Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
But when evening comes around and it's time to hit the town
Where do you go--You gotta rock it

The old folks say that you gotta end your date by ten
But if you're out on a date don't you bring her home late cause it's a sin
You know there's no excuse, you know you're gonna lose, you never win
I'll say it again

And it's all because

Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
But when evening comes around and it's time to hit the town
Where do you go--You gotta rock it

Everyone gather round let me tell you all about it
You see I pulled into a drive-in and I found a place to park
We hopped into the backseat where it's always nice and dark
We're just about to move thinkin' "Bret, this is a breeze"
There's a light in my eye and a guy says "Out of the car, long hair!"

Oowee--you're coming with me
Said the local police

Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
But when evening comes around and it's time to hit the town
Where do you go

Play me a little C.C.

Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
It just ain't cool and it ain't about to stop
Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock
Your Mama don't dance no
You just gotta let 'em know
Your Mama don't dance and your Daddy don't rock and roll
Ah yeah...

    General CommentThis song is about a girl with very old-fashioned parents, and her taking a night on the town. BTW this song was originally done by Kenny Loggins and Jim Messina.

    General CommentNo, you stupid bonehead! This song is about a young MAN who still lives at home with his parents. Because his parents never go out at night to have fun, he ends up trying to nail his girlfriend in his car rather than his own bedroom. This results in his arrest for public indecency by overzealous cops.
