The most relatable song about parenting, EVER – the ‘Smell of You’ Ed Sheeran parody

As Ed Sheeran’s ‘Shape of you’ storms the chart, takes over the radio and get stuck in your head for days on end, one mum took it upon herself to make a clever interpretation. Parents everywhere are nodding their heads and laughing at British mum, Sophie McCartney’s take on the song, accurately summing up how most of us feel on a daily basis when looking after our little ones.

Cleverly changing the lyrics of the catchy chorus to ‘I gag at the smell of poo, and the sight of vomit too’, her parody captures the joy of toddler tantrums, hair smelling of sick and having an audience when you go to the toilet.

It turns out we’re not the only ones who laughed along to her version of Ed Sheeran’s song; with over 14 million views and 121 thousand shares in under three days.

So, sit back and enjoy and Ed, if you’re reading this, we still love your version too!
