All Kinds of Families
By Dorothy Cresswell, copyright 1995

                                          A                                                 D                   A
There are all kinds of families when we take time to see.
                                                                  D                        E7
When we look at our families, they’re as different as can be.
                                              A                                         D
But the fact about a family is that love is the key,
              A                           E7-A
Yes, it’s love that makes a family.


                             E7                                                           A
Some families come through marriage and many through birth,
                                            E7                                        A
And many through adoptions all over the earth.
                                  E7                                               A
But whatever way they come to be, our families have great worth,
                                          E7-A
For it’s love that makes a family!

Some families have a mom and dad, a boy or a girl.
Some of us have folks who came from all around the world,
Some families have two moms or dads and precious boys or girls.
Oh, it’s love that makes a family!

Some families have lots of pets and some families have none.
And all of us have chores to do, but when the chores are done,
There are special ways and special days our families have fun,
Oh, it’s love that makes a family!

Some families stay together and some families change
And they live in separate houses but the love remains.
Whether mommy or your daddy or grandparents tuck you in.
Oh, it’s love that makes a family!

And some of us use one last name and some of us use two.
Some are easy to spell and some are hard to do.
But each and every family has folks like me and you!
Oh, it’s love that makes a family!
