Mxpx - family affair???
I've heard this song and 2 lyrics websites say its by mxpx but I've searched on Limewire and I just can't find the darned thing! Does the song even exist or is it by another band?? Its an awesome song, really! The lyrics are below:



Finally met her parents on a Saturday night
they gave me the EYE wouldn't let me out of their sight
they didn't like the looks of me right away
they told me to go,
so I decided to stay

eyes were brown
and my hair was blue
of course they had a problem with my tattoos
I can't please everybody all the time
so right now all I wanted to was make you mine

your parents hate, the way I dress
your parents say my life is a mess
your parents hate what they don't understand
All I want to do tonight is be your man

Her dad asked what I did
I said I play in a band
He said he hated devil music and he wasn't a fan
Musicians can't be trusted and your job is a joke
I don't want my daughter spending her life broke
After that I didn't really know what to say
so I said I think I'll date your daughter anyway

I can't please everybody all the time
so right now all I wanted to was make you mine

your parents hate, the way I dress
your parents say my life is a mess
your parents hate what they don't understand
All I want to do tonight is be your man

I had to go drop the kids off at the pool
causes lately I've been having problems with my stool
Came down the stairs, that's when I tripped and fell
felt like I was on my way straight to hell

Now I think is time to make my way to the door
But for sure tomorrow night, that I'll be back for more

I can't please everybody all the time
so right now all I wanted to was make you mine

Your dad can't stand me
and your mom's in shock
your brother wants to kill me
and your sister won't talk
the whole dinner table talking about my hair
But I don't really care
It's just a family affair

your parents hate, the way I dress
your parents say my life is a mess
your parents hate what they don't understand
All I want to do tonight is be your man

Mxpx - family affair???
CD: Before Everything And After {Japanese Import}


This is an Enhanced CD, which contains both regular audio tracks and multimedia computer files. MxPx: Mike Herrera (vocals, acoustic & electric guitars, piano, synthesizer, bass); Tom Wisniewski (acoustic & electric guitars); Yuri Ruley (drums, percussion). Additional personnel includes: The Halo Friendlies, Benji Madden, Kris Roe, Jordan Pundik. Recorded at El Dorado Studios, Burbank, California. A lot is made of MxPx's Christian beliefs and lyrical themes, but one listen to BEFORE EVERYTHING & AFTER reveals a band whose positive outlook differs little from legendary NYC hardcore straight-edge combos like Youth of Today and Gorilla Biscuits in practice. In addition, the group performs with a relaxed confidence and professionalism unmatched by few rock bands of any religious inclination. Though the album cover shows the group members sporting more tattoos than a ship full of drunken sailors just back from leave, the music contained on the disc is all good-time mosh-pit fun. Not content to rest on its laurels, however, the band branches out into emo territory, with several songs ("Quit Your Life," "On the Outs") reveling in personal and romantic subject matter that's definitely more adult than one would expect from a band most often associated with skateboarding junior high schoolers

Japanese edition of the Christian punk act's 2003 album features 17 tracks including 1 bonus track, 'Family Affair'. A&M.
