Surrender

Lyrics

Mother told me, yes, she told me I'd meet girls like you
She also told me, "Stay away, you'll never know what you'll catch"
Just the other day I heard a soldier falling off
Some Indonesian junk that's going round

I saw these guys the other night and let me tell you they still can rock hard. Awesome concert in Michigan....
This was the song in 7th grade for me. Now my 12 year old daughter jumps around the house to it. A great song that is still totally cool.
I love this song it's so funny.It was That 70's Show theme song.That was pretty funny too.

Rick you are truly a classic song writer and we're all better for it!
First time I herd this song was on guitar hero and I fell in love
Have loved Cheap Trick since I was six years old. Robin Zander still looks great.
Detroit Rock Cityyyyyyy!
got my kiss records out!
Thank you conan obrien
So perfect!
Love this song! Saw them in concert with Stone Temple Pilots, dang good show!
Mommy's alright, daddy's kind of a dick though....
I get to go see these guys in like 4 weeks at the county far in Oregon!!!
Never listened closely to the lyrics. Much deeper song than I thought, even if it's about the clap or whatever.
I don't really comment on things but I have to on this song cause its that good

This song is awesome!
:) One of my favorite songs ever!
Good song
when they do this song live and they come to the line got my kiss records out Rick throughs a Love Gun record in the crowd!
ahhh...the good Cheaptrick.

Fantastic rock song...right up there with the best of them
Great song, believe it's about the clap though.
The live version is DEFINITELY better.

I love this song. Got it at a radio station-spon s o r e d movie one Sat. afternoon in 1979. It was a 45RPM with Surrender on both sides and I raced home to spin it. Been a fan ever since. . .
