Am I turning into Mary Whitehouse?

I have just been listening to the Robbie Williams Greatest Hits CD that dh got me for Christmas (not the one I asked for but that's another thread). Luckily I was listening on my own as on one of the tracks the lovely Robbie sings "fuck you all" -- quite clearly I might add .
I have the album that the track in question comes from and it has one of those parental advisory stickers on the front so I am always very careful to censor the offending tracks when the DSs are around.
But there is no such sticker on the Greatest Hits album! I don't think I'm a prude but I don't use language like this in front of my children and I don't really think it's appropriate for them to hear it.
So, what do you think? Should there be some sort of warning or is it now perfectly acceptable for children to hear this sort of language? (Blimey, now I really do sound like Mary Whitehouse )

I think it should have a warning sticker on wordgirl, its not unlikely that a parent or older sibling may be listening to the album when a small child is around

Write to the record company and complain, Robbie might pop round with an apology

Fantastic idea tillykins - and if he does I can take the opportunity to wash his mouth out!

And you will be washing his mouth out with...?

No, you're not turning into Mary WHitehouse. I can swear like the proverbial trooper - but never in front of the kids and don't like to hear bad language as an everyday, every other word thing.

Wordgirl, we live in Holland and last year, one of the songs in the local supermarket (you know, the 'lift music' sort of thing) was this Robbie Williams song! It was quite bizarre to be queueing for sliced ham with my children and hearing such explicit lyrics
