LYRICS: VERSE 1
Every morning mommy fills your sippy cup
But on this morning, she did not wake up
And then you lost your favorite raincoat
F eelings rising, look out they might explode
Why doesn’t anybody care?
Roller coaster emotions are in the air
You have to cry out loud, you’re drawing quite a crowd
And daddy is pulling out his hair!
You’re having big feelings, out of control feelings, wa wa wa feelings
And you just have to let them go (Repeat)
Wa wa wa wa wa wa . . . Waaaaaaaa
Daddy realized everyone began to stare
He looked down smiled saying “U know that I care
Use your words please,” try to stay calm
Using tips from, Parenthood.com
But there’s very little he can (I can) do
Trampolines go up and down and so do you
You’re hungry and you’re tired, desire has caught on fire
And daddy is pulling out his hair
Mom: Daddy thank you for taking care of junior
Dad: Can you just give me a little space, I’m having some really tough feelings right now
Mom: I know, parenting is hard
Dad: I think I’m gonna start crying
Mom: Take a deeep breath.
Mom: That was deep.
Dad: Wa wa wa waaaaa!
Mom: If you calm down I’ll give you a cookie!
Dad: Uh, huh? A ha ha ha ha!
Mom: Is that a happy cry?
Dad: Woah, hee hee hee hee
Mom: Yes, that’s it. Good for you honey!
Dad: This is so awesome!
Mom: It is? I mean, yes, yes it is!
Dad: This is becoming the best day of my life. Big feelings!
Wa wa wa waaa! Big feelings!
