I need a wife
Someone to organise my life
To sort out bills
Clean round the loo
Someone to do the shopping too ...
Someone who remembers when term ends
When homework's due
Someone who sends..
Completed forms and makes dates to play
Who never forgets an inset day
Someone to manage groups and clubs
Gymnastics, swimming, judo, cubs
Washing, drying, washing again
Darks and delicates, whites and then...
Someone who can quickly find
The one sock that got left behind
Someone to stem the tide of mess
Sew on badges, hem a dress
Hoover the house, get filing done
Speak to the bank
Make homework "fun"
The kids' shoes are missing
And chaos is rife
I just have to face it
I need a wife!
