Musical Monday: Red Hot Mama Song

Musical Monday: Red Hot Mama Song

A number of years ago I was in New York with my good friend Karen Giblin, founder of Red Hot Mamas. We were doing a satellite interview series on menopause. You go to a television studio, in this case it was in New York, early in the morning. Every hour you are interviewed by several television stations in a different time zone, so you appear on the morning news across the entire nation from the same location.


After three hours of interviews, we were having a cup of coffee and she mentioned to me that she thought I should write a song about “Red Hot Mamas.” So on the airplane from New York to Boston, I grabbed a napkin and took out my pen and wrote the words to the song Red Hot Mama on the back of that napkin. My goal was a sexy, sassy, fun song about menopause.


A short time later I went into the recording studio with Ben Schwendener on piano and Joanie Pimentel on vocals and we recorded the song, Red Hot Mama. Click Here to listen.

Lyrics for Red Hot Mama Song

I’m a red hot mama

From my head to my feat

Sassy and Brassy

Sexy and Sweet

Come a little closer..

Pssst…feel my heat.


I’m a red hot mama

I like to exercise

Toning up my tummy

Shaping my thighs

Men still looking at me

And I look at guys.



I’m good at conversations and I’m very good in bed

I know I got some wrinkles but I still can turn a head

I’m through with making babies, now I’m making love instead

Just because I’m in the ‘pause doesn’t mean I’m dead


I’m a red hot mama

Who likes the company of men

But now I drink my tonic

with a splash of estrogen

I may be getting older

but now I’m wiser than then
