Lyrics

"They Knew Better" by Stephanie Madsen and Chuck Davies

Going on a family trip, only nine years old
Mom and Dad said to dress up warm so you don’t get a cold
Didn’t wanna listen, left my coat and gloves
Then down came the snow falling from above
I should have taken their advice, I didn't have a clue
Now I know their words were true

I thought I was right, and they were always wrong
When all they did was try to keep me safe from harm
I didn’t wanna be under their umbrella
When they'd predict the weather
I thought I knew what was best
But they knew better

First job at sixteen, spending all my pay
Mom and Dad said to save a bit for a rainy day
Didn't wanna listen, the money came and went
Then when my car broke down, I was left without a cent
I had to learn the hard way, I didn't have a clue
Now I know their words were true

I thought I was right, and they were always wrong
When all they did was try to keep me safe from harm
I didn’t wanna be under their umbrella
When they'd predict the weather
I thought I knew what was best
But they knew better

Now that I’m in their shoes, with my own family
Sometimes my kids don’t listen much to me
But I have understood, since the day that they were born
That no matter what, I’ll always try to save them from the storm

I thought I was right, and they were always wrong
When all they did was try to keep me safe from harm
I didn’t wanna be under their umbrella
When they'd predict the weather

I thought I was right, and they were always wrong
But all they sacrificed, kept me safe from harm
So I keep my family under my umbrella
Cause sometimes there’s bad weather
They taught me what was best
They taught me what was best
Now I know better
