Lyrics[edit]

    Mother told me, yes, she told me I'd meet girls like you
    She also told me, "Stay away, you never know what you'll catch"
    Well just the other day I heard a soldier falling off
    Some Indonesian junk that's going round
    
    Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away
    
    Father says, "Your mother's right, she's really up on things"
    "Before we married, Mommy served in the WACS in the Philippines"
    Now, I had heard the WACS recruited old maids for the war
    But mommy's neither one of those, I've known her all these years
    
    Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away
    
    Whatever happened to all this season's losers of the year?
    Every time I got to thinking, where'd they disappear?
    When I woke up, Mom and Dad were fucking on the couch
    Rolling numbers, rock and roll, got my Kiss records out
    
    Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away
    
    Away
    
    Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away
    Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away
    
    We're all alright, we're all alright
    We're all alright, we're all alright
    We're all alright, we're all alright
