Some kids grow up to be
Just like mommy or daddy
Parents instill in their head
That they are better that way instead
Now that does not make sense to me
Who cares if they have good role models
It's boring to have a carbon copy

Not all children want to be or do
Everything they tell them to
Most don't even like all their chores
Few just learn not to argue
But when they express what they like best
How 'bout sit back and hear the rest

'Cause mommy, daddy, I don't want to be
A ballet dancer, act on Broadway or T.V.
And I sure as hell hate to go
To that place called church, oh fuck no

Perhaps I want to be a scientist
Why would you even be pissed
All because I might no longer be religious
Or maybe I really like rock and roll
Don't want to do anything I'm told
Not gonna' join the family business
Wherever I go, it will not be your business
I refuse to be your Hollywood
Who cares if I'm misunderstood

I don't want to dress like this
Don't want to act like that
I don't want to play sports, Dad
Or maybe I do, gonna' grab a bat
Time to swing and fuckin' smash
All your dreams for me
They're finally past
