For the Parents

Prom is for the parents
Nothing less, nothing more
It seems to me quite apparent 
As they drag me to the store.
Sure, girls all have fun
As they shop in search for the perfect dress
But until that is done
It seems to me they're only filled with stress
Prom is for the parents
I have to say
But when it's time to make a purchase
It is we who are left to pay
The tickets cost an arm and a leg 
And the clothes our hands and feet
Before this is over we'll have to beg
And will wake up the next day on the street.
Prom is for the parents
They just love to take our picture
It would come as no surprise
If they went as far as to get a fixture.
But then comes that time
We've been waiting for all year
The night I call you mine
And get to hold you so near.
And although I don't know how
For you I'll give it a chance
When better to learn than now
Yes, I think I'll like to dance.
So prom is for the parents
If only at the start
But if I get to hold you close
Then Prom is for the Heart
