Lyrics of We Are The People Our Parents Warned Us About

I was supposed to have been
A Jesuit priest or a Naval Academy grad
That was the way that my parents perceived me
Those were the plans that they had
But I couldn't fit the part too dumb or too smart
Ain't it funny how we all turned out
I guess we are the people our parents warned us about
You know I coulda worked the rigs when the money was big
Or hopped a freighter south to Trinidad
And when they tried to draft me I earned a college degree
Buyin' time 'til things were not so bad
But then I got a guitar found a job in a bar
Playin' acid rock 'til I was numb
Tell me where are the flashbacks they all warned us would come
We are the people they couldn't figure out
We are the people our parents warned us about
Hey hey, Gardner McKay take us on the Leaky Tiki with you
Clear skies bound for Shanghai sailing cross the ocean blue so blue
Now I got quarters in my loafers tryin' to fight inflation
When it only used to take a cent
Sometimes I wish I was back in my crashpad days
Before I knew what cash flow meant
Seems everybody's joggin' or heavy into health shit
Don't tell me that
I ought to get rolfed
'Cos I love cajun martinis and playin' afternoon golf
We are the people there isn't any doubt
We are the people they still can't figure out
We are the people who love to sing
Twist and shout shake it up baby
We are the people our parents warned us about
Isn't any doubt hey hey hey
Gardner McKay
I wanna sail away today isn't any doubt
They warned us about hey hey hey
Come on now Gardner McKay
I wanna sail away today
