幾個星期前，同事放了一個演唱影片給學生聽，我也順便聽了一下，內容非常有趣，是描寫當一個媽媽整天要唸的事，因為配上快速的威廉泰爾序曲(William Tell Overture)，"笑果"十足。後來我又找到另一首Momsense，是由Anita Renfroe唱的，歌詞有一點不一樣，到底哪一個是原版我也搞不清楚。剛剛找到她的官方網站，有她現場演唱的Momisms影片，歌詞和 The Mom Song 一樣。
Youtube上面有一個CBS 記者 Hannah Storm 做的專訪，上載日期是2007年10月3日，她的網站也說她2007年表演很多場，看來這首歌應該是2007年就有了。她是一個喜劇演員，這首歌你絕不能錯過。我花了一點時間翻譯了其中一首，請大家指教，另一首就先不翻了，或許有一天我們也可以用中文唱，我一邊翻譯已經一邊唱起來了，你也試試看！
The Mom Song (我覺得唱的人應該不是Anita Renfroe。)

Get up now, get up now, get up out of bed.
Grab some coffe and dress for the day ahead.
Get a lot on my plate and I don't mean bread.
I'm the mom- I keep 'em clean and fed.
Diaper off, diaper on- are they warm and dry?
Pick 'em up, put 'em down, swing 'em way up high.
Put some socks on their feet- hold 'em when they cry.
Grab some juice and sing a lullaby.
Got the pediatrician and the playdates listed in my PDA.
Gotta a washer and dryer that's always on 'cause everyday is laundry day.
I can balance a child on one hip and balance my checkbook on the go.
In this house I'm the wonder-working-multitasking-mommy-CEO.
Sometimes when it's 4 and I forgot to make dinner plans.
I magically make meals from stuff I have right on hand.
Gotta save where I can 'cause the times are tough.
And I don't need a lot of expensive stuff.
Love my life everyday- isn't that enough?
Do my best for all the ones I love.
So now it's time to take a stand for moms everywhere across this land.
We need quality that's higher but won't break the bank for diapers.
We believe it's time to say "enough!" and draw the line.
If we've said it once, we've said at least a thousand times before that.
We're too smart to overpay for something that we use everyday.
We need super leak protection, value from the diaper section.
And if the moms got more for less what happiness!
And that would make this world a better place for everyone- oh!
Wash 'em up, dry 'em down, get their jammies on.
Rock a while, hug 'em tight, tuck'em in 'till dawn.
Don't forget- mom loves you.
And tomorrow we will do this all again because a mom's love never ends.
We all know the reason why.
Because, because, because, because,
This is life, this if life, this is life, this is life.
I'm the mom, the mom, the mom, the mom.
The mom. Ta-da!
