Lyrics

<p><strong>Beautiful Day in August</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It was a beautiful day in August</p>
<p>The moon was out that night.</p>
<p>Sittin&rsquo; &nbsp;around the kitchen table.</p>
<p>Everything felt so right</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>We were just starting dinner.</p>
<p>Just the five of us that night.</p>
<p>All three girls at home</p>
<p>Oh my, it was quite a sight.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Then Emily had an announcement.</p>
<p>We listened to the news.</p>
<p>She said Molly was having a baby.</p>
<p>My oh my how crazy.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><em><strong>Chorus</strong></em></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong>Oh, there were tears in our eyes.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Oh, we were so surprised.</strong></p>
<p><strong>We weren&rsquo;t sure what to do.</strong></p>
<p><strong>So we had a group hug or two.</strong></p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It was a beautiful day in August.</p>
<p>All the girls were home that night.</p>
<p>Sittin&rsquo; &lsquo;round the kitchen table.</p>
<p>Everything felt so right.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>We started asking questions.</p>
<p>Like when the baby was due.</p>
<p>Molly started to answer. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</p>
<p>Then Casey said there&rsquo;s something else, too.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Molly said there&rsquo;s more.</p>
<p>We wondered what it could be.</p>
<p>She said, &ldquo;Yes, I&rsquo;m having a baby,</p>
<p>But so is my sister, Emily.&rdquo;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><strong><em>Chorus</em><br /></strong></p>
<p><strong>&nbsp;</strong></p>
<p><strong>Oh, there were tears in our eyes.</strong></p>
<p><strong>Oh, we were so surprised.</strong></p>
<p><strong>We weren&rsquo;t sure what to do.</strong></p>
<p><strong>So we had a group hug or two. </strong></p>
<p><strong>Oh yeah, we had a group hug or two.&nbsp;</strong></p>
