gecko Lyr Req: The Alphabet Song variations (101* d) Lyr Add: HOUSEWIVES' ALPHABET SONG 27 Mar 05

OKTHEN Just in case you haven't found these lyrics yet:

A is for altar where we go astray
B for the bills that begin the next day
C is for cuffs and collars of shirts
And D is for dishes and dusting and dirt
E is my energy draining away
F for the floors to be swept every day
G is for girlhood all gawky and gone
And high fed-up housewife that's singing this song.

Ch:        Wearily, it's merely a good woman's day
        Cooking and cleaning and tidying away
        If ever you've finished, remember that when
        You wake up tommorrow, it all starts again.

I is for ironing for kids in their teens
Jerseys and jumpers and acres of jeans
K is for kitchen where year upon end
I've lived there with pot lids and ladles for friends
M is for mending, there's mile upon mile
N is for nappies in a big stinking pile
O for the odd job, the odd job or two
Like pushing the pram or unplugging the loo


Q is for quarreling of chicks in my nest
R is for referree and a ten minute rest
S is for shopping in sun, snow or rain
And T for that toilet - it's stopped up again
U is for undies all grimy and soiled
V for those things that we peel, chop and boil
W for woman and washing-machine
We both need attention - you know what I mean!


We've got no union, it's eight days a week
Crammed into seven - I'm out on my feet
So much to do - where should I begin
But I've got half me lifetime to finish it in
W for wings, if I had them I'd fly
X marks the spot where I sit down and cry
Y that's yours truly, I've gone on too long
And so has this system and so has this song


We do it in three part harmony and it always gets cheers from the women in the audience.
Yours in Unity
