Do What Your Momma Said!

Description
Not sure what "style" this is. Wrote it because it's true, and I had great fun with the arrangement and production. No idea - maybe "Raffi meets Devo"? Hope you enjoy...

Do What Your Momma Said

Eat your veggies, clean your plate
Don’t be naughty. Don’t stay up late.
Brush your teeth and make your bed.
Do what your momma said.

Dress for the weather. Rise and shine!
Share with others, and be on time.
Keep happy thoughts inside your head.
Do what your momma said.

Every day you get a chance to make your momma proud
Be polite and friendly, be kind - and not too loud.
Stay close and don’t go wandering off when you’re out in a crowd.
If you’re not sure if it’s OK, then ask if you’re allowed.

Please be helpful. Do your chores.
Clean up messes – especially yours.
Don’t hurt anyone! Be nice instead.
Do what your momma said.

Just be sure to have some fun
After all your chores are done.
When you’re done, then go ahead.
If that’s what your momma said.

Every day you get a chance to make your momma smile
Do the things you have to do for just a little while
Be polite and friendly, and remember to be fair.
Please be good, you know you should. Hey, mammas really care.

We can’t be happy all the time
But try to make your love light shine
Things will get happy, there’s smiles ahead
IF you do what your mamma said!

(So do what your mamma said!)

Ringo!
Excellent suggestion. I'll give him a call tomorrow...

Just a folk singer. Well - mostly a folk singer, but I like to try just about every style a middle-class white guy from Mid-Michigan can sincerely try. Be sure to check out my "band" — I used to play R&R with these guys back in the 70s, but now we'... [see more]
