I just love those ladies
So fed up with themselves
Wives well into their eighties
Who belong to someone else

When allowed to leave the house
Their husbands always drive
Proper hairdo, heels, and blouse
They wait for children to arrive.

She goes by Mrs. Clarence Fife
Lost the last name, what’s the first?
Status granted, Somebody’s Wife
‘Cause we spinsters have it worse

They don’t know why they’re bitter
Revelation seems remote
They’re just bitches with a litter
But we’re Equal; we can vote.
