Song Description

young girl speaking cynicaly about her life under her mothers care. Discovering that the cliche's and warnings were often founded in untruth, that her mothers efforts to provide the perfect world were often stiffling and misguided resulting in the young girl wanting to pull away more than ever. Hence, welcome tomy perfect world where my mother will make sure nothing can harm her little girl and i don't get to experience anything on my own

Story Behind the Song

no story. I needed a subject to write about and this was what it turned out to be.

Lyrics

you gotta be good
you gotta be right my momma said
you gotta be nice
you gotta do like a good girl should
and you make shure to wear your sweater
cause it's cold outside
and you better take your umbrella
cause the rain will come tonight
you gotta be smart
you gotta do well my momma said
you gotta be sharp
and press all the wrinkles from your dress
and if the boys all look the other way
they're not worth it anyway
your personality will shine through
it gets 'em every time

so I welcome you to my crystal palace
the weather's fine here all year through
ya I welcome you to my crystal palace
nothing ever goes wrong in here

you gotta fit in
can't you be like your sister Beth
you gotta come down
your gonna be my early death
and you must never talk to strangers
cause you never know where they've been
and never open fancy letters
cause the rain will come
you gotta be smooth
make 'em wait my momma said
never give in
always be fashionably late
but I don't get to choose the day
or the time or the place
every time I try I stumble
and get egg on my face

So I welcome you to my crystal palace
the weather's fine here all year through
Ya I welcome you to my crystal palace
nothing ever goes wrong in here
