Raise Your Shirt

Cry, cry! He’s hungry again.

Feel a let down kickin’ in,

Pop my nursing bra,

Bring my baby to my chest -

Then let him do all of the rest.

His eyes say, “Thank you, Ma.”


Lower risks of female cancer

Baby’s best immune enhancer.

Trims the tummy, saves you money.

Let’s get serious!


So raise your shirt if you are proud

To feed your baby

Just like Nature meant.

We will never be, never be

Anything but strong

And loving mothers -

All you nursing Moms!

Won't you come on and come on and

Raise your shirt!

Just come on and come on and

Raise your shirt!


Why, why do they always try

To keep us hidden from the public eye?

Just get over it! (Get over it already)

I’ve got state and federal rights

To feed my little one in plain sight.

Dude, it’s just a tit. (Hello!)

Oh man, I leaked on my shirt...

that sucks!


Now we know, “Breast is best.”

They put it to the test.

You could choose to supplement

We can always, we can always

Pump to boost supply....


So raise your (Ow! Don’t bite Mommy.)

For them.

Just come on and come on and

Raise your shirt... for them.

  1. This is fabulous!!! I sang along as I read it and it's spot on!!!!
    These 2 parts were hilarious: "Oh man, I leaked on my shirt... that sucks!" and "So raise your (Ow! Don’t bite Mommy.)"

    I loved the video to this song (for obvious reasons) ;)

  4. She's a breastfeeding and animal advocate. Part of that music video had women being pumped to feed a baby cow as a statement about all that. Maybe she would record this! Haha.

  5. Love just my size bras 1960! Very comfortable, flattering fit and shaping and easy access for nursing. Seems to run a bit large but not terribly.
