Menopause Is a Bitch: Menopau-sing-a-long


Donna Maysack’s back! Because I thought I’d just let her write this blog from now on.  Just kidding. But she writes some dang funny song parodies and I got such a kick out of this one, I thought I’d record it and it covers a subject that has begun to plague me as much as it’s probably plaguing a number of you: menopause. And if it isn’t, here’s a peek at what to look forward to. You’re welcome

Uh…you might notice my voice got a bit lower. Damn hormonies…


Walkin’ in circles, can’t find my car
Must need some brain pills, didn’t think that I parked this far
I can’t remember, having a hot flash too
No one to help me, all by myself
Haulin’ the groceries, puttin’ them high up on the shelf
I’m aggravated, steppin’ in dog shit too
Estrogen’s dropping, flipping a switch
One minute smiling, the next, I’m a bitch
I’m menopausal, give me some chocolate too…
Got used to kickin’ my sagging tits
Shaved off my beard, then I read about shrinking…
Hormones a ragin’, blaming it all on you!

Thanks Donna!

    I officially hate menopause. I also hated that film in 6th grade that we were forced to see called “It’s Wonderful to be a Girl” – yikes! That should be removed from all curriculums.

      Cathy, They should replace it with Linda’s videos. She can really express all the wonders.
