    I thought I'd like to leave the black side of life for a while
    To live alone and have some fun
    So I told her to take the kids and go back to her ma
    That's how I wanted it to be and I felt satisfied it was over and done
    I wake up every morning make myself a cup of jay
    Down to the factory that's where I spend my pay
    Five o'clock the whistle blows and that leaves the evening free
    That's how I wanted it to be
    Well it didn't take me long to find out just how much I missed her
    So I wrote and told her to take the kids and come on back home
    Cause I was ready to settle down now
    Well you see I just got her letter today
    And it seems she's found someone she can depend on
    That's how I wanted it to be she ain't coming home no more
    I wake up every morning
