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!!
