Mind Map That thanks for the opportunity to collaborate on the unmusical part of our contribution to cultural commons. I love the Broadway style melody line for actors and mums to follow - so that rooms full of people can belt it proudly out.

It was a pleasure working with you! It was the first time I collaborated with a playwright, so that was extra fun. Thank you for the inspiration AND the many fabulous lines you contributed to this song!

I don’t keep a bottle - Aku tak perlu botol dot
I don’t spend a dime - Aku tak perlu membayar apapun
I just need a corner - Aku hanya memerlukan sudut
And a bit of quiet time - dan tempat yang nyaman
When my baby looks happy - Saat bayiku tampak tenang
I’m proud of my glands - aku bahagia ASIku banyak
I’m just feeding my baby — Aku hanya menyusui bayiku
Shouldn’t have to take a stand — bukan ingin berprotes
How can you tell me — dapatkah anda katakan
What to do with my body — apa yang terjadi padaku
When my body’s milk — Saat ASI
Makes my baby healthy — membuat bayiku sehat.

We will breastfeed — Kami akan menyusui.
Where we please — Dimanapun kami mau
We care more for our babies needs — Kami lebih memperhatikan kebutuhan bayi
Than for your modesty — Menyingkirkan rasa malu
If you hate seeing breasts — Jika kau tak mau melihat dadamu
In this way, look away - lihatlah jauh kedepan
Making milk is why breasts — ASI dihasilkan adalah mengapa dada
Exist in the first place — menjadi begitu penting
Just give us some space — Berikan kami sedikit kesempatan
We refuse to cower — kami bukan takut
My body makes milk — Badanku menghasilkan ASI
What’s your super power? - Apa hebatnya anda
What’s your super power? - Apa hebatnya anda

I feed in the market — Aku menyusui di pasar
I feed on the bus — aku menyusui dalam bis
I feed in the park — Aku menyusui di taman
From morning until dusk — Dari pagi hingga malam
I feed my baby — Aku menyusui bayiku
When baby is hungry — Ketika bayi tampak lapar,
Don’t stare at my breasts — jangan hanya memandang dadaku
Just let us be — Biarkan kami
When my baby looks happy — Ketika bayiku nyaman
I’m proud of my glands - Aku bangga akan ASIku
I’m just feeding my baby - Aku hanya menyusui
Shouldn’t have to take a stand - bukan ingin berprotes

This is awesome and so true love it! Great song. Have a 9 month old - and that sun up to sun down is no lie either.

And at the heart of this song is a great hook, you’ll be singing it to yourself in no-time :o)

Thank you, PZ! I was going for super-catchy, so it’s especially great to hear that you dig the hook!

Did this come from a Law that is trying to be passed??? I thought this was absolutely wonderful Kara! Loved the Uke and very much liked the Lyric. Got Milk?…lol

Thanks, Steve. Luckily, at least in the states, I don’t think a law against breastfeeding in public is being pushed (I could be wrong!). The problems for mothers is the social judgement… the general perception of breastfeeding being ‘gross’… and women having to deal with rude comments and looks.

I know about that..ButI thought I saw something on TV about that here in Tennessee…I may be wrong..Either way The song is great!

LOVE THIS!!!!! The image of breastfeeding as a super power is inspired! And there are just so many great lines (“when my baby looks happy I’m proud of my glands”. …”my body makes milk, what’s your superpower?”). The harmonies are right on! We need a rousing chorus of women joining in on this one! Bravo Kara!

Thank you, SackJo!! I’d love to hear ‘a rousing chorus of woman’ sing this… esp. on stage. :) Many of the wonder lines are from Hamish (or inspired by his play). I was pretty tickled by that superpower idea, too. :D

I can see this in a musical. You choose some off the beaten path subjects and that one reason why I love your material. Nicely done.
permalink   Kara Square Mon, Jan 16, 2012 @ 2:04 PM
Right on- that’s what it was written for! :) When Hamish said he needed a song about breastfeeding for his CC-BY play, how could I resist?? One of my big aspirations is to write songs about subjects that most folks don’t write about… so I’m really glad to hear that you enjoy them.

The song is very lovely. I liked much the xylophone, very playful and perfect for the argument. Ukelele and your voice are pleasant are always.

congratulations a lot, Kara, this concept is wonderful: Superpower. I totally agree with your clever lyrics. There is nothing wrong in breastfeeding. Technically, it’s a cute baby drinking from a breast. What is the problem? damn humans :)

Thank you! I’m glad the xylophone aided in the playfulness… I was hoping that would be the case.

Right on!
