  • Song Lyrics:
    (Things get a little easier, once you understand)
    [repeated in background over and over and over until the end of the song]

    [spoken dialog]
    [Dad]
    I'll be expecting you to get a haircut by Friday
    [Boy]
    Forget it dad, that won't change anything
    [Dad]
    Forget, nothing, you'll do as I say as long as you are living in my house.

    [Mom]
    He knows I'm not feeling well
    And yet he doesn't take out one second out to help his mother
    His only concern is for himself
    [Boy]
    Come on Ma, what do you want from me?
    [Dad]
    Don't argue with your mother, just shut up and listen

    [Girl]
    But mom, all my friends will be there
    [Mom]
    I said no, you can't go
    [Girl]
    But why
    [Mom]
    I don't want you in that neighborhood
    [Girl]
    Why, what's wrong with that neighborhood
    [Mom]
    I don't like the kind of people living there
    [Girl]
    What's wrong with them
    [Mom]
    Never mind, some day you will thank me

    [Mom]
    Are you sure nobody kept you company tonight while you were baby sitting
    [Girl]
    What's that supposed to mean
    [Mom]
    Just curious
    [Girl]
    Admit it mom, you don't trust me

    [Mom]
    Where are you going now
    [Son]
    To my friend's house
    [Mom]
    Don't you have things to do in the house?
    Don't you have homework
    Why don't you sit down and read a book?
    [Son]
    Oh ma
    [Mom]
    Don't 'oh ma' me
    You're wasting your life away with foolish things
    [Son]
    What are you talking about?
    How about your bridge club and your ladies groups
    and your parties and your daytime programs
    How about all that
    [Mom]
    That's different

    [Girl]
    Ma, I'll be home at 11
    [Mom]
    You better be home at 10 or don't bother to come home at all

    [Dad]
    When I was your age, I was working 12 hours a day
    6 days a week helping to pay for the food and the rent
    [Son]
    I don't understand, what's that got to do with me
    [Dad]
    If you can't figure that out for yourself, you're stupid

    [Boy]
    Hey dad, did you see my new guitar, I joined a group
    [Dad]
    Son, there's a little more to life than joining a group and playing a guitar
    [Boy]
    Yeah dad, what is there to life (life, life)

    [Music and background singing stop]
    [Police officer]
    Mr Cook,
    [Dad]
    Yes
    [Police officer]
    Do you have a son named Robin, Robin Cook age 17
    [Dad]
    Yes
    [Police officer]
    I'm sorry Mr Cook, you better come down to the station house
    Your son is dead
    [Dad]
    Dead? How?
    [Police officer]
    He died of a overdose
    [Dad]
    Oh my god...
    [crying]

    [music starts again and single voice sings 'things get a little easier once you understand']
