Music Monday #24: Pregnant Women Are Smug

[Garfunkel and Oates]

A comedy/folk duo from Los Angeles has recently been making waves in the Internets (and probably also in real life), and you, dear readers, should not be missing out. They call themselves Garfunkel and Oats, they have an official website, a MySpace page and a YouTube Channel and you should check them out.

Garfunkel and Oates consist of Riki Lindhome (see her Wikipedia entry) – who has acted in Buffy, the Gilmore Girls, Pushing Daisies and Bones – and Kate Micucci (see her Wikipedia entry) – who is also an actress and has been in Scrubs and How I Met Your Mother.

Their songs are very sarcastic, and the one I’m picking out is “Pregnant Women Are Smug”, which goes like this:

Pregnant Women Are Smug by Garfunkel and Oates

Pregnant women are smug
Everyone knows it, nobody says it
Because they’re pregnant
Effing son of a gun
You think you’re so deep now, you give me the creeps
Now that you’re pregnant

I can’t count all the ways how
You speak in clichés now

– So, do you want a boy or girl?
– Oh, doesn’t matter as long as it’s healthy
– Really? ‘Cause I don’t feel that those two things are related. It’s not like one or the other.
– Oh, really, as long as it’s healthy.

I can’t wait to hear someone say
“Don’t care if it’s brain dead
Don’t care if it’s limbless
If it has a penis”
Pregnant women are smug
Everyone knows it, nobody says it
Because they’re pregnant

This zen world you’re enjoying
Makes you really annoying

– So, is it a boy or girl?
– Oh, we know, but we’re not telling.
– What you’re gonna name it?
– Oh, we know, but we’re not telling.
– Who’s the father?
– Oh, we know, but we’re not telling.

Bitch, I don’t really care
I was being polite, now
Since you have no life now
That you’re pregnant
You say you’re walking on air
You think that you’re glowing
But you’ve been ho’ing
And now you’re pregnant

You’re just giving birth now
You’re not Mother Earth now

– Oh my gosh, I’ve got so much going on. I got my novel published, I moved, I got married.
– Gosh, you know, everything seems so trivial now that I’m pregnant.
– Well, I also helped end gang violence in Mexico.
– You know, I can’t even remember what I did before I was pregnant. Everything else seems so meaningless.

Pregnant women are smug
Everyone knows it, nobody says it
Because they’re pregnant
Effing son of a gun
You think you’re so deep now
You give me the creeps now
Now that you’re pregnant
