Parents Say The Darndest Things!

Parents--how adorable. Whether they're obsessed with their iProduct du jour or try to chat you up about the latest episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, you can't help but appreciate how they still try to stay involved in your life. Still, few parents keep up with the ever-evolving musical landscape. With that in mind we decided to email our parents sample lyrics from recently popular songs just to see if they could figure out what was going on. Their unadulterated responses below.

Ke$ha - "Tik Tok"
And now the dudes are linin' up cuz they hear we got swagger
But we kick 'em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger
I'm talkin' about errrbody gettin crunk
Boys tryn'a touch my junk


"This is about some girls thinking they're hot, checking out the boys who aren't and dissing the pretenders who are offenders."

"Is swagger a new drink? Why does she have it on her and why is she with Mick Jagger? She has garbage that people want?"

"The guys are in a competition like American Idol, wanting to show off their stuff, but they won't be accepted unless they're a certain 'type' - a cookie cutter imitation of what is acceptable. They're all showing off, doing their best."

"Guys are standing in front of a hot club in NYC because they hear celebs and models are hanging out there. But the girls want nothing to do with 'em unless they're jocks or loaded with dough. The chicks are there to party, boys want some action."
