Bobby Bare – That's How I Wanted It To Be lyrics

I thought I'd like to lead the bachelor life for a while
Live alone and have some fun
So I told her to take the kids and go back to her mama
(That's how I wanted it to be) and I felt satisfied it was done
I wake up every morning make myself a cup of Jay
Down to the factory that's where I spend my day
Five o'clock the whistle blows and that leaves the evening free
That's how I wanted it to be

Well it didn't take me long to find out just how much I needed her
So I wrote and told her to take the kids
And come on back home cause I was ready to settle down now
Well you see I just got her letter today
And it seems she's found someone else someone she can depend on
(That's how I wanted it to be) and she ain't comin' home no more
I wake up every morning...
That's how I wanted it to be
