wives and lovers lyrics – dionne warwick

wives and lovers
(originally by jack jones)

hey, little girl
comb your hair, fix your make-up
soon he will open the door
don’t think because
there’s a ring on your finger
you needn’t try any more

for wives should always be lovers, too
run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
i’m warning you

day after day
there are girls at the office
and men will always be men
don’t send him off
with your hair still in curlers
you may not see him again

for wives should always be lovers, too
run to his arms the moment he comes home to you
he’s almost here

hey, little girl
better wear something pretty
something you’d wear to go to the city
and dim all the lights
pour the wine, start the music
time to get ready for love

oh, time to get ready,
time to get ready
time to get ready
for love.
