The Lyrics

As a home schooling mom, my house isn't always in sterling condition...
I'm a busy homemaker
Not a big risk taker
And my house isn't always clean
I vacuum and polish
And the rooms I demolish
For my younger kid and my teen
The lawn is a mess
And it causes me some stress
Gotta even clean the Garden Gnomes
But I daydream daily
Just like Beetle Baily
That I'll get a spread in "Better Homes."

(Better Homes...) Wanna see our picture on the cover.....
(Homes.........) Wanna be the World's Number One Mother....
(Homes........) Wanna see our shining house
On the cover of Better Homes!

We gotta lotta little rene - gading ghost turds
Living all around the floor
We got some dirty plates and cups and dishes
Seems someone never did that chore
We have all kinds of spills
And dirty clothes in hills
And pawprints where the doggie roams
But the thing I desire
When the mess is dire
Is to get a spread in Better Homes!

(Better Homes...) Wanna see our picture on the cover.....
(Homes.........) Wanna be the World's Number One Mother....
(Homes........) Wanna see our shining house
On the cover of Better Homes!

(spoken) RIght on the front, man, I can see it now....awwwwwwwww, beautiful!
