The Lyrics

IVF=In-Vitro Fertilization. ICSI=Introcytoplasmic sperm injection (pronounced "Ick-see"). ZIFT=Zygote Intrafallopian transfer. GIFT=Gamete Intrafallopian Transfer. That's just FYI.
"Collections" in a cup
Take the thrill from making love
Bad sperm, bad eggs--no dice
But we get lots of advice
You know, five years of shots and pills
Got us lots of grief and medic bills
While our friends have teens, we've no means
We want a kid

Third birthmom we have tried
Baby promised, but she lied
Ten grand support we paid
But she vamoosed on her due date
We've paid our lawyers and placed ads
To adopt a girl or lad
While our friends have teens, we've no means
We want a kid

We know every clinic and every technique
IVF, ICSI. GIFT, ZIFT--not unique
And every agency in San Antone
But we are still waiting
And we're not alone

We found
Donors for sale or rent
Wombs cost more than 50 cents
Good eggs? Good sperm? We'll pay!
And sublet an ovar-ray
We found the answer to our pleas
It's pregnancy surrogate-ly
While our friends have teens, we've found means
We want a kid
We want a kid
We want a kid...

Thanks Alvin! (BTW, this parody is based partly on personal experience, part on friends' experiences)

Thanks UnKnownVotress. My Lady and I have been together 20 years, to be exact and yes, we finally adopted 2 beautiful girls who are now entering their teen years. Gulp.

Lovely song. Having kids is a big responsibility. I give you props though.
