Below is a sampling of the lyrics from “The Parent Rap”…
We used to be cool!
Back in the day, back on the block
Watching PG-13 movies, staying up way after dark.
Then we had a couple shorties
And now we're really flossy
Cause now we be rollin' with our own little posse.
In the mini van
Or in our little wagon
Let me throw it to the moms
Cause the little one is saggin’.
I used to bling it up, I used to dress real shrewd
Now, I accessorize with food that's already been chewed.
And that's all right.
I make this diaper bag look good
When I'm walking through the mall tryin' to wrangle my brood.
My PB&Js will set your world on fire,
I could make you mac-n-cheese blindfolded on a wire.
I'm wiping the do-do,
Kissin' the booboos,
Got them eyes in the back of my head, I see all you do.
Using your full name so you know I ain't playin'
And that's why all my kiddo's, they keep sayin.'
