Description

We are the people our parents warned us about.
Complete lyrics at the end of this post.

REAL WOOD
REAL PAINT
HAND PAINTED (using stencils)

-Background color: Rust (?) Not really sure what to call this color.
- Letter color: Cream

-Rough size: 7 1/4" x 12
-Material: Wood (pine)

The sign looks great hanging on the wall or sitting on a shelf.

Sign comes with a saw tooth hanger on the back for hanging.

My rustic signs will intentionally have "flaws". This means cracks, scrapes, chips and the paint will look worn. Some of this will be natural some I may create but I am definitely not hiding the beautiful marks of life.

"We Are The People Our Parents Warned Us About"
Jimmy Buffett

I was supposed to have been a Jesuit priest or a Naval Academy grad
That was the way that my parents perceived me
Those were the plans that they had
Though I couldn't fit the part too dumb or too smart
Ain't it funny how we all turned out
I guess we are the people our parents warned us about

You know I could have worked the rigs when the money was big
Or hopped a freighter south to Trinidad
And when they tried to draft me I earned a college degree
Buyin' time till things were not so bad
But when I got a guitar found a job in a bar, playin' acid rock til I was numb
Tell me where are the flashbacks they all warned us would come.

We are the people they couldn't figure out
We are the people our parents warned us about

Hey hey, Gardner McKay, take us on the leaky Tiki with you
Clear skies bound for Shanghai, sailin' on the ocean blue

Now I got quarters in my loafers tryin' to fight inflation
When it only used to take a cent
Sometimes I wish I was back in my crashpad days before I knew what cash flow meant

Seems everybody's joggin' or heavy into health shit
Don't tell me that I ought to get rolffed

'Cause I love cajun martinis and playin' afternoon golf

We are the people there isn't any doubt
We are the people they still can't figure out
We are the people who love to sing "Twist and Shout"
(Shake it up, Baby now)
We are the people our parents warned us about.
We are the people our parents warned us about.

I was looking for something Bob Seger, and saw many things I almost bought. So glad I held out for this. It is everything I was looking for and I couldn't be more pleased. Would definitely buy from Bugs House Creations again.

Absolutely LOVED this. It is one of my favorite songs of all time, and the picture doesn't do it justice. And it was delivered in a timely manner. I would definitely by from this seller again!

Returns & exchanges

I am sorry, but we cannot accept returns and cancellations or offer exchanges at this time.

With that being said we want to make every situation work.

We want you to be extremely pleased with your purchase. If there is a problem with your order, please contact me, before leaving negative feedback and I am sure we can figure something out.

In case of a refund, due to a faulty/damaged product, I will refund you the price of the purchased product, or provide a replacement (at your choice). The shipping fee is non-refundable.

Shipping policies

We ship using the United States Postal Service mostly but could do something different upon request. Larger items like wooden boxes, will go Parcel Post to save our customers some shipping costs.

SHIPPING PRICES ARE ESTIMATED FROM COAST TO COAST (US). We don't ship outside of the US and please contact us about shipping to Alaska or Hawaii, additional costs will likely apply.

We will refund for shipping if our estimate is more than a couple of dollars more than the actual cost to ship your item(s). Location makes can make a big difference.

Figuring out a price for shipping our items seems to be quite a challenge. Combining shipping can be a good way to save some money but some of our items don't ship well with other items.
For instance, our larger wire trees have to ship by themselves (they can't be touching anything inside the box and are actually screwed to the box). Wine charms can be shipped with about anything but more than two sets (by themselves) puts them over the "First Class" weight and the price jumps quite a bit.

Just remember - we are definitely not trying to make any money on shipping. If you would like an exact quote on shipping particular items to your address please convo us and we would be happy to provide that information.
