  • You wined me and dined me
    When I was your girl
    Promised if I'd be your wife
    You'd show me the world
    But all I've seen of this old world
    Is a bed and a doctor bill
    I'm tearin' down your brooder house
    'Cause now I've got the pill

    All these years I've stayed at home
    While you had all your fun
    And every year that's gone by
    Another baby's come
    There's a gonna be some changes made
    Right here on nursery hill
    You've set this chicken your last time
    'Cause now I've got the pill

    This old maternity dress I've got
    Is goin' in the garbage
    The clothes I'm wearin' from now on
    Won't take up so much yardage
    Miniskirts, hot pants and a few little fancy frills
    Yeah I'm makin' up for all those years
    Since I've got the pill

    I'm tired of all your crowin'
    How you and your hens play
    While holdin' a couple in my arms
    Another's on the way
    This chicken's done tore up her nest
    And I'm ready to make a deal
    And ya can't afford to turn it down
    'Cause you know I've got the pill

    This incubator is overused
    Because you've kept it filled
    The feelin' good comes easy now
    Since I've got the pill
    It's gettin' dark it's roostin' time
    Tonight's too good to be real
    Oh, but daddy don't you worry none
    'Cause mama's got the pill
    Oh, daddy don't you worry none
    'Cause mama's got the pill Writer/s: Don McHan, Loretta Lynn, T.D. Bayless
