Love Yourself
by Feldiken

24/7 you work to do what your family needs
Makin’ money, feeding tummies, being funny, chummy buddies
There’s no pay and no way you can ever get enough sleep
You can close your eyes in the grocery line, but you’re still up thinking ’bout your kids at night

Time to be tender; you’re doing well
Time to surrender and scream for help
Time to remember to love yourself
Can’t love them true, if you don’t love you

Dad and Mom, you’re the bomb, so let’s explode it
Rewind, blow up this grind of unrecognized overtime
Partner up, just enough, so you control it
Pay your way and give you breaks, 8-hour days, four-week vacas

You need to do this with everyone else
100 assistants to give you help
Right now this instant, just love yourself
Bringing up those boys and girls is the biggest work in the whole wide world

When your children are at war with you
it’s just that they want some more of you
They would each like twenty-four of you
And if they grew, this is what they would say to you

Take good care, so you’re there when we get older
Remember to love your health,
cause your health means more than you can tell
Live real wild, so we smile as we get closer
Live life with all your powers, cause your life means as much as ours

Time to be tender; you’re doing well
Time to surrender and scream for help
Time to remember to love yourself
Love yourself
Love yourself
Love yourself
