Hard to Explain
by The Strokes

Was an honest man
Asked me for the phone
Try to take control
Oh I don't see it that way
I don't see it that way

We shared some ideas
All obsessed with fame
Says we're all the same
Oh I don't see it that way
I don't see it that way

Raised in Carolina
I'm not like that
Tryin' to remind her
When we go back

I missed the last bus
I'll take the next train
I try, but you see

It's hard to explain
I said the right things
But act the wrong way
I like it right here

But I cannot stay
I watched the TV
Forget what I'm told
Well I am too young

And they are too old
The joke is on you
This place is a zoo
You're right, it's true

He said he can't decide
I shake my head to say
Everything's just great
Oh I just can't remember
I just can't remember

Raised in Carolina (she says)
I'm not like that
Trying to remind her
When we go back

I say the right things
But act the wrong way
I like it right here
But I cannot stay

I watched the TV
Forget what I'm told
I am too young
And they are too old

I'll make it you see
I'm ever so pleased
Pretend to be nice
So I can be mean

I missed the last bus
I'll take the next train
I try, but you see
It's hard to explain

I’m a 52 year old mother and I’m disappointed my sons aren’t into The Strokes.

Charlotte Milne Seriously? Develop a sense of humour. They make their own choices musically. It was a joke.

Seriously? Let them be themselves

Sorry to have to tell you this, but you have wiener kids.
