"The Mom Song"
Get up now
Get up now
Get up out of bed
Wash your face
Brush your teeth
Comb your sleepyhead
Here's your clothes and your shoes
Hear the words I said
Get up now! Get up and make your bed
Are you hot? Are you cold?
Are you wearing that?
Where's your books and your lunch and your homework at?
Grab your coat and gloves and your scarf and hat
Don't forget! You gotta feed the cat
Eat your breakfast, the experts tell us it's the most
important meal of all
Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big
Please remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at 3
Don't forget your piano lesson is this afternoon so you must
The bus is here
Come back here
Did you wash behind your ears?
Play outside, don't play rough, will you just play fair?
Be polite, make a friend, don't forget to share
Work it out, wait your turn, never take a dare
Get along! Don't make me come down there
Clean your room, fold your clothes, put your stuff away
Make your bed, do it now, do we have all day?
Were you born in a barn? Would you like some hay?
Can you even hear a word I say?
Answer the phone! Get off the phone!
Don't sit so close, turn it down, no texting at the table
No more computer time tonight!
Your iPod's my iPod if you don't listen up
Where are you going and with whom and what time do you
think you're coming home?
Saying thank you, please, excuse me makes you welcome
everywhere you roam
You'll appreciate my wisdom someday when you're older and
Can't wait till you have a couple little children of your own
You'll thank me for the counsel I gave you so willingly
But right now I thank you not to roll your eyes at me
Close your mouth when you chew, would appreciate
Take a bite maybe two of the stuff you hate
Use your fork, do not burp or I'll set you straight
Eat the food I put upon your plate
Get an A, get the door, don't get smart with me
Get a grip, get in here, I'll count to three
Get a job, get a life, get a PHD
Get a dose of,
"I don't care who started it!
You're grounded until you're 36"
Get your story straight and tell the truth for once,
for heaven's sakeAnd if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump, too?
If I've said it once, I've said at least a thousand times beforeThat you're too old to act this wayIt must be your father's DNALook at me when I am talkingStand up straighter when you walkA place for everything and everything must be in placeStop crying or I'll give you something real to cry aboutOh!Brush your teeth, wash your face, put your PJs onGet in bed, get a hug, say a prayer with momDon't forget, I love youAnd tomorrow we will do this all again because a mom's work never endsYou don't need the reason whyBecause, because, because, becauseI said so, I said so, I said so, I said soI'm the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom!!Ta da!!!
