"We used to be cool!" LOL The Parent Rap says it all, y'all!

This has got to be the funniest and coolest song and music video I've seen in ages. I am so going to memorize the lyrics of "Parent Rap" and I suggest you sing it with me, too!

Don't make me count to 1-2-3
Yeah, it's the parent rap, y'all
We may spend most of our time chasing toddlers down but
We still know how to rock the hizzle
I don't even know what you just said 

We used to be cool!
Back in the day, back on the block
Watching PG-13 movies, staying up way after dark
Then we had a couple shorties
And now we're really flossy
'Cause now we be rollin' with our own little posse
In the mini van
Or in our little wagon
Let me throw it to the moms 
Cause the little one is saggin'

I used to bling it up, I used to dress real shrewd 
Now I accessorize with food that's already been chewed
And that's all rightI make this diaper bag look good
When I'm walking through the mall tryin' to wrangle my brood
My PB&Js will set your world on fire
I could make you mac 'n' cheese blindfolded on a wire
I'm wipin' the doo-doo
Kissin' the booboos
Got them eyes in the back of my head, I see all you do. 
Using your full name so you know I ain't playin'
And that's why all my kiddos, they keep sayin'

Mom, mom, she's the bomb, 
Rocking all night till the break of dawn
Cooking them peas so I'll grow up strong
Got my second seat belt if we crash head on 
Dad, dad, he's the man, 
Workin' real hard to support the clan
Traded in his Porsche for an old sedan
Raisin' those brows if we get outta hand

When it come to Candyland, I'm a stone-cold player
Helpin' out with the homework, I'm an Algebra slayer
Wrestle carseats into place without spillin' my mug
If I tuck you in at night, you'll be as snug as a bug
Then I'm off in the morning to make that cheese
You may not know this yet, but it doesn't grow on trees
Now, mama, take it please, what, uh, take it

I'm droppin' time-out's like they're hot
Potty training all my tots
Washin' all the pans and pots
Tyin' little shoes in knots 
Givin' knowlege to your brain
Like, "If your friend jumped off a train, you don't have to do the same"
Now get your toys out of the rain!
I'm cleanin' every spill
Cuttin' coupons like a vil
If you need parental skill 
Now you know we are for real!
You don't think our rhyms are ill, boy?
Then you're grounded for a mil!

Mom, mom, she's legit
Makin' us chill when we pitch a fit
Telling us to share and never to hit
If you can't say somethin' nice put a sock in it
Dad, dad, he's the guy
Never gets tired of playing "I Spy"
The constant barage of kids asking "Why?"
And he always pretends he needs another tie 

You know money doesn't grow on trees
Why buy the cow if the milk is free?
This won't hurt you as much as it hurts me
If you want dessert, eat another veggie
Close that door 
You weren't born in a stable
Sit up straight
And kiss your Aunt Mable
Close your mouth when you chew 
Get your elbows off the table
Mom and Dad of the Year!
Check it, that's the label

It's the parent rap y'all
And it's apparent 
We're great parents
Mom and daddy in the house
Mom and daddy own the house
Mom and daddy need to clean the house...

Keep your hands to yourself, boy
Don't make me stop this beat, I'll do it!  I'll pull this beat right over

No matter what, it's apparent we're great parents! So chill, moms and dads.
