Ask your mommy and daddy
“What happened to the Indian?
How come they’re all living in places
With too much snow or too much sand?”

Tell your mommy
“I got a funny feeling deep inside of me”
Ask your daddy
“Is it really as bad as people make it seem?”

Wa ta tick it ta too too
Wa ta tick it ta too too
Wa ta tick it ta too too
Wa ta tick it ta too too
Wa ta tick it ta

Ask your mommy
Why everybody swallows all those little pills
Ask your daddy
Why doesn’t that soldier care who he kills

After they’ve put you
To sleep and tucked you safely down in your bed
Whisper, “Mommy and Daddy
Would you rather that I learned it from my friends instead?

Do you think I’m to young to know, to see, to feel, or hear
My questions need an answer or a vacuum will appear”
Don’t be surprised if they turn and walk away
And tell your mommy and daddy that you love 'em anyway

That you love them anyway
Give them a kiss
Love will set you free
Kings of EMI
