The Teeter Family History
I got them old genealogy blues again momma
I can't get anything straight
Seems your cousin was married to a, no, wait.
then again, grandpa had a ma, and she was a, darn, what was that name?
did you remember, or perhaps recall,
was there anything in the attic at all?
Newspapers, letters, files and such,
oh mom, its not so much.
the post man throws the mail at the box
poor man, wonder how that came about
the local librarian, well, she glares at me when I arrive,
she would rather I stayed out of the archive
The clerk at the court house , they know me by name
and they smile and grin, as I say how much again?
hubby says, no more trips to the cemetery, he knows me well
when I get that gleam in my eye, and say, hey, lets go for a drive
you would think my children would appreciate,
the work that I am doing,the staying up late
but when they say, oh no, genealogy again!
well, I just don't understand
I mean, hey, we can trace our tree, all the way to.....
no wait, not that one, this one, yep, all the way back to
this one and that, they roll their eyes, and flee
they are tired and not impressed with all of that
but one day, they will thank me I am sure
because I know we are related to, no, not him,
where do I have that again?
