When Cousins Get Together





When cousins get together - 

They ride roller coasters and Ferris wheels 
Play sardines and eat good meals 

Sing Happy Birthday to Hallie Kay
Bowl at the alley and play the arcade 

They run through the snow and slide down the stairs
They go to the mall to dress teddy bears

Gather supplies to make arrows and bows
Perform magic tricks and paint their toes 

They jump high on the trampoline
Then ring in two thousand fourteen

Stay up all night
and never fight

Dance with a horse
(that's me, of course)

Host the perfect New Years bash
Then set up a store to earn some cash

Have slumber parties in their room
Sing Frozen songs and Rainbow Loom

They sit together on a pew
And then they visit BYU

Share secrets, candy, and even clothes
Perform in family talent shows  

And when it's over, all of them cry

Thank goodness we'll be back for the 4th of July
