Lyrics: Uncle Ruth Buell.
Tune: Uncle Ruth Buell.


Bobby and his sister live with a Miss and Mister,
Who vowed to love for better or for worse.
And Bobby really loves his folks and doesn’t understand the jokes.
His mom’s a doctor, and his dad’s a nurse.

And they’re a family, a real family.
There may be dust upon the floor; the roof might leak above.
But they’re a family, a real family,
That’s living in a house that’s made of love.

Maya and her mother live alone; there are no other
People in the house, but still they get along.
And their laughing and their singing sound like fifty bells a-ringing,
So let’s put them in the chorus of our song.

’Cause they’re a family, a real family.
There may be dust upon the floor; the roof might leak above.
But they’re a family, a real family,
That’s living in a house that’s made of love.

Susie and her brother, they live with their mother
And someone whom their mother loves a lot.
And they’ve got a cat named Rover and a dog who won’t roll over.
And I’ll tell you something else that they have got.

They’ve got a family, a real family.
There may be dust upon the floor; the roof might leak above.
But they’re a family, a real family,
That’s living in a house that’s made of love.

Now, all of you who hear this song, if there’s a place where you belong,
I don’t care if you’re young or if you’re grown.
If there is someone special who will love you and be close to you,
You never have to feel you’re all alone.

’Cause you’re a family, a real family.
There may be dust upon the floor; the roof might leak above.
But they’re a family, a real family,
That’s living in a house that’s made of love.
