CHELSEA, Mich. -

A member of the popular group One Direction has taken to Twitter, criticizing parents in Metro Detroit, all because of the group's song, "Live While We're Young."

The song has some lyrics that a local man says are too risqué: "I know we just met...get some."

Mike Stone has a daughter and son who both sing in the Chelsea High School choir. He said the words suggest sex, so he went to school leaders to try to convince the choir director to have the kids sing some different words.

The Saturday night high school band concert ended with the big British band's number, but Stone's children didn't perform the song, and Sunday morning One Direction's Louis Tomlinson posted a tweet directed at Stone.

"Dear Mr. and Mrs. Stone, I'm deeply saddened by your complaint to Chelsea High School regarding our lyrics...I hope the two of you 'get some' very soon," Tomlinson tweeted.

Stone said he's not responding to the tweet and that he feels the ordeal is over. He said he's proud of his kids for going in what he called the "right direction."
