Video Games

Lyrics by Mama Del Roy
Music by Lana Del Rey

You haven’t seen our backyard
Don’t make me stop this car
Callin’ out my name
“Mom get me a root beer,
bring it over here
I’m playing video games”

Hurry up and get dressed
You’re makin’ Mama real stressed
Take your body down those stairs
You’re gonna miss your school bus
I’m not drivin’ your ass
Put your friction’ back pack on
Stop playing video games

It’s you It’s you It’s all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Mommy gave up sushi to give birth to you
Tell me all the things you want me to do
Get up off your butt and do some of it for yourself
Better than I ever even knew
They say motherhood is a job for two
Totally worth doing if somebody don’t walk all over you
And baby now you do

Bring home your report card
Cringin’ at the C mark
Shiftin’ all the blame
Gobblin’ your food down
So you can go on Facebook
And play video games

I hold him in my Mom arms
“Uck Mom you’re so bizarre”
This is all I get now, huh?

Watch you and your friends brawl
Eatin’ til the food’s gone
This is your idea of fun
And playing video games

It’s you It’s you It’s all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Mommy gave up sushi to give birth to you
You tell me all the things you want me to do
Get up off your butt and do some of it for yourself
Better than I ever even knew
They say motherhood is a job for two
Totally worth living in a world outside your room
And baby now you do
