In honor of the upcoming holiday and to fulfill my Spin Cycle assignment, I am reposting this video as my gift to each of you mothers out there. I know, I know, I shouldn't have, but you are worth it, my friends.
And when this song is cycling through your head for the weeks to come, just think of me and Mr. T and how much we value the role of mothers. Because really, nothing says "respect your momma" like Mr. T in tight short shorts and covered in gold chains, right?
Here are the lyrics in case you can't make them out. They are totally classic and I promise that the chorus will be ringing through your head for days.
Treat her rightTreat your mother rightTreat her rightTreat her rightMr. T’s chorus:MotherThere is no other like MotherSo treat Her rightMother I always Love Her, my MotherSo treat Her right, treat Her rightM is for the moan, and the miserable groan from the pain that she felt when I was born O is for the oven with it's burnin' heat where she stood makin' sure I had something to eatT is for the time that she stayed up at night and took my temperature when I wasn't feelin' rightH is for the hard earned money she spent to keep clothes on my back and try to pay da' rentE is every wrinkle I put on Her face and every worry that I caused when I stayed out lateThe last letter R is that She taught me Respect and for the room up in Heaven that I know She'll getShe's a QueenSecond to noneTake care of MotherYou only get one
