"Surrender" as written by Keith D. Sweat, Eric Mccaine and Tabitha Rachael Duncan....
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 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 isn't 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
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 are rolling on the couch
Rolling numbers, rock and rolling, 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
Away

Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird
Surrender, surrender but don't give yourself away

    General CommentThis really is one kickass song, I liked the first one by Cheap Trick and now that Less Than Jake has redone it, it's really kickass. There's a ton of shit I can relate to in it and its awesome just to listen to.

    My Interpretationwell it's the bonus song on a 13 track LP. call me crazy but there's a lot of wisdom about 2-week cycles in this wonderful masterpiece of an unbiased record titled 'anthem'. this song is like a huge paycheck to me.
