Hey Mom, why didn't you tell me?
Why didn't you teach me a thing or two?
You just let me go, out into the world,
You never thought to share what you knew.

So I walked under a bus,
I got hit by a train,
Keep fallin' in love,
Which is kind of the same,
I've sunk out at sea, crashed my car, gone insane,
And it felt so good, I wanna do it again.

Hey Mom, why didn't you warn me?
'Cause about boys there's something I should have known,
They're like chocolate cake, like cigarettes,
I know they're bad for me but I just can't leave 'em alone.

(Repeat Chorus)

Hey Mom, since we're talkin',
What was it like when you were young?
Has the world changed or is still the same?
A man can kill and still be the sweetest fun.

(Repeat Chorus)

    a story of a girl who was experiencing the bitterness of falling in love, and maybe because of lack of advices from her mom... but although she is into it she was still feeling good and consider it as a sweetest fun... great it...-)

    I thought! It was a daughter who speaks in the song. And he blaming her parents. Because she letting her where she's now.
