The Lyrics

Father find out his kid wants to do ballet and is a little pissed to say the least...
So what is the meaning? It's rude and it's gross
He kicks up his heels, with the music he flows
Don't tell me he's starring in Swan Lake
Or tell me his passion isn't fake
Coz I don't want him carryin' on

They stand in a line and they're striking a pose
It's taken a while just to get in the clothes
I'm sorry but this is out of line
I don't have the money nor the time
And I don't need him carryin' on

Coz he's taking ballet
His mother does frown
He wears a tight suit and he prances around
I said he can't go
He's wasting my time
The rules have been signed but he just don't abide
Two lessons a day?
It must be a lie!
"You're coming back home and you'd better not whine"
It's been a bad day
He's been to ballet

Why can't be play tennis or croquet?
The kids would just laugh at him say
"Can't even get his garments on!"

it's no more ballet
I've put my foot down
He'll do his school-work and deliver his 'rounds
His mother said no
I'm not telling lies
He puts on a face, though it kills him inside
He's missing ballet
We really don't mind
He's wearing a frown and we're "being unkind"
He's missing ballet
(Oh... happy days)

Sometimes he'll listen to Ashton or Bate and the whole thing seems so wrong
Why can't he be like the others his age and make an effort to belong
It can't go wrong

We're showing compassion
When he needs it the most
Oh him and I
I'm breaking the rules but i'm letting him go...

Now he's back in ballet
Performing in town
It's a pretty sad sight but i'm really quite proud
His mother don't know
I have to tell lies
She's working 'til 5, so she's out of our minds
He's doing ballet
He seems to apply
The crowd shout and squeal "One more time"
Suppose it's okay
For him to ballet

Doing ballet!

Doing ballet!

Doing ballet!

I'm surprised that people don't know the original. It spent around 6 months in the top 20 here last year, and it's still getting loads and loads of airplay. Still, thank you for looking, Tristessa

I Do KTOS and I think this is great! I hate ballet!!! I also despise opera... What's Next Operatic Drills to Weezer's Beverly Hills... actually I think that might have promise.... But anyway I love the song Bad Day, and been thinking of doing something to this song... This is perfect! 5-5-5

I think I might've heard the original before, if it's the one I'm thinking about. Funny parody.
