Album: Eleven (2011)

  • I ain't complainin'
    But I'm tired, so I'm just sayin'
    What I think
    And if we're being honest
    Then honestly I think I need a drink

    My baby's growin' up
    She thinks she's fallin' all in love
    And that I hate her
    At seventeen, she's just like me when I was seventeen
    So I don't blame her

    Do do do do
    Do do do do
    What are we gonna do?
    Do do do do
    Do do do do
    What are we gonna do about it?

    Remember when we use to be
    Everything they ever need
    We had them believing we were cool
    It's like it happened over night
    We're always wrong, they're always right
    We use to be the one's breakin' the rules
    Now we're just mothers, we're just fathers of
    Teenage daughters

    She rolls her eye's when I'm funny
    But she's sweet when she wants money and her freedom
    Oh my god, she's got a car
    Swears they won't go far
    And I wish I believed 'em

    Do do do do
    Do do do do
    What are we gonna do?
    Do do do do
    Do do do do
    What are we gonna do about it?

    Remember when we use to be
    Everything they ever need
    We had them believing we were cool
    It's like it happened over night
    We're always wrong, they're always right
    We use to be the one's breakin' the rules
    Now we're just mothers, yeah, we're just fathers of
    Teenage daughters

    They're beautiful, wild and free
    Everything we wish we could be
    But they're still crazy
    Oh you know, they make us crazy

    Remember when we use to be
    Everything they ever need
    We had them believing we were cool
    It's like it happened over night
    We're always wrong, they're always right
    We use to be the one's breakin' the rules
    Now we're just mothers, and we're just fathers of
    Teenage daughters

    Yeah teenage daughters

    I ain't complainin'
    But I'm just tired, so I'm just sayin'
    What I think
    If we're being honest
    Then honestly, I think I need a drink Writer/s: MARTINA MCBRIDE, BRAD WARREN, BRETT WARREN
