The Lyrics

Actually, the song I heard before the original was "Music For nothing" by an UK filk band called Phoenix ( I want my, I want my, I want my DNR

Lookit them parents, that's the way you do it
Drive your kids nuts with your OCD
That ain't loving, that's the way you do it
I'd rather get aborted - it's a free country!
That ain't loving, that's the way you do it
Tell me why you think kids are dumb
Maybe give a blister on the hands with a ruler
Maybe give a blue blot on their bum

We gotta hang upthe phone and the noose too
Then gotta plead for DNRs
We gotta moe out of these damn houses
Why can't we just get you behind bars?

See the mighty father with the vodka and the smoke-stick:
Yeah buddy, he's in love with death.
That mighty father raped a 9-year-old girl
That filthy father, not a "little" bad.

We gotta hang upthe phone and the noose too
Then gotta plead for DNRs
We gotta moe out of these damn houses
Why can't we just get you behind bars?

I wanna be older, sign that paper
I wanna be rich to buy my gun.
Lookit that mama got screaming in delivery
Man, she coulda use that one.
And what's that? Some Makarenko?
They're banging on the kid's head like a chimpanzee
That ain't raising, that's right-out sadism
Get insurance for nothing and you're roaming free

We gotta hang upthe phone and the noose too
Then gotta plead for DNRs
We gotta moe out of these damn houses
Why can't we just get you behind bars?

Lookit them parents, that's the way you do it
Drive your kids nuts with your discipline
That ain't loving, that's the way you do it
I'd rather get aborted - it's a free country!
I'd rather get aborted - it's a free country!

I want my, I want my, I want my DNR!

NOOOOOO!!! I screwed up the link? Or somebody else did screw up the link? What is going on?

You left out the closing quote mark in your html link, though I can't figure out how this also wound up left-aligned. Previewing your paordies is always a good idea, especially if there are links involved.

I like the different layout though! Gotta give credit for that!

Not the end tag... I left out a damn quotation mark... LOL. Gotta learn to proofread, eh? :-)
