Was Mum ever a teenage girl?

    Did Dad ever hang out?

Where did they learn to nag at kids

    And also how to shout?


Do all parents pass on these skills?

    Is there a course for this?

And, oh how they embarrass you

    When they hug and kiss!


When I’m a Dad then things will change –

    I’ll never shout or scream –

But before then I must find Miss Right

    For she’s part of my scheme!!
