The Lyrics

When the phone rang Martha
Did he tell you sell cos they're going down?
Its gonna be a disaster baby
I heard it on the grapevine they're goin down
Did he tell you phone your broker today
Cos Imclone stock's been shafted by the FDA ?

Well Martha you sure did tell us
now listen hear my advice
If all you ladies wanna keep your man
Just be a Stepford Wife
Yeah you sure did tell us
How we all ought to stop our messin' around
You said get busy with some flower arrangin'
While you were keepin' busy with your insider tradin' on the Dow


all you've got to is give it up Martha
you lied Martha you lied
repeat line one
you to took us for a ride Martha a ride
repeat line 1
forget that fooolish pride Martha your pride
repeat line 1
or you'll wind up inside Martha inside

I guess domesticity just ain't so appealin'
Compared to a nice bit of insider dealin' on the Dow

Well Martha I hear what you say now
I've quit the Mother's Union
You've really shown me the way now
It's my Bloomberg subs I'll be renewin'
You sure did tell us
How we all ought to keep our feet on the ground
But I ain't gonna sit here creamin' my cuticles
While you're busy creamin' it with pharmaceuticals on the Dow

Repeat chorus

I'm gonna buy me some sexual healin'
And a nice red Mustang with my insider dealin' on the Dow

Oh please Martha - won't you just show me how...????????????????
