Sir Mix-A-Lot and Missing Socks
PARODY: a literary or musical work in which the style of an author or work is closely imitated for comic effect or in ridicule, a feeble or ridiculous imitation
I’m a smart woman. I’m a reasonably organized housekeeper.
But, I’m stumped.
Will someone please tell me where all the “other” socks go?
My basket of one-hit-wonders is full of misfits with no sign of a mate in sight.
“Baby Got Socks”
I like matched socks and I can not lie
You other mothers can’t deny
When the laundry is done
And you’re down by one
You get miffed. You’ve had enough
Where did that sock get stuffed?
You’ve looked low and high and higher
Took a second glance in the dryer
Checked the pockets of the jeans you’re wearing
You’re mad and begin swearing
Other mothers tried to warn me
But those little socks can be so ornery
I read in Little MissMatched magazine
That unmatched socks are the thing
But, take the average mom and ask her that
She’ll tell you that look is not yet back
So, Mamas! (Yeah!) Mamas! (Yeah!)
Are you missing lots of socks? (Hell yeah!)
Take your clothes and shake ‘em! (Shake ‘em!)
Shake ’em! (Shake ‘em!)
Shake them ‘till they drop
Baby’s got socks!
