HOST: @wacha

Pulled this title out of my stock from the Titular Muse. I was debating on which direction to take it. I decided to keep it on the tame side, but may go back for a "wilder" rewrite later. We just take for granted that the majority of child and homecare is done by women. No one blinks if the man of the house wants to catch the game with his fellas (because he needs some time to himself, amirite?), but a woman taking time for herself to socialize? SCANDAL!! At least she can get equality in this song.

Lyrics: 

VERSE 1
Up before dawn
Feed the kids then pack their lunch
Getting dressed and out the door
Always a time crunch
Off to work and school
Music lessons, swim class at the pool
Blink and it's dinnertime
Homework, bath, in bed by nine

PRE-CHORUS
This daily rat race has become a marathon
This mother needs to get her groove on

CHORUS
I'm a reckless feelin' mama
Out for a night of fun
Trading in these sweatpants
Flip-flops and messy bun
For big hair and red lips
Tight jeans showing off my hips
I'm a reckless feelin' mama
On the run

VERSE 2
I need this girls night out
Need to dance and laugh
Need a cold glass of sangria
Nah - better make it a carafe
Karaoke calls my name
Sing loud and proud
Without an ounce of shame
Not leaving til last call
Cuz we're having a ball

PRE-CHORUS and CHORUS

BRIDGE
I know that come tomorrow
My body will bring sorrow
A whole night of drinking
What the hell was I thinking
But a fierce hangover and aching feet
Small price to pay for the sweet treat
Of hanging with my friends
Thank God for the weekends

PRE-CHORUS
This daily rat race has become a marathon
This mother needs to get her groove on

CHORUS
I'm a reckless feelin' mama
Out for a night of fun
Trading in these sweatpants
Flip-flops and messy bun
For big hair and red lips
Tight jeans showing off my hips
I'm a reckless feelin' mama
On the run

Super relatable with such fun lines! The hazard feeling is a little like my recent song, but you have lots of details about what you're going to do. Fabulous!

Brilliant writing from a busy mana perspective. Lovely take on the prompt.

You've got me feeling stressed out just from reading the narrator's tale. This gal needs a night out for sure. I like how you get the listener to be in the scene with your lyric writing.

Ha! This could be a great anthem for moms everywhere. Details are spot on and chorus sings off the page. I definitely relate to the work/school week marathon!
