the wife lyrics – john loudermilk

recitation:
here’s a little song that i wrote the other night,
in a little beer hall down on the corner.
it’s about one of my favorite people…

verse:
i’ve got a girl who’ll love me more than life
i’ve got a girl who’ll love me more than life
i’ve got a girl who’s closer than a brother
she’s my little young un’s mother, she’s the wife

well, drink up, boys
let’s have a little toast to the queenie of our life
you can’t do with ’em and you can’t do without ’em
so here’s to the wife

army stories and navy jokes sound trite
army stories and navy jokes sound trite
navy jokes can’t make me laugh
’cause in my wallet there’s a photograph – of the wife

well, drink up, boys . . .

wine and women and song, that’s alright
yeah, wine and women and song, that’s alright
well, it’s alright when you’re single and free
but you’re in trouble if you’re like me – and got the wife

well, drink up, boys . . .
