The Lyrics

My mom complains enough, so I've complied a list of her various laments in her honor. I'm the daughter, by the way.
Do I have to change last names
Is my son too wild
Did I clean that plate
Should I reprimand my child

I tried to raise my boy
I tried to raise my girl
I tried to clean their mess
I tried to get some rest
I guess I did it wrong
That's why I wrote this song

This common mother's life
Is it for me
This common mother's life
It is for free

So, my husband took the car
Looking for sympathy
He must've forgot me
I guess that was the end
I wonder if he's dead
It's always been the same

This common mother's life
Is not for me
This common mother's life
Is not for free

American wife (American wife)
I'm living a woman's bad dream (A woman's bad dream)
You are the the worst thing I've cleaned
You are dusty, obscene (American wife)

I tried to bake some bread
I tried to use the mop
I pushed the shopping cart
But somehow I forgot
Just what I did it for
And why I swept that floor

This common mother's life
Is it for me
This common mother's life
Is it for free

Do I have to change last names
Is my son too wild
Did I clean that plate
Should I reprimand my child

American wife (American wife)
I'm living a woman's bad dream (A woman's bad dream)
You are the the worst thing I've cleaned
You are dusty, obscene (American wife)

I tried to raise my boy
I tried to raise my girl
I tried to clean their mess
I tried to get some rest
I Monitored their friends
To rules I did contend
I tried to use a mop

Do I have to change last names
Is my son too wild
Did I clean that plate
Should I reprimand my child
Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh

I'm makin' Kool-aid daily, my children drink it gaily
It spills right on my apron and I'm so unsatisfied
I drive my Chevy Venture and I'm chopping on my trencher
Yo', they tell I'm a mother and I'm so unsatisfied
I don't know a thing about it but I want to scream and shout it
'Cause I know I live without it and I'm so unsatisfied
I'm diggin' in the garden there, I never get to wash my hair
And if you are at all aware, I'm so unsatisfied
I got a husband and a 4-room house, I am the household chef
A nanny's too expensive, and a daycare we forget
A daughter and her brother and a younger boy who's five
A schnauzer and a goldfish, do you think I'm satisfied
I'm forced to withdraw from extreme points of view
The dad's a Christian, so I'm not a Jew
I'm just livin' as an American Wife
And I just realized that I'm hating my whole life

Do I have to change last names
Should I reprimand my child
Do I have to change last names
