The Lyrics

Just in time for Mother's Day!
When a mother's not engaged in her employment (her employment)
Or maturing matriarchal little things (little things)
Her capacity for innocent enjoyment (-cent enjoyment)
Is just as great as any off-a-spring (off-a-spring).

Our feelings we with difficulty smother (-culty smother)
When matriarchal duty's to be done (to be done)
Ah, take one consideration with another (with another)
A mother’s lot is not a happy one.

Ahhh
With matriarchal duty's to be done, to be done,
A mother's lot is not a happy one.

When the enterprising kiddie’s not a'kidding (not a'kidding)
When the cub scout isn't covered all in grime (all in grime)
He loves to flat ignore his mother’s bidding (mother’s bidding)
And leave the walls with fingerprints of slime (prints of slime).

When the kiddo's finished jumping on his mother (on his mother)
He loves to slide down stairs upon his bum (pon his bum)
Ah, take one consideration with another (with another)
A mother's lot is not a happy one.

Ahhh
With matriarchal duty's to be done, to be done,
A mother's lot is not a happy one.

Give us more Gilbert and Sullivan! (Singing to another Pirates of Penzance selection) Hail, Parody...The Wicked Art! ;D

I echo OMR, but spell Sullivan correctly so that your parody goes into the G&S database. "When my grandsons are engaged in home destroyment ..." I'll recommend this to my two daughters (each with a 5-year-old son). But you get three fives.
