LOVE YOUR MAN (A Good Wife’s Guide)

AUNTY ANNIE & LOUISE’S MOTHER :

« You will love your man… You need to keep the house clean, Louise.

You will love your man… Learn to be a good cook, Louise.

Well… You will love your man… Tease, Please. Be happy. Louise.

Oh… You will love your man… Do not talk. He’s yer boss, Louise. »

 

NARRATOR :

She was born in Van Horn in 1941

A place that her mum did adorn

Where she felt at ease

Louise fell in love with a guy from downtown

Married at 16

No baby yet

So Aunty Annie and Mummy said :

 

AUNTY ANNIE & LOUISE’S MOTHER :

« You will love your man… Learn to be a good cook. Louise.

You will love your man… You need to keep the house clean. Louise.

Oh… You will love your man… Tease, Please. Be happy. Louise.

Oh… You will love your man… Do not talk. He’s the boss. Louise. Louise. »

« You’ve been alone

You’ve been alone

Too long, you shirk your obligations. Louise

Have a son, Oh oh

Have your son

Be a good wife

Be a good wife

 

NARRATOR :

As far as Louise can see (Be a good wife… Be a good wife)

All her dreams have been broken, violently (Oh oh… Be a good wife… Be a good wife)

 

As far as Louise can see

All her dreams have been broken, violently .

 

Drop the bottle

Stop boozing Louise,
