I Gotta Feeling: The Sleep Deprived Mom Song


Have you heard that song "I Gotta Feeling" by the Black Eyed Peas? If you haven't, it's pretty catchy. I just happened to hear it on the radio the other evening when I was up with one of the kids and instead of singing "tonight's gonna be a good night" I said "tonight's gonna be a long night" and the rest is history...

Here's my version for all you Mommas that may be spending those long nights not partying, but up with children! No copyright infringement is intended and I don't claim the original song as my own. You can see the original lyrics here. I may have to see if I can find someone with video camera skills to record a parody video though...

I Gotta Feeling
I got a feeling that tonight's gonna be a long night,
That tonight's gonna be a long night
That's tonight's gonna be a long, long night

A feeling (Oh noooooo) that tonight's gonna be a long night,
That tonight's gonna be a long night
That's tonight's gonna be a long, long night

A feeling (Help meeeeee) that tonight's gonna be a long night,
That tonight's gonna be a long night
That's tonight's gonna be a long, long night

Tonight's the night, my kids are up
I got my coffee, gulpin' it up
They've started smashing stuff, oh my gosh
Jumpin' on my sofa...you! Get, get off!

I know that they're having a ball
I wish I could take a nap and just lose it all
I feel stressed out, I wanna go to bed
My brain starts to space out, I'm losing all control

Fill up that bottle, lots o' milk
Look at them dancing, just go to bed
They'll paint the town, never shut down
Be up all night, and then be up all day

Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it, let's do it
And do it and do it, let's go to sleep!
And do it and do it and do it, do it, do it
Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it

'Cause I gotta feeling (Oh noooooo) that tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long, long night

A feeling (Help meeeee) that tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long, long night

Tonight's the night
(Crap!)
My kids are up
(My kids are up)
I got my coffee
(Caffeine!)
Drinkin' it up
(Drinkin' it up)

Look at them smashin'
(Smashin' stuff)
Kids, oh my gosh
(Kids, oh my gosh)
Jumpin' on my sofa
(You kids!)
You better get off

Fill up that bottle
(Milk!)
Someone!
(Help me!)
Look at them dancing
(Move it, move it)
Just go to bed!

They'll paint the town
(Paint the town)
Never shut down
(Never shut down)
Be up all night
And then be up all day

Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it, let's do it
And do it and do it, let's take a nap!
And do it and do it and do it, do it, do it
Let's do it, let's do it, let's do it, do it, do it, do it

Here they come, here they go, I gotta nap
(Nap nap nap nap nap)
Easy come, easy go, someday gonna nap
(Nap nap nap nap nap)
Feel the ache, body's tired, kids don't stop
(Stop stop stop stop stop)
Round and round, up and down, around the clock
(Rock rock rock rock rock)

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday
(I'm up!)
Friday, Saturday, Saturday to Sunday
(I'm up!)
Get, get, get, get, get with me, you know what I say, say
Sleepy every day, s-s-s-sleepy every day

And I'm feelin' (Oh nooooo) that tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long, long night

I gotta feeling (Help meeeee) that tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long night
That tonight's gonna be a long, long night
(Help meeeeeeeee)
