Never Gonna Pick It Up – A Parody

Hello everyone, its been a while since I’ve written a parody. Due to the cold weather this week many of my parenting friends have turned to Twitter to seek solace from the ‘joys’ of having bored, restless children at home. Their tweets inspired me to finish a parody of a classic 80’s pop tune that I started many moons ago.

Never Gonna Pick It Up – A Parody

(to the tune of Rick Astleys Never Gonna Give You Up)

A drawing of an orange hand, thumb and fingers together as if picking something up

You think you’re ready for kids?
Folks say they’re cute
but its a lie!
Pint sized dictators what you’re gonna get
A little monster with such a pretty smile
They will always go on misbehaving
When you gonna understand

Never gonna pick it up
Never put their iPad down
Alway gonna run around
And ignore you

They don’t mean to make you cry
They don’t wanna hear you sigh
But they’re never gonna try
And hear you

Not been to sleep yeah, for so long
Your head is aching
but you’re too tired to say it
You’ve got a coffee that’s been going cold
They’ve got a game and you’re gonna play it
It doesn’t matter how your feeling
They’ll tell you what you’re gonna do

Never gonna pick it up
Never put their iPad down
Alway gonna run around
And ignore you

They don’t mean to make you cry
They don’t wanna hear you sigh
But they’re never gonna try
And hear you

Never gonna pick it up
Never put their iPad down
Alway gonna run around
And ignore you

They don’t mean to make you cry
Dont even wanna hear you sigh
But they’re never gonna try
And hear you

Never gonna pick, never gonna pick
(pick it up)
(Ooh) Never gonna pick, never gonna pick
(pick it up)

Not been  to sleep yeah, for so long
Your head is aching
but you’re too tired to say it
You’ve got a coffee that’s been going cold
They’ve got a game and you’re gonna play it
It doesn’t matter how your feeling
They’ll tell you what you’re gonna do

Never gonna pick it up
Never put their iPad down
Alway gonna run around
And ignore you

They don’t mean to make you cry
Dont even wanna hear you sigh
But they’re never gonna try
And hear you

Never gonna pick it up
Never put their iPad down
Alway gonna run around
And ignore you

They don’t mean to make you cry
Dont even wanna hear you sigh
But they’re never gonna try
And hear you

Never gonna pick it
Never put their iPad down
Alway gonna run around
And ignore you

They don’t mean to make you cry
Dont even wanna hear you sigh
But they’re never gonna try
And hear you

I think most parents will agree their kids can be like this at times.
