Anita Renfroe

This is a video of probably the FUNNIEST thing about motherhood I have ever seen. It never gets old, I can watch it over and over.
After you have watched it, the lyrics are below the video if you want to try and follow along
THE MOM OVERTURE by Anita Renfroe

Get 'em out, get ‘em out, get ‘em out of bed~ Wash your face, brush your teeth, come on sleepy head~ Get your clothes, get your shoes, get a word 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 your gloves and your scarf and hat~ Don’t forget, you got to feed the cat~ Eat your breakfast. Experts tells us it’s the most important meal of all~ Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall~ Remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at three today~ Don’t forget piano lessons are this afternoon so you must play. Don’t shuffle, she’s lovely, but hurry, the bus is hear~ be careful, come back here, did you wash, behind your ears.

Play outside, don’t play rough, could you just play fare~ Be polite, make a friend, don’t forget to share~ Work it out, take your turn, never take a dare~ Get along, don’t make me come down there~ Clean your room, pick up clothes, put your stuff away~ Make your bed, do it now, do you have all day~ Were you born in a barn, would you like some hay~ Do 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 ipods my ipod if you don’t listen up

Were you going, when your leaving and what time do you think your coming home?~ Say thank you, please, excuse me, bless you , welcome every were you go~ You’ll appreciate my wisdom someday when your older and you are grown~ Can’t wait until you have a couple little children of your own~ You’ll thank me for the council I gave you so willingly~ But right now I’ll thank you not to roll your eyes at me~ Close your mouth when you chew and appreciate~ Take a bite, maybe two of the stuff you hate~ Use a fork, do not burp or I’ll set you straight~ Eat the food I put upon your plate~ Get an A, but don’t get smart with me~ Get a grip, take a breath, counting down to three~ Get a job, get a life, get a PhD~ Here we go.

I don’t care who started it~ Your grounded until your 36~ Get your story straight and tell the truth for once for heaven sake~ And if all your friends jumped off a cliff would you jump too?~ If I said it once I’ve said it at least a thousand times before that~ Your too old to act this way~ Must be your fathers DNA~ Look at me when I am talking~ Stand up straighter when you walk~ A place for everything~ And everything must be in place~ Stop crying or I’ll give you something real to cry about~ Oh

Brush your teeth, wash your face put your pjs on~ Get in bed, get a hug, Say a prayer with mom~ Don’t forget, I love you, *kiss*~ And tomorrow we will do this all again~ Because your moms job never ends~ You don’t need a reason why~ Because, because, because, because~ I said so~ I said so~ I said so~ I said so~I’m the mom, the mom, the mom, mom, mom~ The Mom~ Tada
