Peace Out

[3lw, (Lil' Romeo):]
Romeo (Parents Just Don't Understand)
Double That

[Nick Cannon:]
Peace Out

[Lil' Romeo:]
You know parents are the same no matter time nor place
They don't understand that us kids are gonna make some mistakes
So to you, all the kids all across the land
There's no need to argue, parents just don't understand

[3lw:]
Nah, Nah
They don't understand
They ain't gonna get it
No, no, if you feel me
feel me, feel me, feel me

[Nick Cannon:]
Peace Out

[Lil' Romeo:]
I remember one year
My mom took me school shopping
It was me, my brother, my mom, oh, my pop, and my little sister
All hopped in the car
We headed downtown to the Gallery Mall
My mom started bugging with the clothes she chose
I didn't say nothing at first
I just turned up my nose
She said, "What's wrong? This shirt cost $50"
I said, "This shirt is whack and it's not worth this dollar!"
The next half hour was the same old thing
My mother buying me clothes from 1993
And then she lost her mind and did the ultimate
I asked her for Asissant and she bought me Skips!
I said, "Mom, what are you doing, you're ruining my rep"
She said, "You're only a kid, you don't have a rep yet"
So to you all the kids all across the land
There's no need to argue
Parents just don't understand

[Chorus:]
[3lw:]
Nah, Nah
They don't understand
They ain't gonna get it
No, no, if you feel me
Holla all you kids all across the land
Nah, Nah
They don't understand
They ain't gonna get it
No, no, if you feel me
Holla all you kids all across the land

[Nick Cannon & 3lw:]
Peace out
Oh-kay, here's the situation
My mom's bounced out for a week's vacation and
She left the keys to the 5 double-o
Gee, mom
Well, how's she gonna know
I'll just take it for a little spin
And see what it looks like with 20 inch rims
Then I be the man in my neighborhood
Well, maybe I shouldn't
Yeah, of course I should
Payin' attention, 'cause the plot is hot
Yo, I pulled the car up to the end of my block
That's when I saw this 9 piece starin' at my grill
My CDs blarin from the radio
Then she tried to pretend like she ain't noticed Nick
So I blow a kiss like I know this chic
She said, "Was that for me?"
I said, "Yeah, you know it hun.
Come take a ride with the young Billy B. William."
She said, "How do I know you're not sick?
You could be some kind of lunatic"
"Uh, c'mon sugar, it's Nick for Nick,
besides would a lunatic push a whip like this?"

[Chorus]

[3lw & Nick Cannon:]
I agree that we were on our way
He was lookin real good so we brought a Mustang
Who's car is this?
I'm a little curious
So I stepped on the gas
Fast and furious
Wasn't impressed with the way he burned rubber
The car phone rang
"Yo, who is it?"
"Your mother"
On the phone wielin', the way my mom sounded
There was no way to avoid being grounded
I can't believe it
I just made a mistake
Well, parents are the same no matter time or place
So to all you kids
Across the land
Take it from me
Parents just don't understand

[Chorus (Repeat to Fade)]
