The Mama Blues (Sung to the Tune of "I want a Little Sugar in My Bowl")

I want less mom guilt
in my soul
I want a little reprieve
from its hold
I could stand some freedom
oh so bad
Nothing is enough's so sad

I wish the napping
I crave for you
was not such a horrible
thing to do
whatsa matter baby
I only have two arms
can't you turn on some
of that baby charm?

Well I want a little less mom guilt
in my soul
Well I want a little reprieve from its hold
You need some alone time, yes its true
I only want the very best for you

"Hold me, Mommy," you always say
And rarely in the nicest way

I want less mom guilt
in my soul
I want a little reprieve
from its hold
Maybe I will feel this way until I'm old
Whatsa matter baby
I only have two arms
Let me have 10 minutes of your charm
I ain't foolin
Give me a reprieve--yeah
pretty please.

I love this! Singin' is one way to express yourself and no better way than to sing them blues! Go mama! Go! Sing it!

I'm glad this wasn't to the tune of Strange Fruit. :)
