WOMANS WORK (Jodie Digney – 1992)
I say a woman’s work is never done
She’s got things to do no time for fun.
She works all day and she don’t get payed,
She’d got no time to go out and play.
There’s things to do and she don’t complain,
As soon as it’s done she starts over again.
When she wakes her man, gives him a cup of tea.
He says to her iron a shirt for me.
She makes his toast, gets out the nights roast
Gives him the mail to post.
Gives him a kiss and sends him out the door.
But has she finished – No way!…There’s still more.
She wakes her kids gets them ready for school,
Better get out their coats ‘cause the day is cool.
Then she does the washing
does the shopping
does the sweeping
and the mopping.
Well a woman’s work is never done
a woman’s always on the run.
Run, run, run, run ,run, put on those running shoes
Got those woman’s work blues.
