Mommy Can't Make Us Happy

Lately, the Price Tag song video (be it the original of Jessie J and others who sang it) has been filling the eight (4 for the ground floor, 4 for the second floor, LOL!) corners of our house. The song is played in different forms: desktop, laptop, television and cellular phones.

Yesterday, as I fold the clothes from the last day's laundry, I overheard Juancho singing Price Tag with a twist and naughtiness for he was trying to get my attention to leave the clothes and breastfeed him (awww, still breastfeeding at 5 years and 5 months!) When is he going to stop?

Juan: (Singing) Why is everybody so obsessed? Mommy can't buy us happiness...
Julia: (Butt in, a bit annoyed with Juan). Mommy can't buy you happiness, but Mommy can make you happy!
Rafael: Yes, Mommy can make us happy by her love and kisses, and her yummy cooking (I added this up to boost my new found likeness for cooking, visit my new blog )

Here's my most favorite Price Tag version, from a very talented girl, Maddie Jane

Price Tag
Jessie J

Seems like everybody's got a price,
I wonder how they sleep at night.
When the tale comes first,
And the truth comes second,
Just stop, for a minute and

Why is everybody so serious!
Acting so damn mysterious
You got your shades on your eyes
And your heels so high
That you can't even have a good time.

Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right (ha)
Can you feel that (yeah)
Well pay them with love tonight...

It's not about the money, money, money
We don't need your money, money, money
We just wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag

Ain't about the (ha) Ka-Ching Ka-Ching.
Ain't about the (yeah) Ba-Bling Ba-Bling
Wanna make the world dance,
Forget about the Price Tag.

[Verse 2: Jessie J]
We need to take it back in time,
When music made us all UNITE!
And it wasn't low blows and video Hoes,
Am I the only one gettin... tired?

Why is everybody so obsessed?
Money can't buy us happiness
Can we all slow down and enjoy right now
Guarantee we'll be feelin
All right.

Everybody look to their left (yeah)
Everybody look to their right (ha)
Can you feel that (yeah)
Well pay them with love tonight...


[Verse 3: B.o.B]
Yeah yeah
Well, keep the price tag
And take the cash back
Just give me six streams and a half stack
And you can keep the cars
Leave me the garage
And all I...
Yes all I need are keys and garage
And guess what, in 30 seconds I'm leaving to Mars
Yes we leaving across these undefeatable odds
It's like this man, you can't put a price on life
We do this for the love so we fight and sacrifice every night
So we ain't gonna stumble and fall never
Waiting to see, a sign of defeat uh uh
So we gonna keep everyone moving there feet
So bring back the beat and everybody sing
It's not about...

[Chorus x2]

[Outro: Jessie J]
Yeah yeah
Forget about the price tag
