video  "Mr. Mom" by Lonestar (Richie McDonald/Ron Harbin/Don Pfrimmer)

1st Verse

Lost my job, came home mad
Got a hug and a kiss, and 'that's too bad'
She said, 'I can go to work until you find another job'
I thought, I like the sound of that
Watch TV and take long naps
Go from a hard workin' dad to bein' Mr. Mom


Pampers melt in a Maytag dryer
Crayons go up one drawer higher
Rewind Barney for the fifteenth time
Breakfast at six, naps at nine
There's bubble gum in the baby's hair
Sweet potatoes in my lazy chair
Been crazy all day long
(Been crazy all day long)
And it's only Monday
Mr. Mom

2nd Verse

Football, soccer, and ballet
Squeeze in Scouts and PTA
And there's that grocery list she left for me
That's seven pages long
How much smoke can one stove make
The kids won't eat my charcoal cake
It's more than any man can take
Bein' Mr. Mom, well

(Repeat Chorus)


Before I fall in bed tonight
If the dog didn't eat the classifieds
I'm gonna look one more time, 'cause


Balancin' checkbooks, jugglin' bills
Thought there was nothin' to it
Baby, know I know how you feel
What I don't know is how you do it
