It's Time For The Family Reunion!
--------------------------------------

Dozens of cousins are everywhere:
Some in the driveway, some on the stair,
Some in the kitchen, some in the air
(Jumping for joys).
Dozens of cousins are EVERYWHERE...

Dozens of cousins are having fun:
Some snacking cookies, some having none,
Some being quiet, some on the run
(Those screeching boys).
Dozens of cousins are having fun!

Dozens of cousins are playing hard:
Some in the water, some in the yard,
Some acting prisoner, some standing guard
(Make-believe toys).
Dozens of cousins are playing hard...

Dozens of cousins are doing chores:
Some stacking dishes, some sweeping floors,
Some running errands, some behind doors
(Making no noise!).
Dozens of cousins are doing chores.

Dozens of cousins are off to sleep:
Some going quietly, like little sheep,
Some doing giggles; "Don't make a peep!"
(Hiding their ploys).
Dozens of cousins are off to sleep...

Dozens of cousins are saying good-bye:
Last hugs and kisses, leaving a sigh;
"I touched you last!" "Don't anyone cry!"
(The real McCoys).
Dozens of cousins are saying GOOD-BYE...

...until NEXT year!
