Baby, Things Are
Going To Change
Around Here


Get out of that bed and go outside
Quit acting like you are half dead
Mow the lawn like you said you would
But before you go make up your bed.


You cannot lie around all the time
Sleeping or watching everything I do
You better straighten up and do it quick
Or I'm going to start acting just like you.


It's unfair a woman's work is never done
And a man can retire and twiddle his thumbs
So you better change and do it real quick
Or  I'm going to pitch some wild tantrums.


Wipe that silly smirk off your face
And understand I mean exactly what I say
Baby, things are going change around here
And I don't mean tomorrow, I mean today!
