Single Parentin'

To the tune of Dolly Parton, 9-5.



12-12


Tumble outta bed and I stumble to the kitchen
Pour myself a cup of submission
And yawnin', stretchin', try to come to life

Try and jump in the shower and the blood starts pumpin'
Out of their beds, the kids start a jumpin'
With folks like me on the job from 12 to 12

Single parentin' 12 to 12, what a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just abuse your mind and they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

12 to 12, for service and devotion
You would think that I would deserve a fair promotion
Want to move ahead but the kids won't seem to let me
I swear sometimes those kids are out to get me

They let your dream, just watch 'em shatter
You're just a step on the boss man's ladder
But you got dreams they'll never take away

In the same boat with a lot of your friends
Waitin' for the day your ship 'll come in
And the tide's gonna turn an' it's all gonna roll you away

Single parentin' 12 to 12 what a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just abuse your mind and you never get the credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

12 to 12, yeah, they got you where they want you
There's a better life and you think about it, don't you?
It's a rich man's game, no matter what they call it
And you spend your life putting money in their wallet

Single parentin' 12 to 12, oh what a way to make a livin'
Barely gettin' by, it's all takin' and no givin'
They just use your mind and they never give you credit
It's enough to drive you crazy if you let it

12 to 12, yeah, they got you where they want you
There's a better life and you think about it, don't you?
It's a rich man's game, no matter what they call it
And you spend your life putting money in their wallet


Anyone else singing along?

  2. Totally! And agreeing with the above about when you're all sick. Sucks BIG time.
    But they do make it worth while. Sometimes.
    Mostly when they're asleep. Or at school ;)
