It’s no surprise Adele’s “Hello” has been skyrocketing up the charts, with numerous parodies already doing the rounds. 

This one, however, seems to be striking chords with mothers the world over, with it’s cheeky references to maths homework, pinot noir and reaching out to her sisterhood for support.

“Hello. It’s me. I would love to grab a glass of wine and maybe a grilled cheese, but I got kids I have to feed. I got one in volleyball and one who’s coming home with Ds,” she begins.

Watch it here:

Meet Singer-songwriter Emily Mills, who’s penned a spoof parody about the stresses of everyday motherhood and her desire for a pinot noir, striking a chord with the wine lovers amongst us all in her hysterical parody, “Hello from the Motherside.”

Hello, it’s me. 

I would love to grab a glass of wine and maybe some cheese

But I’ve got kids I have to feed

I’ve got one in volleyball and one who’s coming home with D’s

Why can’t she get this, fraction business

I can’t take it anymore… 

Hello from the motherside

I must have called a thousand times

to tell her this homework is really breaking my heart

But when I try it clearly doesn’t tear her apart anymore.

Hello, mama how’ve you been

I can tell you’ve been stress eating from the Cheetos on your hands

It’s okay, you need a win

You’ve been plucking facial whiskers 

and your thighs touch skin to skin…

Hello from the motherside

I think I might break down and cry

Cause I love my children, but I don’t want any more

can somebody pass me the pinot noir…

Some of our favourites include:

Emily hilariously struggles to finish her daughter’s maths assignment, while belting out, “Hello from the motherside. I must’ve tried a thousand times to tell her this homework is really breaking my heart.”

Then comes her preference for red wine, singing, “Hello from the motherside. I think I might break down and cry, because I love my children but I don’t want any more. Can somebody pass me the pinot noir?”
