    Lyrics

    (Chris Gantry)

    She looks in the mirror and stares at the wrinkles
    That weren't there yesterday
    And thinks of the young man that she almost married
    What would he think if he saw her this way
    She holds up her apron in little girl fashion.

    As something comes into her mind
    Then slowly starts dancin' remembering her girlhood
    And all of the boys she had waiting in line.

    Oh, such are the dreams of the ev'ryday housewife
    You see ev'rywhere anytime of the day
    Like the ev'ryday housewife that gave up the good life for me.

    --- Instrumental ---

    The photograph album she takes from the closet.

    And slowly turns the first page
    And carefully picks up the crumbling flower
    The first one he gave her now withered with age
    She closes her eyes and touches the housedress.

    That suddenly disappears
    And just for a moment she's wearing the gown
    That broke all their minds back so many years.

    Oh, such are the dreams of the ev'ryday housewife
    You see ev'rywhere anytime of the day
    Like the ev'ryday housewife that gave up the good life for me...
