I'm Mommy and I Know It

A Musical Mother's Day Tribute, Yo

For those of you who have been on a self-imposed media blackout for the last six months or so:

1.  Thanks for making this your first stop on your pop-culture re-entry tour.

2.  You might be the only person in the world who doesn't know this song:


[If you can't see the video, please click here.]

In keeping with the spirit of Mother's Day, I'd like to offer my own version of this LMFAO toe-tapper.

This goes out with love to all the mommies!

I'm Mommy and I Know It

Yeah, yeah
When I walk to school, kids look at me like, darn, she’s cool
I bounce to the beat, workin’ that crosswalk in my Shape-Ups feet
They see me stroll, my tricked-out Bugaboo is how I roll
My kiddie humor is oh-so-droll
And just like Oprah, I’m in control

Child, look at these highlights
Child, look at these invites
Child, look at these nite-nites
Ah-ah, I wake up!

Child, look at that swingset
Child, look at that new pet,
Child, look at that what you get
Ah-ah, I wake up!

When I walk on the school yard, this is what I see
Everybody stops and they’re staring at me
I got tissues in my purse and I ain’t afraid to
blow it, blow it, blow it, blow it

I’m Mommy and I know it.

Yeah
When I’m at the mall, I nurse like a pro when I hear the call
When I’m at the beach, I put sunscreen on my baby’s cheeks
This is how it is, and on the side I got a jewelry-makin’ biz
We gotta fix the van but don’t be nervous
’Cuz no one fears me like customer service

Child, look at these highlights
Child, look at these invites
Child, look at these nite-nites
Ah-ah, I wake up!

Child, look at that swingset
Child, look at that new pet,
Child, look at that what you get
Ah-ah, I wake up!

When I walk into dance class, this is what I see
Everybody stops and they’re staring at me
I got tissues in my purse and I ain’t afraid to
blow it, blow it, blow it, blow it

I’m Mommy and I know it.

Check it out:

Juggle, juggle, juggle, juggle, juggle, yeah
Juggle, juggle, juggle, juggle, juggle, yeah
Juggle, juggle, juggle, juggle, juggle, yeah
Do the juggle mom
I do the juggle mom
I’m Mommy and I know it.

Child, look at these highlights
Child, look at these invites
Child, look at these nite-nites
Ah-ah, I wake up!

Child, look at that swingset
Child, look at that new pet,
Child, look at that what you get
Ah-ah, I wake up!

I’m Mommy and I know it!

This is completely BRILLIANT. I love it. I didn't think anyone could come up with a parody funnier than this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYvt6ZZ9y2Y&feature=fvst But you have.

I must have been living under a rock, because I had never seen that video or heard the song. And now I need to go bleach my brain.

Cheryl said...

Well, I'm the troll who's never seen it and still haven't seen it in its entirety because I was too busy jukin' to your lyrics.

Happy Mo' Day, Anna.

Yo.

The Empress said...

Oh my gosh.

She does it all.

She looks like she could be in the movies and I'd rather listen to her rap than that crazy gemini sh*t that Nicki Minaj does.

We all know who I'm talking about: It's Anna Lefler.

Typing words like vajayjay while her children sit in the room right next door.

I'm telling you: once every millenium, one like this appears.

bernthis said...

Brilliant. Phoebe and I watched and sang the lyrics together oxi

Nora Blithe said...

Confession: I did not know that song probably because I don't listen to the radio which is directly related to the fact that radios play that song. Hope you had a happy Mother's Day!

Julie said...

Your kids are soooo lucky you keep tissues in your purse.

My mom kept hers up her sleeve.

I'm still traumatized...

Grand Pooba said...

I think you need to change it to I'm a sexy mamma and I know it!

Who cares if it's too many syllables?
