The Lyrics

The two OS songs I'm using here are on the 'Dead's "American Beauty" album of 1970. When you play that CD you will find that one runs right into the other (with a instrumental bridge connecting them). So I decided to use both of them to tell this parody story. Bracketed lyrics {like this} are sung to OS instrumental parts.

{Sitting 'round the breakfast table}
{with my 15 year-old teen-age girl}
{things seemed just fine}
{so I will tell you}
{this story now}
{a special tale of mine}

We were sitting 'round
the breakfast table
When my daughter's robe
became undone
Sneaking into view
a shiny object
I said "Tell me, dear,
just what is that thing for?"

"Daddy, don't be dense"
My daughter told me
She looked at me like
I was dumb
"Everyone knows"
she did declare
"It's a nipple-ring"
... I fell out of my chair

"Nipple-ring; oy, daughter
have your common sense you lost?
Where did it go?"

She kind of laughed
"You're so funny, Daddy"
then she pulled on her robe
to hold it closed
she must have known
could not have doubted
This was not the last
she would hear of this

I said, "My dear
please see this my way
A girl your age
should not wear those rings
So I say, "No,
I will not allow
a daughter of mine
to wear a nipple-ring"

"Nipple-rings, my father
are the latest fashion trend
for girls my age
If your silly rule
you make me follow
then boys won't call
I'll end up alone
as an old maid
prob'ly a lesbian
Yeah, I'll end up gay
and living here at home"

[Break up in laughter at start of "doo, doo-doo-doo" section, then -]
{Dear, that's a Hoot...very funny}
{I'm late for work - so I gotta scoot}
{we'll talk tonight, but do me a favor}
{Have a nice day at school}
{and keep that thing out of sight}

[Instrumental lead into "Brokedown Palace"]
[during instrumental bridge - brief spoken Narrative]

{later that evening...sitting around the living room}

Dear, that was so very funny
I have not laughed that hard in quite some time
Yeah, your words made me picture
you are gay! - living at home

Staying home to live with your parents
What a hoot! That's so cute! How hysterical!
Laughed so hard for so long that it hurt my sides
Laughed so hard; you're a card
Man, I lost control

what a joke
You must think that
I'm a total dope
That I'd buy that BS
and let you wear that

Daughter pouted at me
"You must really hate me
you did this to keep me
sad and all alone"
"That's not fair" was my reply
"And we both do know it
that dumb drama scene
of your's won't work
my answer's still "No"

Answer's "No"
We both know
that no matter how
you whine and moan
There's no way in Hell
I'll let you wear
that nipple-ring

Ran into her room and wept upon her pillow
She wept on her bed
It was a real big show
"Honey, real good try"
I said to my daughter
Will not change my mind
the answer still is "No"

"Go to Hell"
This she yelled
"I hate you, Dad
so go to Hell"
Man, she sounded bitter
should I reconsider?
Well, let me think...

{I'll give in - Giving in - on this thing}
{"cause after all}
{it is just a ring}
{Giving in - she can wear that ring}
{after all that ring is just a thing}
("cause after all}
{a nipple-ring is}
{just a thing}

a piercing the happy ending

May I suggest an alternative course of action if this is based on real experiences? Go to Google and run the phrase "mastitis following nipple piercing" and show her some of the results. You can start with the following one, it has some "nice" pictures:

Oh, wow, like, so (assuming for the moment this is a mostly true story) your daughter had a 'wardrobe malfunction' in front of you? That's awkward, but then you see a nipple ring; even more awkward. I hope that if (when) I have kids they don't do things just because it is trendy. Heck, even if I got crackin' now it would be 17 years before this could be my problem - who knows what the trends will be then - pierced eyeballs maybe? lol Normally I look at links Peter leaves, but in this case I think I'll pass.... oh, 5s for telling a great story. Let us hope she has no 'other' piercings.

Pat...yeah, I know...ain't it great? Thanks, always have that option when you are dealing with an "imaginary family" in some "imaginary life". Peter, thanks for the note of concern...fortunately, as I noted to alvin, it's all just made up people...No, I was not suggesting that ANYONE should get a piercing of any type OR that "Pop" should necessarily be a push-over in accepting it...or that he shouldn't either...I just wanted a "Happy Ending" - Red, as you can see above, this is a purely fictional story...and hopefully when/if you have a daughter of that age she will have been given enough "Mature Guidance" to be able to determine on her own that doing things to your body has consequences that go far beyond whatever dubious benefits "fitting in" with a peer group or keeping up with "current trends" might offer. But I'm such a push-over that IF I had a 15-year old daughter I'd probably cave in just as easy as the "Dad" in my parody...
