The chorus notes that her forehead is lined with worry. The members observe that her face is flushed and wet from crying.

You are his great-great-aunt (or great-great-uncle) and he is your great-great-nephew. * A much less-used US term for the relationship is great-grandnephew which follows the logic that your niece's grandson is your sibling's great-grandson, so would have the same generation-separation from both you and your sibling.
