“Stacy’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne from Welcome Interstate Managers
Stacy’s mom’s the best. Stacy’s mom’s the prettiest. Stacy’s mom says I’m her favorite guest.
My mom is the worst. My mom is a mess. My mom says I owe her because I nursed.
Stacy’s mom lets us stay up late. Stacy’s mom gives us sweet snacks. Stacy’s mom thinks my favorite cartoon is great.
My mom is always saying it’s time for bed. My mom makes me at broccoli. My mom says my shows hurt her head.
Stacy’s mom sings so well. Stacy’s mom dancing so fun. Stacy’s mom never says I can’t ring their bell.
My mom can’t carry a tune. My mom never dances. My mom says if I make that sound again, she’ll leave me in a sand dune.
But Stacy’s mom doesn’t know how to tuck me in right. Stacy’s mom never blows on my cuts so they don’t hurt anymore. Stacy’s mom doesn’t even own a nightlight.
I guess that means my mom is ok. I guess that means my mom is more than fine. I guess that means my mom is my mom for a reason, hey?
I think I’ll keep my mom. I don’t think I’m trade in. I think, maybe, for mom I should shake my pom-pom.
I can still visit Stacy’s mom a lot. I can still get her hugs. But I’ll try to remember how much I love the mom I’ve got.
