"Surrender" is a song by American pop rock band Cheap Trick. It was mentioned in the Season Eleven episode, "Guitar Queer-O".

Background

Stan Marsh and Kyle Broflovski play this song on Guitar Hero, after Eric Cartman ridicules Randy Marsh for playing a real guitar. Craig Tucker tells Randy he would rather see Stan and Kyle play the game instead.

Later, Thad Jarvis and Stan are practicing and cannot decide on a song to play. Stan wants to play "Surrender", but Thad calls the song 'bubblegum crap'. This causes an argument prompting Thad to quit the Guitar Hero group.

Lyrics

Mother told me, yes, she told me
That 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
Of a soldier's falling off
Some Indonesian junk
That's going round

Mommy's all right
Daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender
Surrender
But don't give yourself away
Hey, heeeeeey

Father says, "Your mother's right
She's really up on things
Before we married, Mommy served
In the WACS in the Philippines"
Now, I had heard the WACS recruited
Old maids for the war
But mommy isn't one of those
I've known her all these years

Mommy's all right
Daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender
Surrender
But don't give yourself away
Hey, heeeeeey

Whatever happened to all this season's
Losers of the year?
Every time I got to thinking
Where'd they disappear?
But when I woke up, Mom and Dad
Are rolling on the couch
Rolling numbers, rock and rollin'
Got my KISS records out

Mommy's all right
Daddy's all right
They just seem a little weird
Surrender
Surrender
But don't give yourself away
Hey, heeeeeey

Away
Away

Surrender
Surrender
But don't give yourself away
Surrender
Surrender
But don't give yourself away
