Mcmlix (1959) Lyrics

Mcmlix (1959) Father John, Mother Margret Ann
They did the twist and watched the Ed Sullivan Show
Went to drive-ins for adventure, but they could never see
Somebody locked the door shut and they're looking for the key
They better cool it down when they fool around
Dad's '57 Chevy is only 2 years old.

And I say "They try to make us try to break us
Saying you can't go out at night
No time for sorrow gotta work tomorrow
Even though that you can do it
They try to make us try to break us
Saying no one comes over tonight
Even though we do it just like they did
Way back in 1959"

Things changed they ran away
Had a child on their wedding day
Sat back and watched the world spin around
You know they tried, tried couldn't make the rent
Too many nights spent getting lit
Your mom and pop were not so innocent you know

And I say "They try to make us try to break us
Saying you can't go out at night
No time for sorrow gotta work tomorrow
Even though that you can do it
They try to make us try to break us
Saying no one comes over tonight
Even though we do it just like they did
Way back in 1959

Well I fucked up and I had a good time
I can't complain
But they tell me to 'cool it down.
Don't you fool around'
Before I die, I wanna live
Look at yourself and you'll see me

They keep telling us how to live your life
Even though that you can do it
They keep telling you how to live your life
Even though we do it just the way they did.
