  • Tired, tired, dog ass tired
    Tired down to the bone
    I've did a forty hour week
    At the Quik-E-Mart
    And another thirty-five at home

    Dead, dead, the walking dead
    Dead right on my feet
    I like to put on my pajama and go to bed
    But no one in the house would eat

    If I go to work
    I have to makeup my whole face
    And if once a month I wanna shoot the whole damn place
    Well I just have to deal
    If I bring home the bacon
    I have to fry it up in a pan
    I ain't saying that it's easier to be a man
    But let's get real
    When we get drunk
    We do it in heels

    Dirty, dirty
    My house is so dirty
    I've forgotten what it looked like clean
    It's so sad that my husband went blind and can't see
    The dishes sitting there in the sink

    Loving, loving
    He'd like a little loving
    And I'd like to fulfill his dreams
    But right now I'm so tired
    Him fixing that oven
    Is the sexier thing to me

    If I go to work
    I have to makeup my whole face
    And if once a month
    I wanna shoot the whole damn place
    Well I just have to deal
    If I bring home the bacon
    I have to fry it up in a pan
    I ain't saying that it's easier to be a man
    But let's get real
    When we get drunk
    We do it in heels

    Yeah, they might be in style
    But until you've walked that mile
    You'll never know how hard it is
    To keep yourself from falling
    When you're up there
    And you're carrying it all and

    On the tightrope of my life
    The men and the babies
    And the 9 to 5
    I might've looked sexy
    While I'm juggling
    But I'm struggling

    If we go to work
    We have to makeup our whole face
    And if once a month
    We wanna shoot the whole damn place
    Well we just have to
    If I bring home the bacon
    I have to fry it up in a pan
    I ain't saying that it's easier to be a man
    But let's get real
    When we get drunk
    We do it in
    Five-inch platform Louboutin's stilleto pumps
    We do it, we do it in heels Writer/s: BRANDY CLARK, JENNIFER NETTLES
