When I was young man
I worked on my own
You had the big chore
Of makin' a home

Now that I'm the keeper
Of all that was yours
I'm head of the family
And I'm boss of the chores

Living without you
Is a chore on its own
I understand what all you did
Now that you are gone

Sometimes it sprinkles
Sometimes it bores
When you're head of the family
And you're boss of the chores

When I lost you, darlin'
The kids lost a mom
Now it's me and the children
And there's work to be done

Look out for the babies
And I scrub all the floors
'Cause I'm head of the family
And I'm boss of the chores

Living without you
Is a chore on its own
I understand what all you did
Now that you are gone

Sometimes it sprinkles
Sometimes it bores
When you're head of the family
And you're boss of the chores

Sometimes it sprinkles
And sometimes it bores
When you're head of the family
And you're boss of the chores
