    Default I've Been Pumping For My Baby

    Here's a song for all the pumping moms out there. Sing to the tune of I've Been Working on the Railroad:

    I've been pumping for my baby
    All his live long days
    I've been pumping for my baby
    Every day while I'm away
    Don't you hear the clock announcing
    Time to go pump again?
    Can't you hear the momma shouting
    Breastmilk, won't you flow?

    Breastmilk, won't you flow?
    Breastmilk, won't you flow?
    Breastmilk, won't you flow some more?
    Breastmilk, won't you flow?
    Breastmilk, won't you flow?
    Breastmilk, won't you flow enough?
    Some days I can pump just one ounce
    Some days the containers won't fi-i-i-ill
    Some days there's no letdown reflex
    Some days all the milk will spill
    Drip drip drippity drip
    Drip drip drippity drip-drip-drip-drip
    Drip drip drippity drip
    Dripping from the pump machine - oh yeah!
    Don't you hear the momma crying
    My little baby needs his milk!
    Can't you hear the momma shouting
    Breastmilk, won't you flow?

    Something happened to my pump parts!
    Something happened to my milk supply!
    Something happened to my baby's latch!
    Why, then, are my boobs so dry?
    Drip drip drippity drip
    Drip drip drippity drip-drip-drip-drip
    Drip drip drippity drip
    Dripping from the pump machine - oh yeah!

    Ha ha ha! I sing "I've Been Workin' on the Railroad" for my 4 year old- it's one of her bedtime songs. I wonder what she'd think if I changed all the words?
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    Thank you, all, for the feedback I composed this while pumping and felt like others can commiserate!
