Just got to thinking tonight: has any artist ever written a CF song? There are lots of songs out there about kids, and even more about the actual process of making them, but I‘ve never heard of a song about remaining CF. Prove me wrong, please!

Doubtful, but there's a short little song by Fountains of Wayne called "Yours and Mine" that comes close. It just talks about a couple sharing a bottle of wine in the evening, then reading the paper together and watching TV in the morning. It always seemed so blissful to me, a description of a perfect, two-person relationship.

I don't know of any. But I've always wanted to write a child free musical. Lol

I'll get started on the title: You And Me And No Baby Makes Childfree.

Hell, here's the opening number (lots of razzmatazz):

Got no diapers! Got no crying!
No runny-nose-wipers, we're not buying
That "It's All Worth It" - well, it's not to me!
Just you and me and no baby makes childfreeeeeeeee!

What was the god-frigging-awful Charlene song from the 80's - "I've Never Been To Me'. Ugh. I guess that's a childfree song, and it makes me gag.

Look up the lyrics - it's all about someone who was too busy having an amazing life to have kids, and now is all boo-hoo-hoo to some mombie.

Puke.

I love that Charlene song! It's my shameful karaoke favourite. ;)

But yes, not quite the happily childfree sentiment we espouse here.
