A touching story of love rekindled, and a family brought together again.

Lyrics

Funny such a little thing
Could lead us back to the tenderness that
Love can bring.
(spoken)
You know, it's been quite a while now since you and I split and went our separate ways.
Separate, yes, except for one thing – our beautiful little boy – our most precious possession. We wanted him to always be
able to see his Mommy and Daddy, so it's only natural that we take turns taking care of him : getting him off to school, helping with his homework, and yes, making sure that he takes that castor oil that he hates so much. So when little Liam came home from school with a note saying that lice had been found in his hair, well we were ready to cooperate in every way possible. They said the whole family would have to shampoo with a special product, and then one person would have to pick through the other's hair, until all of the little eggs, or « nits », were gone. Little did we know that those tiny creatures would change our lives, so wonderfully.

Refrain :
Reunited By Lice
You've got to do the treatment twice
Reunited by lice
Funny such a little thing,
Could lead us back to the tenderness that
Love can bring
(spoken)
We were a little hesitant at first. It had been so long since we'd seen each other for more than a few minutes – you'd drop him off or I'd pick him up; maybe a few conversations about his hockey practices. But oh, when you took that little green bottle and rubbed that unction into my scalp, your fingers sent an electric shock through my body like I'd never felt before. And then sensing you parting my hair over and over, and removing those little white specks... Pretty soon I was getting that old feeling again. From before the bad times, before the lies and recriminations. I could tell that you felt it too, and now we're together again and it's never been better. Little Liam is the happiest kid on the block. And now, if he comes home with one of those notes, we smile and head for the pharmacy cabinet.
Refrain :
Reunited By Lice
You've got to do the treatment twice
Reunited by lice
Funny such a little thing,
Could lead us back to the tenderness that
Love can bring
Bridge :
There's a new love we share now
Though long ago we'd called it quits
You're running your fingers through my hair now
Looking for the nits.

(Refrain)
