lyrics

You were born in 1919
In Manhattan long ago
It seems like an eternity
Now that I'm old enough to know
That through the years that you did sing
and play a banjo right and true
your words would come to haunt me and you

I was born 50 years later
A little late to have a son they'd say
Well you taught me love through music
You even taught me how to play
But now that I am 16
And hanging out in a different scene
The music that you taught me, well it ain't me

I'm gettin' drunk with Henry Rollins
While Ian Mackaye shakes his head
H.R. teaches me how to sing
While Mike Ness shows me how to dress
And believe when I tell you dad
That I love you all the same
But punk rock is drivin' me insane

Well I traded in your old banjo
For a brand new six-string guitar
I pierced my nose, I wear ratty clothes
I even stole my mother's car
That folk rock shit
I've had enough of it
I'm tired of playing games
No more hippy sing-a-longs
And punk rock's to blame

I'm gettin' drunk with Henry Rollins
While Ian Mackaye shakes his head
H.R. teaches me how to sing
While Mike Ness shows me how to dress
And believe when I tell you dad
That I love you all the same
But punk rock is drivin' me insane
