|Familiar... Why is this so familiar?|
Familiar like something I used to know...
(Used to know)
Familiar... Staring up at the ceiling...
Familiar... I swear that I know this feeling.
Where everybody wants me to be Mom...
(Wants me to be Mom -- Wants me to be Mom)
And everything I do, I do it wrong...
(I do -- I do it wrong)
I'll sway them with a joke or with a song...
(Or with a song)
And maybe that'll help us get along.
Familiar... Why is this so familiar?
Familiar like something I used to do...
(Something I used to do)
Familiar... That she used to throw a tantrum...
Insisting... "But hey, I'm a Diamond, too?"
I bet she drove them crazy all the time.
(Crazy all the time)
They love her, but they're leaving her behind.
With more important places they should be...
(Places they should be)
Than hanging out with someone just like me -- !
Familiar! That's why it's so familiar.
(That's why -- That's why it's so familiar)
Familiar like someone I used to be.
(Someone I used to be)
Familiar! But this time, I've had some practice
(This time, I -- This time, I had some practice)
At helping a struggling family!
(A struggling family)
Oh, I'll get them all together in one place...
And once we're all together face to face...
I'll show them all the error of their ways...
And stop their spread of terror across space!
