Perfectly All Right

I never listened to my mother
When she'd tell me what to do
I never listened to my father
He tried to tell me those things too
I never listened to the policeman
And I would stay out every night
Well, look at me now
I'm perfectly all right

Chorus
I'm perfectly all right
I'm perfectly all right
I'm perfectly all right
I'm all right

I've got an excellent education
I ain't no superstitious child
I'm living in the age of reason
Don't drag me to your monkey trial
I may not go to church on Sunday
And I may never see the light
But don't pray for me, Argentina
I'm perfectly all right

Chorus

You wish that I was introspective
And I'd read poetry to you
You wish that I'd do the kind of things
That the boys on the soap operas do
But it's too late for me change now
How I wish we wouldn't fight
I may not be perfect
But I'm perfectly all right

Chorus

I'm perfectly all right
