Bridge the Generation Gap

 Father:

I just want to be trendy and cool

and talk to you like your friends at school

Son:

It makes me cringe and I wish you'd stop

Father:

Well,  I've even started listening to pop.

Last week I bought a CD of Mika's

And look at my new hip and happenin' sneakers.

Son:

They're trainers, Dad, and you got them from Woolie's

If you show those at school, I'll be picked on by bullies.

Just act your age, and buy a cardigan,

Listen to Elvis and do some gardening!

Father:

Hey!  I'm thirty-nine, not seventy-two

So that's more than enough cheek from you

Don't you have homework?  Away you go,

I'm off to play some Status Quo...

The End
