People, pick up
On what I'm puttin' down now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

Down at every
Laundromat in town now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

While they're washin'
You can hear this sound now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

Divorcee!

Hard to believe
That love is free now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

Out on the street
With the whole family now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

Hard to believe
That love is free now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

Divorcee!

People, pick up
On what I'm puttin' down now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

Down in every
Laundromat in town now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

While they're washin'
You can hear this sound now

Welfare mothers
Make better lovers

Divorcee!
