"Surrender" as written by and Rick Nielsen....
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

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
