HONEY DO BLUES
From work I got home, and felt the blues comin on,
When my wife gave me her list of honey do's.
She said the cow got out this mornin,and
Busted down the fence, the microwave don't work
I think it blew a fuse.
I'm gettin those honey do blues,
Overworked and confused,
That honey do list get's bigger everyday
I'm puttin in long hours,it ain't all hearts and flowers,
All this work is leavin little time to play
Cause those honey do's keep gettin in my way.
She said a snake got in the woodshed,
It's scarin me to death, and there's somthing
clogging up the kitchen sink.
The cat has turned the screen door
Into a scratching post, and our big screen television's
On the blink.
So before you start complaining dear'
Let's get a few things straight, when it comes
to hard work, I'm no stranger. The house is clean
From top to bottom,talk about honey do's I got em
So don't go feelin like you're the lone ranger.
Like to birds of a feather if we just work together,
We can tacle these responsibilities, and maybe
Find the time, for some candlelight and wine'and
Other social activities.
We've got those honey do blues
overworked and confused,
That honey do list get's bigger everday.
We're puttin in long hours,
It ain't all hearts and flowers.
All this work is leavin little time to play,
Cause those honey do's keep gettin in our way
tag Yeah those honey do's keep gettin in our way.
