Surrender Lyrics

Artist: Cheap Trick
Album: Heaven Tonight

Words and Music by Rick Nielsen

Mother told me, yes, she told me I'd meet girls like you.
She also told me, "Stay away, you'll never know what you'll catch."
Just the other day I heard a soldier falling off some Indonesian junk that's going round.

Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Father says, "Your mother's right, she's really up on things."
"Before we married, Mommy served in the WACS in the Philippines."
Now, I had heard the WACS recruited old maids for the war.
But mommy isn't one of those, I've known her all these years.

Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.

Whatever happened to all this season's losers of the year?
Ev'ry time I got to thinking, where'd they disappear?
When I woke up, Mom and Dad are rolling on the couch.
Rolling numbers, rock and rolling, got my Kiss records out.

Mommy's alright, Daddy's alright, they just seem a little weird.
Surrender, surrender, but don't give yourself away, ay, ay, ay.


Repeat Chorus 7X

by April Garfield on 6/6/2009 3:23pm
"Surrender" Sounds great as the background music to Conan O'Brien's skit on 6-1-09 on his first night as host of the Tonight Show. This was the background music to Conan running across the country from New York to L.A. to make it on time to host his first Tonight show when he took over for Jay Leno.

by Bob on 10/15/2010 7:26am
Heard this song the first time in 1977. Cheap Trick (who?) opened for Boston in the Seattle Center Arena. We never heard of them but they rocked and this song was so catchy we were singing it at the top of our lungs all the way home from the show. (Boston who?)
by Lombardi on 1/7/2011 12:16pm
This guys are way on from their 70's...they rip!!!!
by Karl on 1/14/2011 3:17pm
Great opening, catchy lyrics. However I think I prefer "Dream Police" as the definitive Cheap Trick song.
by ely on 1/20/2011 8:36am

by bcs774 Boston on 4/25/2011 12:55pm
Alwalys reminds me of Fastimes/Ridgemont High Demone singing it when trying to sell tix to the concert "your mommys alright your daddys alright" Then Stacy tells him shes prego LOL
by Frank on 5/5/2011 9:12am
Excellent song and very strange lyrics
by Paul on 5/10/2011 7:32am
The lyrics were changed a long time ago for political correctness. The original lyric was "...the WACS recruited old maids, dykes and whores. Mommy's neither one of those...". You can still hear Robin sing "neither" in some recordings, even though it is not grammatically correct with the new lyric.
by Clark on 9/30/2011 9:21am
NIce but the guitar hero version is better
by Mark on 11/2/2011 6:01pm
Hey Paul: I always thought there was something odd about the word "neither" in that line. It makes sense when you consider the original lyrics. Thanks for the trivia!
by margarita on 2/5/2012 11:55am
LOve dis song!!!All the way!!!
by Liliana on 4/2/2012 1:27am
Love this song! hey! there's word : Indonesian! i'm indonesian :P
by Jenna on 5/4/2012 10:09am
I am ten and I always played this on Guitar Hero and i always called it Mommy's alright Daddy's alright.
by Jacey on 5/23/2012 1:14am
@Right: "mommy isn't one of those, I've known her all these years. That's wrong. it's mommy isnt neither of those."

I've always had a special hatred in my heart for those who feel the need to correct others' grammar, but it doth make me so happy when in so doing they prove that they know nothing about grammar.
by tesy on 6/27/2012 8:34am
by Defry on 8/26/2012 8:35am

It's a disease!
by Laughing on 11/7/2012 6:48pm
Defry, they aren't calling Indonesian's bad.... Junk is slang in America. Indonesia is where that junk came from.

Saw them at a concert, and I don't think you can get any better then you and 100,000+ people chanting "WE'RE ALL ALRIGHT!" at the same time during this song
