WHEN THE WIFE AND KIDDIES ARE AWAY
BY JIM MANEE
I am a lonely bachelor man, though I have a wife and two
Of the sweetest little youngsters that to kid days ever grew;
I am cooking every meal I eat, and believe me I'm no cook;
Why, even when I fry an egg I'm referring to a book.
I am learning how to make a bed, just how to spread a sheet,
I should worry 'bout the inside clothes if the outside quilt looks neat.
In the morning for my breakfast I have coffee and a crust,
The coffee's three days old or more the bread is full of dust
There-is sour milk in the pantry and OH! the icebox smell,
The parlor's full of house-Ays, the flys are f ull of ...
It's not so bad iD daytimes, but when I get home at. night '
The house looks mighty lonesome, it's pitch dark, there's not a light.
And I've got to stand it two weeks, while mother and the kids
Are vacating in the country, with the cows and katydids.
I'm glad to have 'em on the farm, in the open air and free,
But all the same, these two long weeks can't pass too soon for me.
I wan't a really truly meal, I wan't some real home life,
I want the little youngsters and, BY GOSH, I want my wife.
