The Whoa Mamma Blues


I'm lying in my bed
I don't wanna get up
But I need another coffee
As I stare at my empty cup      

I think I have a fever
My head feels in a spin
The spin is pounding faster
As Miss A yells out for her twin

Someone call a Doctor
Mamma's feeling ill
And if he looks like George Clooney from ER
It would give me such a thrill


We have no more milk
And I think we're outta bread
The girls are getting hungry
Please don't make me get out of bed


I hear the taps a-running
Followed by cheeky giggles
Why can't they stay out of trouble?
Please sit down and go watch 'The Wiggles'!

I haven't had much Luck
Things keep on going wrong
So that's why in my delirious state
I thought I'd write this song


And what is a Mamma to do
when she has no oven to bake in?
It kerplunked on me the other day
Just as I was putting my moussaka in


Have I forgotten to mention
That I've a stye in my right eye?
And I have to have my photo taken
for my passport before I can fly?

Did you hear about our car
that went up in a puff of smoke?
Someone lit it like a candle,
I wish it was a joke


We had to put our cat down
She was such a pretty kitty
At 20 she was deaf and blind
My heart broke, what a pity!

But I'm a Big-Hearted Mamma,
Who goes where she is needed
I'll soldier on,
Turn my Woes into Whoa's!
And trust one day that my Dreams will be heeded.

Oh no Jess! It is all happening at your house. Thinking of you. Hope the long weekend starts off well and if it doesn't do ALT, CTRL DELETE xxx gemma

Jess WhoaMamma said...

Ooooh, thanks Gemma honey! Have to remember that one: ALT, CTRL DELETE. Might need to use it a couple of times before this beastly month is through, at the rate we're going. When it rains, it pours, but after the storm there's always a Rainbow, right? And I'm all for chasing Rainbows! Happy Long Weekend to you too, sweetie! ♥ xxx
