mom knows best.

Story Behind the Song

Why I put my kid in alternative school; a true story except the ending, which hasn't happened yet.


A Non-Conformist

When Ty was in the first grade, his teacher called his mother
she said; mam, I hate to tell you..but you?re kid?s not like the others
when they?re out playin? baseball, he?s off swingin? on a swing
in my expert opinion, it?s just not a natural thing?he never

Goes with the flow or sticks to the plan
seems we?ve got a non-conformist on our hands
He just won?t do what they do or say what they say
your child?s givin? me a headache mam, ?n I just can?t work this way
No, I just can?t work this way

When Ty was in the second grade, his ma got another call
This teacher kept ?a harpin?: he?s not fittin? in at all
the other kids, they like him, but he doesn?t seem to care
His head is in the clouds mam, ?n I don?t like it there? he never

Well, he?d made it to the third grade when the phone it rang again
This teacher really liked Ty, she said; he?s got so many friends ?n with that
great imagination, he?s a stand out in the crowd
guess that?s why the other kids all follow him around
I know he?ll go far, chances are, he?ll be president some day
he?s gonna be president some day

Well, there?s a moral to this story, let me tell you how it goes
Teachers have opinions but only mama knows
Ty?s ma never worried, she said; you just be yourself
A special little person unlike anybody else?he never

went with the flow or stuck to the plan
?n he grew to be a non-conformist kind of man
Who still won?t do what is done or say what is said
But now the New York Times, they?re quotin? him instead
Now the New York Times, they?re quotin? him instead

Oh yeah
