Mummies Drinking Song (to the tune of Tub Thumping by Chumbawumba)

Hello everyone. Being a mummy is hard work. Sometimes the only thing that gets a mummy through the day is the promise of a cold glass of something at the end of the evening. When I first thought of doing an ode to the drinks that carry mummies through those early years there was really only one song that was suitable, Chumbawumba’s Tub Thumping.

So for all the mummies out there who love a glass of something in the evening this is for you.

Mummies Drinking Song

(They are singing, head is spinning)
(They are singing)

I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean

(survived a play day date, survived a play day date)

She likes a red wine drink, she likes a vodka drink
she like Prosecco drinks, a gin and tonic drink
She sing s the songs that are sung by Iggle Piggle
She sings the songs that are sung by Mr Tumble
(Oh Peppa Pig, Peppa Pig, Peppa Pig)

I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean

(survived a play day date, survived a play day date)

She likes a red wine drink, she likes a vodka drink
she like Prosecco drinks, a gin and tonic drink
She sing s the songs that are sung by Iggle Piggle
She sings the songs that are sung by Mr Tumble
(Don’t cry for me, childless neighbour)

I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean
I tidy up, they make a mess again
They ain’t never gonna leave it clean

I tidy up (they’ll be singing)
They make a mess again
They are never gonna keep it clean (my heads spinning)

I tidy up (they’ll be singing)
They make a mess again
They are never gonna keep it clean (ooh)

I tidy up (they’ll be singing)
They make a mess again (survived a play day date)
They are never gonna keep it clean (my heads spinning)

repeat till end

I think this is definitely my best parody song to date/ Would you agree?

      It actually is a song that usually makes me quite sad because it was played at a relatives funeral a couple of years ago (honestly) but this version makes me laughxx

    Great and true! I don’t drink alcohol but hot chocolate has always been my go-to drink. Any parodies on that would be awesome!

      Im not an alcohol drinker either. A parody about chocolate in all its forms would be a good idea x

    This is so funny, lol, those kids drive us to drink! LOL

    This is a favorite:
    “I tidy up, they make a mess again
    They ainโ€™t never gonna leave it clean
    I tidy up, they make a mess again
    They ainโ€™t never gonna leave it clean”

    Now that the kids are older it’s much easier to keep it clean, and they help now. But oh, do I remember stepping on toys, sweeping the mess under the couch or into a closet! LOL Those were the days!
