MxPx – Family Affair lyrics

Finally met her parents on a Saturday night
They gave me the eye wouldn't let me out of their sight
They didn't like the looks of me right away
They told me to go,
So I decided to stay

Eyes were brown
And my hair was blue
Of course they had a problem with my tattoos
I can't please everybody all the time
So right now all I wanted to was make you mine

Your parents hate, the way I dress
Your parents say my life is a mess
Your parents hate what they don't understand
All I want to do tonight is be your man

Her dad asked what I did
I said I play in a band
He said he hated devil music and he wasn't a fan
Musicians can't be trusted and your job is a joke
I don't want my daughter spending her life broke
After that I didn't really know what to say
So I said I think I'll date your daughter anyway

I can't please everybody all the time
So right now all I wanted to was make you mine

Your parents hate, the way I dress
Your parents say my life is a mess
Your parents hate what they don't understand
All I want to do tonight is be your man

I had to go drop the kids off at the pool
Causes lately I've been having problems with my stool
Came down the stairs, that's when I tripped and fell
Felt like I was on my way straight to hell

Now I think is time to make my way to the door
But for sure tomorrow night, that I'll be back for more

I can't please everybody all the time
So right now all I wanted to was make you mine

Your dad can't stand me
And your mom's in shock
Your brother wants to kill me
And your sister won't talk
The whole dinner table talking about my hair
But I don't really care
It's just a family affair

Your parents hate, the way I dress
Your parents say my life is a mess
Your parents hate what they don't understand
All I want to do tonight is be your man
