Pete Seeger – Be Kind To Your Parents lyrics

Be kind
To your parents
Though they
Don't deserve it
They're grown ups
A difficult stage
Of life

They're apt
To be nervous
And overexcited
From the daily storm
And strife

Just keep in mind
Though it sounds odd
I know
Those parents
Once were
Children long ago

So treat them
With patience
And kind understanding
In spite
Of the foolish things
They do

Some day
You may wake up
And find
You're a parent too
