The Posies - Surrender lyrics

Mother told me, yes, she told me
I'd meet girls like you
She also told me, "Stay away
You'll never know what you'll catch"
Just the other day I heard a soldier falling off
Some Indonesian junk that's going round

Mommy's all right, daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay

Father says, "Your mother's right
She's really up on things
Before we were married, your mother served
In the WACs in the Philippines"
Now, I had heard the WACs recruited old maids for the war
But mommy isn't one of those, I've known her all these years

Mommy's all right, daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay

Whatever happened to all this talk of losers of the year?
Well every time I got to thinking, where’d they disappear?
Then I woke up, Mom and Dad were rolling on the couch
Rolling numbers, rock and roll, I got my Kiss records out

Mommy's all right, daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay

Mommy's all right, daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender
But don’t give yourself away, ay, ay, ay

Mommy's all right, Joe's all right
Brian's all right, Ken's all right, and Jon's all right
We're all all right, we're all all right, we're all all right
