lyrics

In my washing up bowl,
The suds catch the light,
Glitter like crystal in underground grottos,
The waves lap the shore of my sink evermore..

The music from my radio
Drifts in and out, and to and fro
And mingles with the mundane thoughts in my head
About dinner and errands to run,
Wishing I'd only had one bun,
Yearning for romance and a little bit of drunken fun.

But who is there to care
About the life of a housewife?
David Attenborough's not there,
Filming the secret life of a housewife.

At the dinner table
I spray a glistening mist
Onto a dirty old j-cloth and wipe it,
All the crusty old bits of yesterday's dinner.

I used to be beautiful and kind,
So easy to please, so easy to be with,
But now my life isn't mine,
And all the unresolved longings are buried inside,
So I moan and I whine,
And I whine and I moan.
