The Mammogram Song

Lyrics

Click here if you've lost your mother to breast cancer.

 

A Ma'am or a Gram - The Mammogram Song has been used as a Public Service Announcement on radio stations throughout New England, as well as having been performed at Making Strides Against Breast Cancer and Relay For Life events and at the Komen Race for the Cure.  

 

 

If you’re a lady who’s old enough for kids to call “ma’am”,

or the woman in the family we call “gram”,

 

You’ve got to take the time, and learn the rhyme,

If you’re a ma’am or a gram, say yes I am,

and get yourself a mammogram!

 

Close your eyes, make a wish, 

All it takes is a quick, squish, squish!

 

Make your appointment, it’s only five minutes to give,

And what you’ll get back is your whole life to live,

 

You’ve got to take the time, and learn the rhyme,

If you’re a ma’am or a gram, say yes I am,

and get yourself a mammogram!

 

Hold your breath, count to five,

What a joy it is to be alive!

 

Make your appointment, it’s only five minutes to give,

And what you’ll get back is your whole life to live,

 

You’ve got to take the time, and learn the rhyme,

If you’re a ma’am or a gram, say yes I am,

and get yourself a mammogram!

 

If you’re a ma’am or a gram, say yes I am,

and get yourself a mamma-, every ma’am or gramma,

get yourself a mammogram!
