  1. Oh my, I just shared this with my husband and we both could not stop laughing!

    Wish I could think as fast as she speaks!

    Thanks, I really needed to laugh this afternoon.



  2. ROTFLOL!!!! This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time!!!:)

  3. This is even making the rounds on Face Book. Everyone should watch this for some levity. Enjoy, and keep laughing.

  4. Did this lady know my mom? She said everything on that song! Hysterical!

  5. LOL! This is really a good one! Thanks for adding laughter to our lives!

  6. Katie Coonley says:

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I watched this with my twelve-year-old son; now he knows I’m NOT the only mom who says those things. ๐Ÿ™‚ (And he thought it was really good.)

  7. My mother constantly said, “If all your friends would jump off the roof, would you jump too?”

    I must send this to here, lol:)

  8. This was funny. While I don’t agree with the statement about giving them something to cry about, I did find myself laughing and remembering my mother. LOL

  9. I heard her sing this at the Women of Faith conference this year and it was just as funny now as it was then! THank you!

  10. This is hilarious! I cannot believe how much of what she says I heard as a kid…. and now sound like my mom! :o) Laughter is truly the best medicine. What a great end to my day! Thank you!!!!!

  11. Thank You for the Laugh! I laughed so loud, my four year old came running and asked me why I was laughing. I am one of seven children, so sometimes my Mom DID sound like that.
    Thanks again.

  12. loved it…thank you…there really is a mom handbook

  13. Absolutely hilarious!

    My mom was really into the “Because I said so” thing! EVERYTHING ended with “because I said so”!

  14. OMG! This is all… SO TRUE!! Well, you can’t live without mom’s for long. But it would be nice while it lasted! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Here’s a new one…I cried my eyes out through the whole thing. (Wonder where that came from…!) It is fantastic, and I will share it with every mother I know! Thanks, Ellen, for finding that and bringing it to us.

  16. Kathy Pletz says:

    I loved it, Laughed out loud. I would love to hear all the words, she speaks so fast I can’t catch it all. Anyway the words can be printed?

  17. that was fantastic! found the lyrics at:

    Absolutely hilarious! Cos half way round the world (Singapore), everything on that song’s amazingly familiar!

    Some contextual differences, yes. But otherwise, the words all match!

    And the scary thing is, it sounds like my Mom, but it also sounds like me! Screaming, nagging, reminding, … my own kids!

    Thanks for the laugh!
    I really needed it!
    I’m switching from Coke / Coffee / Nibbly pick-me-ups to this clip!

  19. How absolutely perfect, right down to the classical music! When my kids were pre-teens they cut back their near constant ‘why’ or ‘why not’, when I started responding in a not-so lovely soprano voice..’be eeeee eeeee cause I said sooooo’. Now they can see it was all pretty normal!

  20. Terrific, so funny and absolutely true. I would like to learn the words so I can sing the appropriate parts to my children when needed.
    Does anyone know who the woman singing is?

    Really enjoy receiving your updates as they give me what to think about and put some perspective in my daily hectc lives

  21. Loved it!!
    She might want to consider a teacher version of the song. I’m sure there’s plenty of fodder for that possibility.

  22. Brilliant, There wasn’t one of those things I haven’t said.
    Now I’m going to practice my singing and maybe then my son will get it or at least we can all have a laugh !

  23. Wow, this is terrific! My daughter loved it as well:) (she’s 14)

  24. Made me laugh. All those phrases my mum used and now I am using – and have tried so hard not to but they are all essential ๐Ÿ™‚
