Lyrics

Beautiful Day in August

 

It was a beautiful day in August

The moon was out that night.

Sittin’  around the kitchen table.

Everything felt so right

 

We were just starting dinner.

Just the five of us that night.

All three girls at home

Oh my, it was quite a sight.

 

Then Emily had an announcement.

We listened to the news.

She said Molly was having a baby.

My oh my how crazy.

 

Chorus

 

Oh, there were tears in our eyes.

Oh, we were so surprised.

We weren’t sure what to do.

So we had a group hug or two.

 

It was a beautiful day in August.

All the girls were home that night.

Sittin’ ‘round the kitchen table.

Everything felt so right.

 

We started asking questions.

Like when the baby was due.

Molly started to answer.            

Then Casey said there’s something else, too.

 

Molly said there’s more.

We wondered what it could be.

She said, “Yes, I’m having a baby,

But so is my sister, Emily.”

 

Chorus

 

Oh, there were tears in our eyes.

Oh, we were so surprised.

We weren’t sure what to do.

So we had a group hug or two.

Oh yeah, we had a group hug or two.
