Every family has one. Somehow they attain happiness and retain it and life smiles on them. How do they do it?


Here's a song for Cousin Joe
We saw him come and we saw him go
And that's about all you need to know
'Cause he never done nothing at all

He never wined, he never dined
He never loved, and he never pined
And all he said was ‘never mind,
I never done nothing at all’

Cousin Joe, he was there
Happy as a millionaire
How I wish I could share
The secret of his savoir faire

He never served, he never fought
He wasn't dumb, but he wasn't taught
He wasn't shunned, but he wasn't sought
'Cause he never done nothing at all

And when they laid his bones to rest
They asked his friend who knew him best
And on that stone the mason dressed
Was he never done nothing at all, in style
He never done nothing at all, but while
He never done nothing at all he'd smile
'Cause he never done nothing at all


from Snaps, released January 1, 1995
