You say I waste my life away, but I live it to the full
And how would you know anyway, you're just mister dull
Why don't you get into the things we do today
You could lose twenty years right away, so we say

We don't need, no, no no no parental guidance here

Every day you scream at me to turn the music low
Well if you keep on screaming, you'll make me deaf you know
You always chew me out, because I stay out late
Until your three-piece suit comes back in date, get one thing straight

There's no communication
I'm tired of explanation
Is this message getting through
You went through the same thing too
Don't you remember what it's like to lose control
Put on my jacket - for you get too old
Let's rock n' roll

    General CommentThis song was written in direct response to the "Washington wives", ie Tipper Gore and her cronies trying to get metal banned, but having to settle for getting Parental Guidance stickers on the albums instead.
    Rob is saying we dont need no Parental guidance, as in, we are smarter than you and you have no right to criticise us, you think you are better than us because of who you are, where you live and how you dress, but rockers judge people differently and dont need some asshole politicians old frigid wife with her knickers in a twist telling us whats good for us so fuck off!, but the priest do it in style by laughing off their demands rather than giving them another excuse to attack.
    Hence continuing to be the true "Defenders of the faith"
