Mad Dad
9 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the He's a Mad Dad, He's a Mother song/skit? It was our favorite as parents of two kids! It begins with "Me and my posse go to work just so we can feed you jerks - with a chorus of "he's a mad dad, he's a mother" Don't know what to say for the other lines that I need to write!
