Theme Week! Woman Songs!


Women:
Confused about your role in society?  
Curious about your place in the home?  
Perplexed by all the choices in the workplace?  
Wondering what it is that makes your man take an extra helping from another woman's casserole while he leaves yours virtually untouched?

Men: 
Confused by the intricacies of relationships? 
Bewildered by the changing moods of women?  
Wondering why she didn't love that nice broom and dustpan set you gave her for your last anniversary?

Betty and a host of other celebrities are here to help you out.

This week we'll revisit some of those songs that remind us what women are all about, what they think about, and all the sacrifices they make.  

Our first video is a salute to that hard-working gal out there who is currently sitting at her kitchen table, using a ragged fingernail to dislodge a piece of dried cheese off a sharp knife, and waging a war of resentment and hostility on the slob that left it there, the same slob that leaves the bathroom a mess and does not seem to even notice that she is wasting away in this hell hole of a house that no one else even seems to care about.  

Brush your hair and put some lipstick on, dear!  
This little song is a big THANK YOU!  from the man in your life. 

Just as Glen says at the beginning of the video, "For the Girls."  

Ohhh.  Thanks, Glen.



She looks in the mirror and stares at the wrinkles that weren't there yesterday
And thinks of the young man that she almost married
What would he think if he saw her this way?

She picks up her apron in little girl-fashion as something comes into her mind
Slowly starts dancing remembering her girlhood
And all of the boys she had waiting in line

Oh, such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me

The photograph album she takes from the closet and slowly turns the page
And carefully picks up the crumbling flower
The first one he gave her now withered with age

She closes her eyes and touches the house dress that suddenly disappears
And just for the moment she's wearing the gown
That broke all their minds back so many years

Oh, such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me

Oh, such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me

Oh, such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere any time of the day
An everyday housewife

I used to mindlessly sing this tune in my dad's car while he played Glen Campbell records. I can't believe these lyrics now!

I used to listen to the sing and think it was SO romantic! Oh my gosh!
