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

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
