Teenage Daughters

I ain't complainin', but I'm tired
So I'm just sayin' what I think
And if we're being honest
Then honestly I think I need a drink

My baby's growin' up
She thinks she's fallin' all in love and that I hate her
At seventeen, she's just like me when I was seventeen
So I don't blame her

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
What are we gonna do?
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
What are we gonna do about it?

Remember when we used to be
Everything they'd ever need
We had them believing we were cool

It's like it happened overnight
We're always wrong, they're always right
We used to be the ones breakin' the rules

Now we're just mothers
We're just fathers
Of teenage daughters

She rolls her eyes when I'm funny
But she's sweet when she wants money and her freedom
Oh my god, she's got a car, swears they won't go far
And I wish I believed her

Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
What are we gonna do?
Do, do, do, do, do, do, do, do
What are we gonna do about it?

Remember when we used to be
Everything they'd ever need
We had them believing we were cool

It's like it happened overnight
We're always wrong, they're always right
We used to be the ones breakin' the rules

Now we're just mothers
Yeah, we're just fathers
Of teenage daughters

They're beautiful, wild and free
Everything we wish we could be
But they're still crazy
Oh, you know, they make us crazy

Remember when we used to be
Everything they'd ever need
We had them believing we were cool

It's like it happened overnight
We're always wrong, they're always right
We used to be the ones breakin' the rules

Now we're just mothers
And we're just fathers
Of teenage daughters
Yeah, teenage daughters

I ain't complainin', but I'm tired
So I'm just sayin' what I think
And if we're being honest
Then honestly I think I need a drink
