Original lyrics

(King/Badarou/P. Gould)

I've got a scientific mind
The inquiring kind
I always make the right connections
My dad ain't like the other guys
Won the Nobel Prize
For history

He wrote a book that made them weep
and made a quantum leap
And pushed me in the same direction
I read and clearly understood
Like he knew I would
The first time he set eyes on me

Looking back it's so bizarre,
It runs in the family.
All the things we are
On the backseat of the car
No safer place to be
We only see so far
cause we all have our daddy's eyes
Looking back it's so bizarre

I've run, the movie in my head
watch it in my bed
I always played the starring role
It's me with my dad in perfect years
But it ends in tears
When I leave home

Each day, I'd climb the learning curve
never lose my nerve
Till I come full circle in my soul
So strange, that the mother of my child
Wore my mother's smile
The first time she set eyes on me

Looking back it's so bizarre,
always a mystery
It always leaves a scar
From the backseat of the car
No sense of history
We only see so far
And we all have our daddy's eyes
Looking back it's so bizarre
Runs in the family
All the things we are
Looking back it's so bizarre

Hey hey, we keep it running in the family
Hey hey, we keep on coming in the family
(repeat twice)

Looking back it's so bizarre,
It runs in the family.
All the things we are
On the backseat of the car
No safer place to be
We only see so far
cause we all have our daddy's eyes
Looking back it's so bizarre
always a mystery
It always leaves a scar
From the backseat of the car
No sense of history
We only see so far
And we all have our daddy's eyes
Looking back it's so bizarre

Running in the family
Running in my family
Cause we all have our daddy's eyes
Looking back it's so bizarre

Running in the family (Till fade)
