Lyrics Kids

I don't know what's wrong with these kids today
Who can understand anything they say
They are disobedient disrespectful oafs
Noisy, crazy sloppy, lazy loafers and while we're on the subject
You can talk and talk till' your face is blue
But they still do just what they want to do
Why can't they be like we were
Perfect in every way
What's the matter with kids today
I've tried to raise you the best I could
All the things I've done were for your own good
Can't you once appreciate how I've sacrificed
Working, slaving scrimping saving, pennies and living with your father
No one know the burdens
I've had to bear
And in my condition, Kids
I'm a poor sick woman and does he care, Hah
Go on, go on and kill me
That's what it's coming to
When a mother has kids like you
Momma take it easy
All the chicken soup that I made for you
Now you throw me out like a worn out shoe
Not in front of everybody mom
After all I haven't been such an awful son
I never sass you back or leave a ring around the bath tub
And don't I always phone you
You can give your life to them night and day
Then they go get married and move away
Married huh
Why do we have these children
Why do we have these children better to have a pet
You know where you stand with the pet hee, Albert
I never asked for nothing
What's the matter with kids
Nothing is what you get
What's the matter with kids
I tried Lou, but I failed
Don't try to pay me back, sonny
Oh, you didn't mama you didn't
I forgive you
So what if you're an ingrate
So long as you're happy
I don't wanna be happy
Don't feel guilty just make believe I'm an old used car
Junk me leave me in the gutter
Oh, I'll never leave you, never
You heard him you're a witness
I promise mama
I never broke promise to my mama good boy
Why can't they be like Albert
Why can't they be like Albert perfect in every way
Whats the matter with kids
Yeah, what's the matter with kids
Nothing's the matter with
Nothing's the matter with kids today kids today
