometimes they call us family, too.
