My Mother's Day gift to you

In honor of the upcoming holiday and to fulfill my Spin Cycle assignment, I am reposting this video as my gift to each of you mothers out there. I know, I know, I shouldn't have, but you are worth it, my friends.

And when this song is cycling through your head for the weeks to come, just think of me and Mr. T and how much we value the role of mothers. Because really, nothing says "respect your momma" like Mr. T in tight short shorts and covered in gold chains, right?

Here are the lyrics in case you can't make them out. They are totally classic and I promise that the chorus will be ringing through your head for days.

Treat her right  
Treat your mother right  
Treat her right  
Treat her right 
Mr. T’s chorus:
There is no other  like Mother  
So treat Her right  
Mother  I always Love Her,  my Mother  
So treat Her right, treat Her right   
M  is for the moan, and the miserable groan  from the pain that she felt when I was born  O is for the oven with it's burnin' heat  where she stood makin' sure I had something to eat  
T is for the time that she stayed up at night  and took my temperature when I wasn't feelin' right  
H is for the hard earned money she spent  to keep clothes on my back and try to pay da' rent  
E is every wrinkle I put on Her face  and every worry that I caused when I stayed out late  
The last letter R is that She taught me Respect and for the room up in Heaven that I know She'll get 
She's a Queen  
Second to none  
Take care of Mother  
You only get one

I couldn't see the video but the lyrics are great! If I had to repay my mom for every wrinkle on her face, I would pro-rate every one of them with my sister, because this was no 50/50, she was clearly the proximate cause! You're linked!

Can't argue with Mr. T.

Happy Day After Mother's Day. :)
