They say to have her hair done, Liz flies all the way to France And Jackie's seen in a Discotecque doin' a brand new dance And the White House social season should be glitterin' an' gay But here in Topeka the rain is a fallin' The faucet is a drippin' and the kids are a bawlin' One of 'em a toddlin' and one is a crawlin' And one's on the way
I'm glad Raquel Welch just signed a million dollar pact And Debbie's out in Vegas workin' up a brand new act While the TV's showin' newlyweds, a real fun game to play But here in Topeka, the screen door's a bangin' The coffee's boilin' over and the wash needs a hangin' One wants a cookie and one wants a changin' And one's on the way
Now what was I doin', Jimmy get away from there Darn, there goes the phone Hello honey, what's that you say You're bringin' a few old army buddies home You're callin' from a bar Get away from there, no, not you honey I was talkin' to the baby Wait a minute, honey, the door bell Honey, could you stop at the market and hello, hello Well, I'll be
The girls in New York City, they all march for women's lib And better homes and garden shows, the modern way to live And the pill may change the world tomorrow, but meanwhile, today Here in Topeka, the flies are a buzzin' The dog is a barkin' and the floor needs a scrubbin' One needs a spankin' and one needs a huggin' Lord, one's on the way
Oh gee, I hope it ain't twins, again
