Lyrics

Well I'm a housewife and mother, with just one life to live
Yeah, I'm a housewife and mother, seems all I do is give
Well, I don't like to be a complainer
But my life is unchallenging, a real no-brainer
Yeah, I'm a housewife and mother, with just one life to live

Well I'm here all day long, and all my children are gone
Yeah I'm here all day long, I need a magic wand
Cooking, cleaning, dusting, laundry, doing dishes
Vacuuming, watching soaps, and making wishes
Yeah I', here all day long, and all my children are gone

Well I'm thinkin' about all the days of our lives
Yeah I'm thinking about all the millions of wives
Stuck at home, an endless succession
Of thankless days, drudgery, and depression
Yeah, I'm thinkin' about all the days of our lives

Well I'm stuck right here as the world turns
Yeah I'm stuck right here, when will I ever learn?
Fairy Godmothers are a fantasy
If anything's happening it's up to me
Yeah I'm stuck right here as the world turns

Well I'm tired all the time, maybe it's menopause
Yeah I'm tired all the time, maybe that's the cause
Hot flashes, mem'ry loss, it's a riddle
Why I'm not a patient at Gen'ral Hospital
Well I'm tired all the time, maybe it's menopause

Well I'm a housewife and mother, I've got the housewife's blues
Yeah I'm a housewife and mother, I've got the housewife's blues
Ohhhh...
