The Lyrics

I'm a band parent, I'm a band parent
Keepin' kids in line at halftime
I'm a band parent, I'm a band parent
I'm haulin' drums

I was so naïve when my daughter did receive
The note that said that she had made it
I didn't realize that every band relies
On parent's time and cash to aid it

I'm a band parent, I'm a band parent
I'm a sousaphone chaperone
I'm a band parent, I'm a band parent
I'm cleanin' horns

Band takes a trip, each year, out to someplace hip
This year the destination's Boston
They make the parents pay their own little darling's way
So they don't care what it is costin'

I'm a band parent, I'm a band parent
Raisin' funds all day, all must pay
I'm a band parent, I'm a band parent
My money's gone

Ah, another glimpse into the future! Except with me learning guitar, would that make my daughter a "Band Child?" Funny song, I hope my daughter doesn't go for the drums!

I'm the product of a doting band parent...and although I play 4 instruments, have never made a red cent off of this particular talent. Mum's SO proud!! ;-) 555

Nice job... the underlying truth of your parody reminds me to renew my vows to allow mine to only join kazoo bands in the future!

Thanks Jeff, AFW, alvin, John, PMS, Kristof, TJC. "Band" is a four letter word. So is "debt". Coincidence? I've learned not.

oh, please! Don't think that all parents of Band Nerds are caring like this. My parents donated ZERO time or money to my brother's and my band experiences. But my friends' parents could have written this song.
