interesting song, A bit bluesy but really more of a folk song from my opinion, . Its strength I think comes from the story told. feels authentic. Its performed well and the recording is pretty good.

    - Barry Osbourn

Cute and unique. Good for a chuckle!

Lyrics

Well the church needs a preacher, Preacher needs a wife
Can she play piano? Not on your life!
They're only calling him, but they're really getting two
That's why I'm singing the preacher's wife blues

Life in the fishbowl, that's the one for me
The windows of the parsonage are dirty as can be
I'll get around to cleanin' when I'm finished dustin' pews
That's why I'm singing the preacher's wife blues CHORUS

Chorus: Well you tell me "Get a life". Hey, I got one, sugar plum
Life is kinda cool in our aquarium!

Well, preacher's wife advantages are piled in a heap
I really like my hand-me-downs; I know they weren't cheap
In fact, I've got a dress that looks marvelous on you
That's why I'm singin' the preacher's wife blues. CHORUS

Now I really dig the vittles parishoners donate
I stewed the frozen bunny, and the collard greens, we ate
But when they brought the okra, mmmmmmm, my husband, he refused!
That's why I'm singin' the preacher's wife blues. CHORUS

Well, my kids are nearly perfect; They never do a sin!
that's why we're the model of family discipline.
Do you wanna know a secret? We lose it just like you.
That's why I'm singin' the preacher's wife blues. CHORUS

Well I get up in the mornin'; I'm prayin' for the flock
You say you got a problem? I'll listen to you talk.
I may not know psychology, but, honey, I know you!
That's why I'm singin' the preacher's wife blues.

Bridge Chorus: When the Lord called him, I know he called me, too
I'll iron all his shirts 'cause that's what I wanna do
And I'll listen to his sermons, pat him on the back
and when we both get tired, well I guess we'll hit the sack

You know I ain't complainin' when we're moved by Providence
I'm really good at packing with all my experience
I can find a hundred boxes, but I can't bear leaving you...
That's why I'm singin' the preachers wife blues.

I'm in love with my preacher! I'll stick to him like glue
even when I'm singin' the preacher's wife blues.
Life in the fishbowl....
