Well, I break the dishes and I burn the steak
I spilled all the coffee that I try to make
Tried to do some sewin' stuck the needle in my hand
That's how it is when the wife runs off with another man.

Monday I washed when the sun was a-shining bright
I used too much bleach an' everything came out white
This house looks like the garbage hit the fan
That's how it is when the wife runs off with another man.

TV dinner, chicken pot pie is all I've had to eat
I've lost so much weight from living on hate till my shoes don't fit my feet
But still I've got to do the best I can
That's how it is when the wife runs off with another man.

--- Instrumental ---

Tried to iron my shirt but I had the iron too hot
Now there's a hole in the back of the best dang shirt I've got
Nothing turns out right the way I planned
And that's how it is when the wife runs off with another man.

TV dinner, chicken pot pie is all I've had to eat
I've lost so much weight from living on hate till my shoes don't fit my feet
But still I've got to do the best I can
That's how it is when the wife runs off with another man.

That's how it is when the wife runs off with another man...
