I actually very much dislike the explicit version, but do enjoy the "clean" version. Still a few things I could without. But, overall - a ton better.

So they recorded 2 versions, or the beep out all the bad stuff? That would be a lot of beeping

Me too, all I can say is "wow". Would never have let my kids listen to that stuff.

But, that's me. Each to his own.

There are 2 very different versions. Strangely, even in the "clean" version - they have bleeped out a few words; I guess to maintain some of the song.

Again...

1) to each his own.

2) the "clean" version is almost a whole different song.

As I said - I find the explicit one unbearable. I wouldn't let my kid listen to it (heck, I wouldn't even link to it). But, listening to the "clean" version is acceptable to me.

The kids asked me about it, and I did my best to explain that the original lyrics were not to my liking. Rather than trying to control everything that my kids see or hear, I try to teach them why its bad to use words like that.

My kids seem to get it, and they are the first to speak up when they hear anyone else swearing. They also speak out frequently against drinking, smoking, and junk food. All I can really hope to do is educate them and trust that they will apply good judgement when we are not around.

Cheers,

Dave

Right on Dave!!

I try my best to police what my kids hear or listen to but there are a lot of situations out of our (the parents) control. School dances seem to be my worst enemy, go figure. I have however raised my kids to use their better judgment and for the most part it works. When their judgment fails I make sure I remind them of what's appropriate and explain the why's and why nots to best of my ability.

Ependydad,

My kids listen to the local pop station also. They know the words t some songs that I am hearing for the first time and I listen to the station all the time!!! They are going to hear it sooner than later.

I would rather be in the know and help them understand when they ask questions just as the person that started this thread than them try to hide it. My kids are 9 and 6 and can also sing 1960, 1970, etc... word for word. Some of the lyrics are questionable also.


"I'm going to go pop some tabs...."
