Chorus:

F    F/E   G7       C    C/B     Am
Hey,       pop, can I go ride my zoom?
        F           G
It goes two hundred miles an hour, 
C        C/B    Am
Suspended on balloons
    F           G               C         C/B   Am
And can I put a droplet of this new stuff on my tongue?
    Dm                                 D7
And imagine frothing dragons while you sit and wreck your lungs?
    C            C/B
And I must be permissive,
     Am              Am/G
Understanding of the younger generation

And then I'll know that all I've learned
   Dm7
My kid assumes
    G7
And all my deepest worries
        Cmaj7
Must be his cartoons,
    Cmaj7
And still I'll try to tell him
        Dm7 
All the things I've done
G7
Relating to what he can do
     Cmaj7
When he becomes a man
    Dm7                     G7             C   F   C
And still, he'll stick his fingers in the fan.

      F   F/E   G7      C            C/B  Am
And hey,        pop, my girlfriend's only three,
              F        G
She's got her own videophone,
          C     C/B  Am
And she's taking LSD
    F                   G
And now that we're best friends,
             C      C/B    Am
She wants to give a bit to me
    Dm
But what's the matter, daddy,
D7
How come you're turning green?
       F       F/E       F/D     F/C     G7
Can it be that you can't live up to your dreams?
