You wouldn’t let me join a rock band
Pierce my ears or get tattoos
Even threw away my cigarettes
Mighta’ saved my life a time or two

Dragged me to the orthodontist
Made me get a haircut too
Signed me up for piano lessons
Taught me everything you knew

So instead of going nowhere
Look at me a real adult
Payin’ taxes and painting the garage
Mom and dad it’s all your fault

Always wanted that corner office
Today they handed me the key
Got a few letters after my last name
Look what you’ve done to me

So instead of going nowhere
Look at me a real adult
Growin’ vegetables and takin’ out the trash
Mom and dad it’s all your fault

Got my little ones beside me
Layin’ flowers on your graves
Won’t be long before they hear your voice in me
And I’ll be glad to take the blame

So instead of going nowhere
Look at me a real adult
Bedtime stories before I hit the lights
Mom and dad it’s all your fault
