korean parents lyrics – randy newman

kids today got problems
liek their parents never had
neighborhoods are dangerous
the public schools are bad
at home there are distractions
so irresistible
the hours fly by
no work gets done

some jewish kids still trying
some white kids trying too
but millions of real american kids
donâ’t have a clue
right here on the lot
we got the answer
a product guaranteed to satisfy

korean parents for sale
you say you’re not all
that you want to be
you say you got a bad environment
your work at school’s not going well

korean parents for sale
you say you need a little discipline
someone to whip you into shape
theyâ’ll be strict but theyâ’ll be fair

look at the numbers
thatâ’s all i ask
whoâ’s at the head of every cl*ss?
you really think
theyâ’re smarter than you are
they just work their *sses off
their parents make them do it

oh, learn to play the violin
oh, to turn your homework
in right on time

what a load off
your back that will be
no tears
no regret
never forget who sent fido
to the farm

the greatest generation
your parents aren’t
the greatest generation
so sick of hearing about
the greatest generation
that generation could be you
so let’s see what you can do
korean parents and you
