Mr. T Video: Treat Your Mother Right, Fool!

During the 1980s, Mr. T performed a song called Treat Your Mother Right, and he did so on camera as part of a home video called Mr. T’s Be Somebody… Or Be Somebody’s Fool.

Screen capture showing Mr. T singingAfter back-up singers warm us up to a heavy synthesizer beat, Mr. T comes on stage and belts out lyrics:

M is for the moan and the miserable groan
From the pain that she felt when I was bo’n!
O is for the oven with its burnin’ heat,
Where she stood makin’ sure I had somethin’ to eat!
T is for the time that she stayed up nights,
And took my temperature when I wasn’t feeling right!
H is for the hard-earned money she spent,
To keep clothes on my back and tried to pay da rent!
E is every wrinkle I put on her face,
And every worry that I caused when I stayed out late!
The last letter, R, is that she taught me respect,
And for the room up in heaven that I know she’ll get!
