song and dance

I recently had my first baby. It is a magical time for me and my husband. My parents, who live relatively close by, were elated by my son’s arrival and are very doting grandparents. My mother and I have had a very rocky history, and I was hopeful that my son could have a relationship with his grandmother, separate from my own issues with her. As she is with everything in my life, my mother is extremely overbearing. She never gives me a compliment and constantly questions and criticizes every decision I make. She is very concerned about appearances, and tries to constantly push her wishes for how to dress and feed my child, etc., on me. I accept and welcome suggestions—but my mother will force her will. She nags, belittles, and insults my decisions until I replace them with her own. She constantly interferes in our decisions. Ignoring her is impossible, as she will nag until you agree to adopt her decision. My father tells me that she is my mother, and although she is very difficult, she will not change, so I must. This has been the song and dance of my whole life. I am tired of having to be the one to roll over just because she won’t change or accept my decisions.

ここでのthe song and danceとroll overはどのような意味でしょうか?よろしくお願いします

 ここでのthe song and danceとroll overはどのような意味でしょうか?

1。song and dance は普通「大騒ぎ」と言った意味ですが、ここでは下記の3の「説明」、それも多少ごまかしの説明、という意味だと思います。

2。roll over は下記の句自動詞の2「(人が)寝返りを打つ」の延長です。

 すなわち(人から何か言われるとそれに面と向き合って反論しないで)寝返りを打って背を向けるように、(言われるままになる)、という意味です。
