Baby Got Class: Christmas Jammies Family Have A New Song - For Back To School

'Baby Got Class' Family turn Sir Mix-A-Lot 'Baby Got Back' into back to school anthem

'I like big buses and I cannot lie.'

The Holderness family, known for their viral #Xmas Jammies rap video, are back with a new parody song about sending kids back to school.

Parents Kim and Penn have cleverly subverted the lyrics of Sir Mix-A-Lot's Baby Got Back to create a song about the struggles of back to school preparations.

As anyone familiar with Sir Mix-A-Lot's ode to the female figure will be aware, the song's original innuendo laden lyrics are not exactly child friendly; with lines about 'Anacondas' likely to elicit some awkward questions from young listeners.

There is even an episode of Friends that focuses on how inappropriate the catchy ditty is for children. In an episode called 'The One With Ross' Inappropriate Song', Rachel is disgusted to learn that the first thing that has made baby Emma laugh is Ross serenading her with Baby Got Back.

But the Holderness family have ingeniously transformed the suggestive lyrics into more wholesome lines, like:

"I like them round and big...

... Back packs for my kids."

"So fellas

Yeah!

Fellas.

Yeah!

Does your mum make a healthy lunch?

Oh yeah!"

"I'm down to get the fiction on."

Since being posted on YouTube three days ago ( August 19), the video has already been viewed more than a million times.

The Holderness family have explained what inspired them to create the video on their website:

"If there was one of those Facebook relationship status options for my children, at this point in August, I would choose 'needs to see other people.'"

"On both sides - we literally need to see other people. It's been an amazing summer but for our children and ourselves - we are ready for the routine the school year brings."
