  • All my friends are raisin' babies
    I'm still raisin' Cain
    They must think because I've waited that I don't want the same
    Their days are spent changin' diapers
    They think mine are so exciting
    Runnin' off to where the light are so much brighter

    It's an empty room at the top of the stairs
    Watchin' the evening news with a couple of beers
    I only call my husband baby because I love the word
    Never wanted something so bad that it hurts
    Even give up these damned old cigarettes
    If I could have a bottle by my bed

    My only bedtime story is a People magazine
    I'd rather be in a carpool lane than this big cold limousine
    I'd trade every pair of high heel shoes for a high chair in the dining room
    Don't even know you yet but I know I love you

    It's an empty room at the top of the stairs
    Watchin' the evening news with a couple of beers
    I only call my husband baby because I love the word
    Never wanted something so bad that it hurts
    Even give up these damned old cigarettes
    If I could have a bottle by my bed

    We wait, we wait
    It'll be our turn someday

    Spend a lot of afternoons daydreamin' 'bout you
    Right now our mortgage is the only thing that's due

    It's an empty room at the top of the stairs
    Watchin' the evening news with a couple of beers
    I only call my husband baby because I love the word
    Never wanted something so bad that it hurts
    Even give up these damned old cigarettes
    If I could have a bottle by my bed

    We wait
