When you're good to mama

Ok, I can't figure it out. Can you?

Pam's going around singing the following ... and I think I should be afraid. What do you think?

-----------------

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

There's a lot of favors
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!

Yeah, I agree. I'm afraid.

I always thought I was good to Mama.

But I can't figure out why she's been singing about this system of reciprocity lately.

Opportunities always look bigger going than coming.

I better give the girls perspective here. You guys will never understand. (I don't think they can drum me out of the female club for giving away this one little secret.) Pam is about to ask for something. OR she is hoping you will figure out what she wants and get it for her, OR she remembers her mother singing it and it makes her feel good, OR she likes the melody. See, wasn't that easy? Just pick one. :)

**Opportunities always look bigger going than coming. **
Huh?? Oh, I understand, maybe. :u

Ok, I'll fess up.

I know why she was singing the song.

The song is featured in the movie "Chicago" ... which we saw this weekend ... and which will undoubtedly all kinds of awards. It's a cute musical, complete with dance numbers.

In the movie, the song "When you're good to mama" is sung by Queen Latifa ... who plays Mama Morton, a prison warden in the charge of a bunch of women who killed the men in their lives.

In another song, "Cell Block Tango," the women sing:

He had it coming
He had it coming
He only had himself to blame

If you'd have been there
If you'd have seen it
I betcha you would
Have done the same!

He had it coming
He had it coming

------

In the song, the women each take a turn singing about their crime:

One women killed her man for chewing gum the wrong way.

Another used arsenic to kill her husband after finding out he was Mormon, and had six wives.

A third said killing her man was an accident ... that he had just ran into her knife ... ten times ... while she was carving a chicken.

And one murderess said she and her husband broke up because of artistic differences. "He saw himself as alive and I saw him dead."

The movie "Chicago" will undoubtedly appeal more to those who enjoy singing and dancing type flicks.

But even I enjoyed it!
