It’s 8 o’clock Monday morning;
I’m already feeling half-dead.
The kids are running riot;
There’s a ton of washing hanging over my head.
I can’t take it any longer:
I’m going straight back to bed.
What am I gonna do with these bedraggled housewife blues?

The old man’s off his rocker.
He’s gonna rant and rave for days.
His boss gave him the boot, now.
He’s in an alcoholic haze.
We’re gonna be on the streets soon.
Now I need any job that pays.
What am I gonna do with these bedraggled housewife blues?

So I’m heading to Aussie for good.
I’ll send a postcard from the plane.
That’s what I’m gonna do with these bedraggled housewife blues.
