This is a simple song about a matriarchal miracle,
We mean it to be loving and a little bit satirical.
Today we join together in a mood thatís celebrational
To honor a great lady who for us is inspirational.
Our story starts some
years ago in lovely
When Jean and Ed were
twins, so lively and so
Now everyone considered these two little girls identical,
From ribboned hair to stockinged feet to dresses sentimentical.
Although, as twins, the little girls had many similarities,
From babyhood both sisters had distinctive personalities.
So Foxie grew, and Brownie too, and played and fought as sisters do,
And Ed and Jean were proud to be the parents of such progeny!
