The MothersÕ Day/FathersÕ Day Conundrum
Lyrics by Kate Reid, C.R. Avery, Music by Adam Popowitz

I work hard on MothersÕ Day
On that spring morning in May
Instead of one breakfast in bed
I make two

I make two MothersÕ Day cards in art class
The other kids ask me why I need
More paper, glue, paint supplies and more time
But I do
 
Chorus: 
It's a sticky situation, it's a jam, it's a pickle, it's a fix
My school assumes that I am just like the other kids
ItÕs a quite quandry, it's a possible social catastrophe
Cuz MothersÕ Day for me has a differently placed apostrophe
ItÕs a conundrum having two moms sometimes

When FathersÕ Day rolls around in June
I got nothing much to do
All the kids are making cards with trucks
And tool boxes, fishing gear and bar-b-qs

And I feel so left behind like the last one
Picked for the team at recess time
Even though IÕm a wicked athlete
I play defence on a girlsÕ hockey team

Chorus:
It's a sticky situation, it's a jam, it's a pickle, it's a fix
My school assumes that I am just like the other kids
It's a quite quandary, it's a possible social catastrophe
Cuz MothersÕ Day for me has a differently placed apostrophe
It's a conundrum having two moms sometimes

Bridge:
One of my moms is not like the other moms
She wears a tie to work and plaid shirts when sheÕs at home
She got fishing gear and she got that tool box, too

She has a shaved head, she doesnÕt wear makeup
She plays street hockey with me, we watch the game on tv
SheÕs half mom and sheÕs half dad
To me

(CR Avery)
You donÕt gotta write poetry thatÕs deep
Just keep a pen in your palm
Not to drop a bomb but life was never like it was in the sit-com
You gotta see reality tv ain't real
We're not re-inventing the real
Two sums make a whole
You got two moms then kid,
You just rock 'n' roll

So, I'm creating a FathersÕ Day card in class
The other kids ask me why I do
They look so confused when I say
She's my mom and she's my daddy, too

Chorus:
It's a sticky situationÉ..it's a jam, it's a pickle, it's a fix
My school assumes that I am just like the other kids
ItÕs a quite quandary, it's a possible social catastrophe
But I love my mom and I love my Mommydaddy, too
It's a conundrum having two moms but sometimes, you gotta make up your own rules
