     B5                    F#5                   E5                         B5

    Mother told me, yes, she told me I'd meet girls like you

          B5                    F#5                   E5                              B5
    She also told me, "Stay away, you'll never know what you'll catch"

     E5                  F#5              B5 (2)
    Just the other day I heard a soldier falling off

            E5               F#5                   B5 (2)

    some Indonesian junk that's going round

    Chorus:

      B5                      G#5                       F#5                     E5
    Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird

          B5            G#5           F#5                        E5 (4)
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away

     

    / A5/B - - - / - - - - / B5 - - - / - - - - / x2

     

    B5                         F#5                         E5                 B5
    Father says, "Your mother's right, she's really up on things"

            B5                    F#5                          E5                      B5
    "Before we married, Mommy served in the WACS in the Philippines"

            E5                       F#5               B5 (2)
    Now, I had heard the WACS recruited old maids for the war

            E5               F#5                       B5 (2)
    But mommy isn't one of those, I've known her all these years

    Chorus

           C5                   G5                        F5                C5
    Whatever happened to all this season's losers of the year?

    C5               G5                        F5                     C5
    Ev'ry time I got to thinking, where'd they disappear?

    F5                       G5                       C5 (2)
    When I woke up, Mom and Dad are rolling on the couch

    F5                       G5                          C5 (2)
    Rolling numbers, rock and rolling, got my Kiss records out

    Chorus 2:
      C5                      A5                           G5                       F5
    Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird

          C5             A5             G5                          F5 (4)
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away

    Away                    x2

     

          C5            A5             G5                           F5
    Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away     x12

     

    End on C5
