The Lyrics

A Yoness and Lancefunkle collaboration
You take all the fun away,
though heart's in the right place
Feeding on your deepest fears
The worst case is all she hears

The instinct is primative
She just want her kids to live
Tracks me down incessently
And follows me home like I'm a child
What a buzz kill
I want to be wild

You're gonna shoot your eye out, bang bang
I am the worrier
Yes I am the worrier
It hard, too hard to change
when you're a mom... the worrier, the worrier

You talk, talk, talk to me
sometime beat me physically
tuck me in every night
Don't let the bed bugs bite
(oh), now I'm older and it's a shame
still acting just the same
stay in close vicinity
I will never change your worrying style
If I'm ten minutes late
You've already dialed!

You'll go blind if you keep doing that, bang bang
I am the worrier
Yes I am the worrier
It hard, too hard to change-
Hard, too hard to change when you're a mom.
('Yes, I brushed my teeth'...'Ok, I'll be sure to take my jacket!'...'it's nothing, just a bruise!')

Nice little parody on an eminently spoofable song. I'm old enough to remember this tune ... I mean how can you not love a song that has the lyrics "I dont want to tame your animal style."
