A responsible parent

A responsible parent
Provides food to eat
A nice place to live
And shoes on your feet

A responsible parent
Holds onto their child
Wherever they go
So they don’t run wild

A responsible parent
Warns them of danger
Don’t talk or take candy
From any stranger

A responsible parent
Lets their child to swim
So they won't drown
In case they fall in

A responsible parent
Lets their child have fun
But they also make sure
Their homework is done

A responsible parent
Warns you if you drive
Don’t ever get drunk
Or you may not survive

A responsible parent
Let’s you join the service
A risk you'll be taking
But they won't act nervous

A responsible parent
Lets you go your own way
Hiking communist borders
There forever they'll stay
