The Lament Of Every Housewife.

The Lament Of Every Housewife.

As I look in the mirror I realize,
I’m not looking for the likeness of me,
I’m just looking for spots on the surface,
And I’m trying not to leave any streaks,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,

As I stand in the doorway with tears in my eyes,
From the laundry piling up in the hall,
It’s just one more way to remind me,
The insignificance of it all,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,

And now it’s time for me and nobody else,
For nobody knows the hurt that I’ve held,
And I hunger… for life,
That’s the lament of every housewife,

Shoppin’ and lookin’ for bargains,
Pinchin’ pennies that I wish would be there,
Going to parties and sittin’ alone,
For the lack of something to share,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,

I’m the only one who sees what I’m doin’,
And it makes me wanna sit down and cry,
I don’t mind at all clippin’ coupons,
I just wish I didn’t have the time,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,

And now it’s time for me and nobody else,
For nobody knows the hurt that I’ve held,
And I hunger… for life,

O’, and I don’t wanna watch the t.v.,
Lord, I’ve seen every Sesame Street,
Mr. Rogers, get your butt out o’ my neighborhood,
I want nothing so familiar to me,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,
Oo’, o’-o’… oo’, o’-o’,

And now it’s time for me and nobody else,
For nobody knows the hurt that I’ve held,
And I hunger… for life,
Yeah, I hunger… for my life,
That’s the lament of every housewife.
