Suburban Legends – Do It For The Kids lyrics

Sometimes it's not enough
You start that crying and you empty the stuff
We try, we try to make you happy, it's true
Yes, you are crazy and we know it's true
It's to the point that we don't know what to do
We nod and listen, smile and grin for you

You see, all the kids and horns like to dance
Good times aren't so special when your frown on the past
We are your mom and papa's nightmares
We dance for you to wash away your cares
Crackin' smiles even when we're sad
That's just the way it goes in a ska band

Yeah, kick the beat so you can grind on the floor
Something stinky, smells a stanky, oh no
You best step back, this ain't no joke, it's me
Breakin' hearts when we don't know
Which way a hearts suppose to go
We see you frown, I bet you smell that now, it's me

You see, all the kids and horns like to dance (dance, dance, dance, whooo!)
Good times aren't so special when your frown on the past
We are your mom and papa's nightmares
We dance for you to wash away your cares
Crackin' smiles even when we're sad
That's just the way it goes in a ska band

Okay, you don't care
You run to me with tears
You say that it's not fair
We live only for your happiness
I would have never thought kindness would lead to this
We live in such a dirty world
Times are changing, people pushing
You and me have got a lot to learn
And it's all for you
So everybody, let's sing tonight
Do it for the kids, do it right

We are your mom and papa's nightmares
We dance for you to wash away your cares
Crackin' smiles even when we're sad
That's just the way it goes in a ska band

We are your mom and papa's nightmares
We dance for you to wash away your cares
Crackin' smiles even when we're sad
That's just the way it goes in a ska band

For you and you
For you and you
For you and you
For you and you
For you and you
For you and you
