I'd like to say my mouth is clean
that no ones ever heard me scream
four letter not to be repeated
when there are days I'm quite defeated
and out slip words I didn't mean!

Yes I'm a mother with toil and strife,
But beneath it all I'm also a wife.
I must nurture him too,
'Cause when this gig is through,
I'll be with the man all of my life!
