lyrics

Verse 1:
Jason just holes out in his room
He listens to music that embraces his gloom
He tries to be proud by playing it too loud
All across the house it booms

His dad comes home from where he's employed
The noise makes him become annoyed
He knocks on the door but he is ignored
His frustration is deployed

Chorus:
Can you please have some respect?
Or did you just forget
That you'll live here til your grown?

Jason says shut up dad
Stop getting so mad
And just leave me alone

Verse 2:
Jason gets back from another day at school
He's spent so much time trying to be cool
But all of his grades have seen better days
Now he's come across as a fool

His dad says he should pay attention much more
Listen to the teacher and don't get so bored
Jason, do well so that you can excel
Please study, like you did before

Chorus:
Can you please have some respect?
Or did you just forget
You can do well all on your own?

Jason says shut up dad
Stop getting so mad
And just leave me alone

Bridge:
Jason's called to the office one day during class
They tell him that he should sit down
His dad had been driving a little too fast
Lost control, drove into a lake, and drowned

Chorus:
Why didn't I have some respect?
I'll never forget
The way I let you down

I'm sorry for putting you through
All those things that did hurt you
But now I'm left alone
