INTRO

{GAVEL HITS} Head of PTA: Now this… is the meeting of the P.T.A…

Mama, I hear you got somethin’ to say

Mama:  Oh…, Yeah!…  I sure….do!

VERSE 1 

Mama, Rapped, in front of the PTA:

So listen out there [and] open your eyes

[‘Cause] all you parents - [gotta] recognize

[That] we love our kids, [and] we do our best

But the way things are, we don’t rest!

{Beat}{Beat}{Beat} Uh un!

Hey, all you parents, better listen to yo’ mama

Do they think we’re starrin’ in an endless drama?

Do we pick ‘em up, do we pack ‘em up their snacks?

Do we take ‘em to the mall (‘n’ the mall) and back!?

Mama, Cross-Eyed: PANT, PANT, PANT {Beat}

Yeah, we pick ‘em up, and we pack ‘em up their snacks

What do they think - we run a caddie shack?!!!

{Mama and Parents CHUCKLE}

CHORUS {Variant of Traditional song, “Drunken Sailor”}

Parents, Sung: Way hay and up she rises

Way hay and up she rises

Way hay and up she rises

Early in the morning.

Parents, Rapped:

Huh! {Beat}{Beat} Yo Mama!

Huh! {Beat}{Beat} Yo Mama!

Huh! {Beat}{Beat} Head of PTA: Yo Mama!

Parents Sung: Early in the morn.

VERSE  2

Mama, Rapped:

So take some action [and] stay on top, oh

A parent's job, it doesn't stop, so

Speak up when you've had enough

And show 'em what we call tough love!

Heckler Parent: You tell ‘em, Mama! {SFX: GAVEL} Head of PTA: Order!

Now, we all deal with their attitudes,

Their lack of respect, [and] their funky moods

But we stick it out, through thick or thin -

            [‘Cause] parenthood is the state we’re in.

Heckler Parent: Yeah, the state of denial! {Parents LAUGH}

Mama: [But] we stick it out, through thick or thin

Mama, Hands in prayer:   [‘Cause] being a parent is a life-long thing!

Mama, Rapped, looking up to the Lord:  

Oh, Lord, Pray for us, because

we need all the help we can get!

YO MAMA CHORUS {Drunken Sailor verse under rapping}:

Parents, Rapped:

Huh! {Beat}{Beat} Yo Mama!

Huh! {Beat}{Beat} Yo Mama!

Huh! {Beat}{Beat} Head of PTA: Yo Mama!

Parents, Sung: Early in the morn. ..

BRIDGE

Mama, Rapped: So, I tell ‘em…

I don’t wanna put up with all your crap

Clean up your room – it’s a fire trap

And I don’t wanna hear that nasty rap

Sung: Early in the morning!  

Parent #1 : You go, girl!!  Mama: Now…

Mama:Don’t look at me as if I’m dead -

I know you heard just what I said

[So] get your lazy butt out of bed

Sung: Early in the morning!

Spoken:  Parent #2: Now that’s telling ‘em!!! Mama:  Now everybody!

Parents, Rapped: I don’t wanna put up with all your crap

Clean up your room – it’s a fire trap

And I don’t wanna hear that nasty rap

Sung: Early in the morning.

Mama, Spoken:  Hey, that’s it! You’re getting it!

Now say it…like you mean it!

Parents, Rapped: Now, don’t look at me as if I’m dead -

I know you heard just what I said

[So] get your lazy butt out of bed

Sung: Early in the morning!

{Parents CHEER, WOO-HOO, CLAP}

Spoken: Mama: They sure can get me fired up, but don’t forget…

they are our kids and we love them, no matter what.

Parent #1:  We hear you, Mama!  Heckler Parent: Oh Yeah!

Parent #2: Uh huh!  Head of PTA: Oh yeah!

VERSE 3

Mama, Rapped: So don’t let their attitude get you down

In years to come, life turns around.

Yeah, when they’re a parent, wait and see…

            How their kids drive ‘em cra-zy!...{SFX DISTORTS “crazy”}

 {CHUCKLE} Oh yeah, when

they grow up, just wait and see… -

Male Parents: (Wait and see… ) Female Parents: (Wait and see…)

Mama: They might turn out… {CHUCKLE}

like you and me!!! {WICKED CHUCKLE}
