lyrics

I'm just a homebody, using my time
Caring for baby and walking the line
Chasing the tasks from a roundabout list
Then turning to something i've missed
An eye on the housework, an ear on a tune
Washing up dishes and planning a ruse
In a weird, wonderful way
I don't miss earning a wage
An unknown company slave
Now works for his babe

I'm just a homebody, and in the town
The hair dresser says there's not many around
To playgrounds and pools and to parents we roam
Each second i'm lucky to know
The laundry is endless, the nappies, the same
To love and be love is the noblest game

In a weird, wonderful way
I don't miss earning a wage
An unknown company slave
Now works for his babe

An eye on the housework, an ear on a tune
Washing up dishes and planning a ruse
In a Weird, Wonderful Way
I don't miss earning a wage
An unknown company slave
Now works for his babe
