Songs we sing our parents sung

Songs we sing our parents sung
words that creep out of your mouth
crooners from the 50’s & 60’s
all bobby socks & twirling dresses
stuff we swore
would never pass our lips
yet does
‘cos I said so
my house my rules
do as I say
classics the whole way
& as we didn’t expect our parents
to understand
our kids don’t expect us to get them too
this circle will go on
who would want it any other way
than songs we sing our parents sang
mishearing lyrics along the way
