"Your Mama Don't Dance" as written by Kenneth Clark Loggins and Jim Messina....
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
When evening rolls around and it's time to go to town
Where do you go to rock and roll?

The old folks say that ya gotta end your date by ten
If you're out on a date and you bring it home late, it's a sin
There just ain't no excusin' and you know you're gonna lose and 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
When evening rolls around and it's time to go to town
Where do you go, to rock and roll?

You pull into a drive-in and you find a place to park
You hop into the backseat where you know it's nice and dark
You're just about to move in and you're thinking it's a breeze
There's a light in your eye, and then a guy says,
"Out of the car, Longhair!
Louise, you're coming with me, Local Police!"
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
When evening rolls around, and it's time to go to town
Where do you go to rock and roll?
Where do you go to rock and roll?
Where do you go to rock and roll?
