"It doesn't help matters when prime time TV has Murphy Brown. I know it's not fashionable to talk about moral values, but we need to do it..." It started on a Labor Day A chance for us to get away Everyone in the house And year by year things moved around But everybody still got down in the house And seldom do we have a plan But everybody lends a hand Everyone in the house Making sure we have our fun While gettin' done what must be done in the house Pardon me, did you say something? What are you looking at? Tell me, what's your problem? Are you counting heads? Are you counting things? What are you looking for? Listen there's no problem 'Cause we got them, we already got them We got family values "Some people say Judeo-Christian values are code words. Well they are code words. Code words for..." Politics and money scams Endless verbal traffic jams Keep it out of the house 'Cause you'll get what you give to me A little r-e-s-p-e-c-t in the house 'Cause you know some of us have been around And some of us still get around But we all in the house So don't get on our evil side 'Cause we like it rough and we're nationwide Pardon me, did you say something? We're all entitled to have our own opinion And you're standing there like you smelled something But you're entitled to even bad opinions "Many of our generation glamorize casual sex and drug use, evaded responsibility, and trashed authority." We gonna have a good time everybody Because the family is all in the house! "Our policy must be premised on, it must reinforce values such as family, hard work, integrity, personal responsibility..." Made him love mom Saw what that did to him Made him love dad Saw what that did to him Made him love god Saw what that did to him Made him love death Saw what that did to him "I know it's not fashionable to talk about moral values..." Shut up!
