Mamas Paradise

 

As I walk through the perils of raisin’ these kids
I take a look at my house and realise it ain’t well kept

‘Cause I’ve been bossing and ordering so long,
That even my hubby thinks that my mind is gone,

But I ain’t ever crossed a kid that didn’t melt down,
Me bein’ treated like a maid you know that’s not unheard of,

You better watch where you’re steppin’ where you’re walkin’
Or you and your toeies might be lined in cast

I really hate to trip, but legos’ small,
As I stumble, I see myself in a hospital hall,

Kids!

I’m the kinda M that forgets to brush her teeth
On my knees in the night scrubbing floors ‘til midnight

 

Been spending most my days living in this Mama’s Paradise
Been spending most my days living in this Mama’s Paradise
Keep spending all their days shunning this Mama’s best advice
Keep spending all their days shunning this Mama’s sage advice

 

Look at the situation they got me facin’
I can’t live a quiet life, I got young people to be raisin’

So I gotta be down with the mama team,
Too much Oprah’s vision got me doubting my mama genes,

I’m an educated mama with my kids on my mind
Got my baby in my hand , my bigun’s by my side,

I’m a caffeine fuelled mama, sleep deprived wife ,
And my patience is thin, so don’t even go there
HUBBY!


Life ain’t nothin’ but a chorus of ‘Can I’s’

I’m livin’ life, yeah or nay, what can I say

I’m 23 now, ha, who am I kiddin’
The way things is goin’, I don’t know

Tell me why were we so blind to see
Having more than one forces you to referee

 

Shouting and the fighting, fighting and the shouting,
Minute after minute, hour after hour ,

Everybody’s running but of course they ain’t looking,
What’s going on in playroom, while I’m out here cookin

They say they’ve gotta learn and I’m the one to teach ‘em,
If they can understand me, why won’t they heed me !

I guess they can, I guess they won’t ,
I guess they ignore ,that’s when I throw that mama look,

KIDS!

Tell me why were we so blind to see
Having more than one forces you to referee

Tell me why are they so blind to see
The toilet seat is not pee free …

You are a great writer and have good comedic timing. It did make me laugh when you said I’m a caffeine fuelled mama, sleep deprived wife ,
And my patience is thin, so don’t even go there
