The Mom Song Lyrics

Melodi: Overturen til Wilhelm Tell


Get up now

Get up now

Get up out of bed

Wash your face

Brush your teeth

Comb your sleepy head

Hereís 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?

Whereís your books and your lunch and your homework at?

Grab your coat and your gloves and your scarf and hat

Donít forget you got to feed the cat

Eat your breakfast

The experts tell us itís the most important meal of all

Take your vitamins so you will grow up one day to be big and tall

Please remember the orthodontist will be seeing you at three today?

Donít forget your piano lesson is this afternoon


So you must play

Donít shovel

Chew slowly

But hurry

The bus is here

Be careful

Come back here

Did you wash behind your ears?

Play outside

Donít play rough

Would you just play fair?

Be polite

Make a friend

Donít forget to share

Work it out

Wait your turn

Never take a dare

Get along

Donít 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

Donít sit so close

Turn it down

No texting at the table

No more computer time tonight

Your iPodís my iPod if you donít listen up

Where you going and with whom and what time do you think youíre coming home?

Saying thank you, please, excuse me

Makes you welcome everywhere you roam

Youíll appreciate my wisdom

Someday when youíre older and youíre grown

Canít wait ítil you have a couple little children of your own

Youíll 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 you burp

Or Iíll set you straight

Eat the food I put upon your plate

Get an egg A, Get the door

Donít get smart with me

Get a Grip

Get in here Iíll count to 3

Get a job

Get a life

Get a PhD

Get a dose of reality

I donít care who started it

Youíre grounded until your 36

Get your story straight

And tell the truth for once for heavenís sake

And if all your friends jumped off a cliff

Would you jump too?


If Iíve said it once, Iíve said at least a thousand times before that

Youíre too old to act this way

It must be your fatherís DNA

Look at me when I am talking

Stand up straight when you walk

A place for everything

And everything must be in place

Stop crying or Iíll give you something real to cry about


Brush your teeth

Wash your face

Get your PJs on

Get in bed

Get a hug

Say a prayer with Mom

Donít forget

I love you


And tomorrow we will do this all again because a momís work never ends

You donít need the reason why





I said so

I said so

I said so

I said so

Iím the Mom

The mom

The mom

The mom

The mom
