Although it may not be apparent to you
the non apparent parent in you
is more than apparent to me

Although to be perfectly fair
it’s not likely I’ll mess with a hair
as long as it’s taking good care

But when it gets too big for its thighs
when it starts to guilt and to criticize

Something will change in the blink of our eyes
and it’ll be fighting with someone its size

Even though it may not be apparent to me
I’m gonna go running to the parent in me

If I tell my dad he’ll have something to say
if I tell my mom there’ll be hell to pay
