about

Our theme song. It was almost unbearable to record separate tracks with harmony. The next tracks sound better! yet...this is our theme song, and, really, Your Parents only want what's best for you!

lyrics

We are your parents, We are your parents,
We don't intend to interfere, we won't be staying for a year,
We are your parents, We are your parents,
Whatever it is that you do, we'll fit right in and do it too,
We are your parents, We are your parents,
And we only want what's best for you.

She is your mother. I am your mother.
I am not just your father's wife, I have developed my own life,
He is your father. I am your father.
I don't just work I also cry, I'm really quite a feeling guy,
I am your father. And we only want what's best for you.

We went to Woodstock, when we were hippies,
We went to Woodstock, when we were hippies,
I got there early with my band, I left, couldn't use the Portosan,
When we were hippies, When we were hippies,
Love bloomed while Nixon met his fate, conceived you during
Watergate,
When we were hippies, when we were hippies,
Now we only want what's best for you.

Do you have any (Shhhhh!) marijuana?
Do you have any (Shhhhh!) marijuana?
We only want to smoke with you to feel like we're still twenty-two,
Do you have any (Shhhhh!)?
To get the feelings that we miss we really need some cannabis,
Do you have any (Shhhhh!) marijuana,
And we only want what's best for you.

Oh how we love you, oh how we love you!
And though you have our full respect Dad sees some things
you might correct
Oh how we love you, oh how we love you!
And though we're proud you're on your own your mother wants a
daily phone call, cause we love you! oh how we love you!
I am your mother, I am your father,
When we were hippies, when we were hippies,
Do you have any? Do you have any?
We are your parents! We are your parents!
And we only want what's best for you.
