Sister, say a prayer for us
One we learned from nuns and such
I won't believe, not a word you speak
Just make it sweet to hear

Let's pour wine in coffee cups
And drive around the neighborhood
And shine the headlights on houses
Until all the news is good

Oh no! What would your mother say?
Oh no! What would you father do?
Oh no! What would the neighbors think?
Oh no!

How am I supposed to sleep?
Roaming blackouts on the street
Oh, not a word, not another speech
We'll run the headlights down

These kids are foaming at the mouth
Psychotropic capricorns
Tomorrow's some kind of strangerland
Where all the news is good

Oh no! What would your mother say?
Oh no! What would your father do?
Oh no! What would the neighbors think?
Oh no! If they only knew

How can Monday be alright
Then on Tuesday, lose my mind?
Tomorrow's some kind of stranger
Who I'm not supposed to see

Oh no! What would your mother say?
Oh no! What would your father do?
Oh no! What would the neighbors think?
Oh no! If they only knew, knew
