1. In-Laws

About The Song…
♫♪ Like my brother Mike says, you have to love our dad's background vocals and John Opiela's playing…Our first shot at Polka…We had a blast recording this! Mike played the Johnny Rabb Rhythmsaw drum sticks which produced a Guiro effect on the rim of the snare drum. Certainly, this isn’t about my In-Laws… perhaps yours? C’mon – sing along…

La da da-da, La da da-da,
La da da da da da
La da da-da, La da da-da,
La da da da da da

And In-laws are this, and In-Laws are that
To them, I'm an In-Law, too
Now, I won't change them, and they won't change me
It's all punishment for the married

So, wish us your best, but don't call collect
Call if you win the lottery
Oh, In-Laws say this and In-Laws do that
How's this, "Happily ever after"?

La da da-da, La da da-da,
La da da da da da (IN LAWS!)
La da da-da, La da da-da,
La da da da da da
