Banging my head as I write this...

Watched 'Chicago' recently. Needless to say... loved it!! And my favorite is the song done by Queen Latifah... 'When you're good to Mama'

But ugh!! stamp! stamp!roar!bang!ouch!bang!bang!.... can't get the song out of my head and it's been 2 whole days now!!!!!

btw herez the lyrics (And hey Thels' am sure you will love them or maybe you have seen the movie and you already do!! )

And now, Ladies and Gentlemen,
The keeper of the keys,
The countess of the clink
the mistress of murderers row,
Matron Mama Morton!

(Queen Latifah)
Ask any of the chickies in my pen
they'll tell you I'm the biggest mother hen.
I love them all and all of them love me
because the system works,
the system called reciprocity.

Got a little motto,
Always sees me through:
"When you're good to Mama,
Mama's good to you."

Theres a lot of favours
I'm prepared to do,
You do one for Mama,
she'll do one for you.

They say that life is tit for tat,
and that's the way I live.
So I deserve a lot of tat
For what I've got to give.

Don't you know that this hand
washes that one too.
When you're good to Mama,
Mama's good to you

If you want my gravy
Pepper my Ragout
Spice it up for mama
She'll get hot for you

When they pass that basket
Folks contribute too,
You put in for Mama,
She'll put out for you

The folks at top the ladder
are the ones the world adores
So boost me up my ladder, kid
and I'll boost you up yours

Lets all stroke together
Like the princeton crew
When your stroking Mama,
Mama's stroking you

So whats the one conclusion
I could bring this number to -
When you're good to Mama,
Mama's good to you
