They tell you what’s cool, they tell you who’s hot.
They tell you what’s good for you, and mainly what’s not.
How much to drink, what not to inhale.
What not to ask, and whom not to tell.
Whom to adore, and what to admire.
What to abhore, and what to desire.
When you should laugh, and when be irate.
Whom you should love, and what you must hate.
They tell you what’s right. They tell you who’s wrong,
and you have to listen, and just play along.
