The Parent Trap (song)

Lyrics Edit

Tommy:

If their love's on skids

Treat your folks like kids

Or your family tree's gonna snap

Annette:

So to make 'em dig

First, you gotta rig

Tommy:

Whatta ya gotta rig?

Annette:

The parent trap!

Tommy:

Uh-huh

Annette:

If they loose that zing

And they just won't swing

Then the problem falls in your lap

Tommy:

When your folks are square 

Then you must prepare

Annette:

Whatta ya gotta prepare?

Tommy:

The parent trap!

Both:

To set the bait 

Recreate the date

The first time Cupid shot 'em

Get 'em under the moon

Play their favorite tune

Annette:

John!

Tommy:

Marsha!

Both:

Ya got 'em!

Tommy:

You lead 'em back to love 

With the velvet glove

Annette:

'Cause they're much too old for the strap

Both:

Straighten up their mess

With togetherness

Togetherness!

The parent trap!

Annette:

John, they're playing our song!

Tommy:

I know it!

Tommy:

Ooh, Marsha, what fools we've been!

Both:

Love's on skids

Treat 'em like kids

Loose that zing

And make 'em swing

Love's a mess

Togetherness

Bless our happy home!

Lead 'em back to love

With a velvet glove

'Cause they're much too old for the strap

Straighten up their mess

With togetherness

Togetherness!

The parent trap!
