[Verse 1]
You can take me to the prom
Promise not to tell your mom
Mama never tells you why
While she kicks you in the eye
I don't think she understands
I just wanna hold your hand
I don't even own a car
So couldn't get that far

[Verse 2]
Father Markus said to me,
"Just confess and you'll be free.
Sit you down upon my lap
Tell me your sins, just like that"
He said "Baby, know the rules
You're living in a Catholic school.
All the teachers say you're fine,
But they don't have dirty minds"

[Chorus]
(Aaah) I am only in my teens
I live only for my dreams
(Aaah) I cannot be made to stay
Life's a journey anyway

Life's a journey anyway
Hey!

[Bridge]
Teacher, teacher, please make me well
I don't want to go to hell
Teacher, teacher, what can I do?
I don't know boy, it's up to you

(Oooh) It's time to free your mind
It's time to cleanse your soul (Oooh)
x2

Yo, father, forgive me for I have sinned
I'd rather talk to God but he's out and you're in
It's a little complicated but father don't sweat it
You can hear me out or you can just forget it

Now, I haven't been to church in about ten years
And one time I had to pull my little sister's ears
But I'm not really violent and it shows
I go for flower power as that stupid song goes

Sometimes I tell a lie, but only when it's true
And I often say things like "shit" and "fuck you"
And I like to read a lot of dirty comic books
And I've given dirty teachers a lot of dirty looks

But this is the last thing that I'm ever gonna say
It's embarrassing for me to talk to you this way
But before I forget, before I carry on
I stole a table napkin from a fancy restaurant

Now please, father, tell me, tell me, what I gotta do
I am full of guilt and now it's up to you
Now please, father, tell me, tell me, what I gotta do
I am full of guilt and now it's up to you (Hey!)

Just say 10 Hail Mary's
21 Glory Be's
13 Our Father's
And a hundred Amen's
(Amen, Amen, Amen, ...)

[Verse 1]
You can take me to the prom
Promise not to tell your mom
Mama never tells you why
While she kicks you in the eye
I don't think she understands
I just wanna hold your hand
I don't even own a car
so we couldn't get that far

[Chorus]
(Aaah) I am only in my teens
I live only for my dreams
(Aaah) I cannot be made to stay
Life's a journey anyway
x2

Life's a journey anyway - hey!
