Sandra - Dusty Springfield

She's a great little housewife

 

Though sometimes she talks like a fool

 

But she helps at the store in the holiday rush

 

And she picks up the kids after school

 

And she puts down the phone

 

When her husband comes home

 

And she changes from mother to wife

 

Till she feels the words hanging between them

 

And she hangs by her words to her life

 

She says "I swear I love my husband

 

I love my kids

 

I wanted to be like my mother

 

But if I hadn't done it as soon as I did

Oh there might have been time to be me for myself for myself

 

So many things that she wishes

 

She don't even know what she's missing

 

And that's how she knows that she missed

 

She's a sweetheart except when she's moody

It's hard to get through to her then

 

Depressed for a while when the youngest was born

 

Ah but that happens now and again

 

Ah she might take a drink with the housework

 

Or when Michael's kept late at the shop

 

A martini or two before dinner

 

But she always knows when to stop

 

She says "I swear I love my husband

 

And I love my kids

 

Though I wanted to be like my mother

 

But if I hadn't done it as soon as I did

Oh there might have been time to be me for myself for myself

 

So many things that she wishes

 

She don't even know what she's missing

 

And that's how she knows that she missed

 

Oh they used to hold hands at the movies

 

Now it's seldom if ever they go

 

Once you pay for the sitter and parking the car

 

There's no money left for the show

 

She was doing the dishes

 

When a glass fell and broke on the tile

 

And she cut her wrist quite by mistake

 

It was real touch and go for a while

 

She says "Oh God I love my husband

 

And I love my kids

 

Well I wanted to be like my mother

 

But if I hadn't done it as soon as I did

Oh there might have been time to be me for myself for myself

 

So many things that she wishes

 

She don't even know what she's missing

 

And that's how she knows that she missed
