"Our family isn't normal!",
you often like to say.
What's wrong with popping wheelies
in a mower race with Ray???
So what if dad likes mooning
and showing off his rear.
You might see when you're older,
You will face your biggest fear.
Your house will be just like ours!
Your kids will all be nuts!
I hope you're ready for this life...
Do you think you've got the guts?
Will you laugh it off
when your "sweetheart" needs a ride...
(even when she say she hopes
you'll duck your head and hide?)
I hope you will remember
how it felt to be thirteen.
When your family isn't normal,
and your dad's "King of the Bean".
