The Shoe Shoppin' Blues

My trip to Target with the kids today inspired the song writer in me...so humor me and sing along! Be sure to scroll way down and click pause on my playlist first! :)
.....READY?

(To be sung in the style of Babysittin’ Blues from the movie Adventures in Babysitting from the late 80’s…sing “da DA da da da” between each line for the full effect! I’ll get ya started…)

da DA da da da
Took the kids to the store…
Had to buy ‘em some shoes…
Hoped it’d be quick and painless…
But now I feel so abused…

da DA da da da
Got some icees and popcorn…
That was dumb on my part…
Thought it would distract ‘em…
But it got all over the floor and my cart…

(Build up to the chorus)
And it’s so hard…baby, baby
Shoppin’ with the kiddos…oh yeah.
I’ve got the….shoe shoppin’,
Shoe Shoppin’ Blues, baby, baby…
Yeah…The Shoe Shoppin’ Blues..

da DA da da da
Noah is climbing…
Right out of his seat…
Abby‘s sitting in the basket…
I’m trying shoes on her feet…

da DA da da da
Need to call in some back-up…
Need Dad to bring in some force…
To get our boy back in his seat….
But Daddy can’t ‘cuz he’s on the golf course….

Ahhhhhhhh! (James Brown style)
I’ve got the…shoe shoppin’…
Shoe Shoppin’ Blues…oh yeah, that’s right.
(Back-up singers…)
She’s got the…shoe shoppin’
Shoe Shoppin’ Blues, baby, baby…the Shooooooe Shoppin’ Blues.


At least we got out of there with a few pairs of shoes...my kids have grown out of everything!

Shopping with kids is so NOT fun. I always leave sweaty, flustered, and ready to scream. I vowed I'd never be the kind of mom that makes a scene in the store, but as a mom myself, I've gone back on my word a few times.

Nice song! Oh the good times that we have as mothers! I'm sorry that your shoe trip was so crazy but at least you accomplished actually getting some shoes which is more than I can say for some of our trips! Just about a week until we arrive. Sam and I are so excited! Love ya!

Way cute Kelli...seriously love it. I am picturing you on stage swinging your hips while you sing. By the way, so glad you're my new visiting teacher! I was feeling bummed when Joanna Bosen told me she wasn't anymore, but everything is ok now. :)

Oh I love it. Such talent, you should write songs for all mothers out there. Sounds just like us. Thanks for letting me know about it.
