ANITA RENFROEMom's William Tell Overture Lyrics
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, youíve gotta 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.
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net ]
Canít wait til you have a couple little children of your own.
Youíll thank me for the council I gave you so willingly,
But right now I thank you not to roll your eyes at me.
Close your mouth when you chew, weíd appreciate,
Take a bite, maybe two, of the stuff you hate.
Use your fork, do not burp or Iíll set you straight.
Eat the food I put upon your plate.
Get an A, get in the door, donít be smart with me,
Get a grip, get in here on count to three,
Get a job, Get a life, get a PhD, get a dose of
I donít care who started it,
Youíre grounded until youíre 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 to?
If Iíve said once Iíve said it 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 straighter 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 pjís on.
Get in bed, get a hug, say a prayer with Mom.
Donít forget I love you (kiss)
And tomorrow we will do this all again
Because a Momís work never ends.
You donít need the reason why,
Because, Because, Because, Because,
I said so, I said so, I said so, I said so.
Iím the Mom, the Mom, the Mom, the Mom, the Mom!
