  • You say I waste my life away
    But I live it to the full
    And how would you know anyway?
    You're just mister dull
    Why don't you get into the things we do today
    You could lose twenty years right away
    So we say

    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here
    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here

    Every day you scream at me to turn the music low
    Well if you keep on screaming
    You'll make me deaf you know
    You always chew me out because I stay out late
    Until your three-piece suit comes back in date
    Get one thing straight

    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here
    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here

    There's no communication
    I'm tired of explanation
    Is this message getting through?
    You went through the same thing too

    Don't you remember what it's like to lose control?
    Put on my jacket before you get too old
    Let's rock n' roll

    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here
    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here

    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here
    We don't need no, no, no, no
    Parental guidance here

    Oh no
    One life
    And I'm gonna live it up Writer/s: Glenn Raymond Tipton, Kenneth Downing, Rob Halford
