My daughter and I had a little disagreement, and this song is how it turned out.
The Mom Was Right Song
Okay, that isn’t really what happened. There’s a tiny kernel of truth in there – I thought she should wear her coat and she didn’t wear it – but the rest is mostly a tissue of lies. For example, if she rolled her eyes at me and sassed me like that, I’d knock her into the middle of next week. But in our family no event is too small to dramatize, mock, and reminisce about for years afterwards, and we generally take jokes way, way too far. I think the tune sounds pretty good – I’m going to try to get her to write actual lyrics for it.
