Même s'ils arborent des sourires radieux, ils chantent leur solitude, la peine d'être délaissés par leurs enfants, le manque d'attention dont ils souffrent :
Your working days are too many, you hardly ever come home
At the other end of the phone, you're always busy with no end in sight
Busy with no end
Busy, busy, busy without end.
Your old folks pass their days learning and finding ways to amuse themselves
Cut back on the little details, but HOLD on to those grand occasions
Have to HOLD on,
Hold, hold, hold, have to HOLD on.
Beloved son, watch the singing on TV
Your father and mother didn't make any mistakes, did they?
Tonight, HOLD on as you see Mum & Dad within a second GO GAGA!
If you're satisfied, please stand up and applaud
Don't make us too nervous
If you're happy, sing along with us
Give us our moment on stage (?)
