When I was a girl I dreamed of being invited to a meerkat family reuinion.
Where we'd sit, or stand, or sit, or stand again.
Dig, eat grubs or bugs and stand again
Reminisce about the time when we all had to run to avoid being killed by our neighbours.
And we'd sit, or stand, or sit, or stand again.
Look for hawks or my half-sister who stole my man,
Who I think is now covered in fleas anyway so I'm not really bothered.
There was a time I didn't know if my uncle was also my father.
And a time my cousin overthrew my dominant mother
Then of course we moved 37 times in one calender year
But at least we were together: a family of meerkats!
Who would sit, or stand, or sit, or stand again.
Look to the right, to the left, then right again.
We'd stand in a union, a family reunion
Yes we'd stand, we'd stand, we'd stand, together again!
(Or we could sit, if anybody wanted to do that too...)
