gettin' through to a teenager,
is truly a task from hell;
smackin' 'em across the lips,
could land your butt in jail!
with heads thicker than concrete,
you tell 'em left, they'll go right;
all we want is what's best for them,
why is it such a fight?!
times have changed since our day,
parenting's a difficult job;
penetrating the skull of a teenager,
is like pourin' water on a door knob!
society's become too soft,
both beyond and underneath;
if i had ever "sassed" my folks,
i'd be searchin' for my teeth!
