Caetano Veloso – Be Kind To Your Parents lyrics
(Feat. Moreno Veloso)

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

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

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

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

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

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

Just keep in mind
It may seem hard
I know
Those parents
Once were
Children long ago
Incredible

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

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

    I have this song on a "make room for daddy" episode, sung slow and very touching. But it means more to me now than ever, as I have 3 adult children who refuse to talk to me. They have broken more laws than you can count, but because, at times, they put me in the very difficult position of having to make hard decisions, and they have had to pay for their own behavior (drug treatment, etc.), they now hate me. They hold me to a much higher standard than they hold themselves to, and I can't be perfect enough. I've done my best in parenting, but my best wasn't good enough. If you're reading this heartbroken mother's story, please just be kind to your parents. It means more than all the gifts or all the kindness of other people to your mother and father.
