The Lyrics To Adam Sandler's Mother's Day Song:
Turn out the lights single mama
Mother's Day is here
Put away those diapers pretty darling
Take off that girdle and brassiere
The kids are fast asleep pretty mama
Time for the adults to get naughty
You look so hot in that terry cloth robe
Let it fall to the ground. Oh, Lordy!
'Cause I'm your Single Mother's Day present, baby
And I can go all night long
Not once, not twice but three times baby
Then I'll sing you my turkey song...
Backup Singers: Turkey lurky doo...
Adam: I'll do it for you....
Backup Singers: Turkey lurky dee
Adam: Take a big bite out of me!
Backup Singers: Turkey lurky dactic...
Adam: I'll make sure to wear a prophlatic.
Backup Singers: Turkey lurky lie...
Adam: Sammy Davis Jr. only had one eye
Backup Singers: Doo doo wah la...
Adam: Happy Mother's Day!
