(CBS News) While I have yet to experience the pleasure of marriage and parenthood myself, a lot of my friends have at this point in time. (Mom, don't harp on this right now, I'm working. Look, I'm putting myself out there, okay?) And if there is one thing they talk about often, it's the lack of sleep that comes from having a baby. Which segues perfectly into the video above of some iconic music with a slight variation that should speak (err, sing) to parents everywhere. Take a look and listen.
The tongue-in-cheek performance entitled "Ode to Sleep Deprived Parents and Terrorising Toddlers" was posted by the Sydney Philharmonia Choirs who write:
In the tradition of Carlton's Big Beer Ad, we invited our Facebook fans to change the lyrics of the iconic opening chorus of Carmina Burana to whatever they liked, and we would get the fabulous Sydney Philharmonia Choirs to sing the winning entry. We received a huge number of entries about a range of topics. Matthew Hodge's entry, an Ode to Sleep Deprived Parents and was declared the winner!
Best of all, you can still get tickets to hear this masterpiece live and loud at the Sydney Opera HouseI'm sure if you're the parent of a baby or toddler, you were probably laughing and crying while watching that one. (When you should probably be taking a nap instead.) Try your best to get some rest if you can, all you parents out there.
