Cousin, Dad, Cousin, Cousin, Cousin, Dad, Cousin

I ain't got no Cousin no Cousin
I ain't got no...

All I've got's my brother, sister

I ain't got no Cousin no Cousin
I ain't got no...

Mumma gone and left me
(Cousin, Dad)
Mumma gone away
(Cousin, Cousin)
Mumma gonna tell me
(Cousin, Dad)

I've got no Identity.
She's repressed by my (Grandma / Cousin)
She's repressed by my (Grandma / Cousin)

Yeah, it's a truth.
Smoothing the friction,
One becomes two.

Cousin was inspired by Susie Showers; all her great words & clapping.
This was then regurgitated & orchestrated by Squier Squier. DeeDee sung the top line for & we played it. Nearly all the words are by Susie Showers, apart from the “Multiplication” lyric by Squier Squier.
