Clinton Maynard on New Day Australia Samuel’s Persiflage #7

Samuel’s Musician Of The Week

August 20th, 2006 at 07:01pm

This week the award goes to Loretta Lynn, and the feature song is “One’s On The Way”.

They say to have her hair done, Liz flies all the way to France
And Jackie’s seen in a discoteque, doin’ a brand new dance
And the White House social season should be glittering and gay

But here in Topeka, the rain is a fallin’
The faucet is a drippin’ and the kids are a bawlin’
One of them a toddlin’ and one is a crawlin’ and one’s on the way

I’m glad that Raquel Welch just signed a million dollar pact
And Debbie’s out in Vegas workin’ up a brand new act
While the TV’s showin’ Newlyweds, a real fun game to play

But here in Topeka, the screen door’s a bangin’
The coffee’s boilin’ over and the wash needs a hangin’
One wants a cookie and one wants a changin’ and one’s on the way

Now what was I doin’, Jimmy get away from there, darn there goes the phone
“Hello honey, what’s that you say, you’re bringin’ a few ole buddies home??
You’re callin’ from a bar, get away from there
No not you honey I was talkin’ to the baby, wait a minute honey the door bell..
Honey could you stop at the market and … hello … hello … well I’ll be”

The girls in New York City they all march for women’s lib
And Better Homes and Gardens shows the modern way to live
And the pill may change the world tomorrow but meanwhile today

Here in Topeka the flies are a buzzin’
The dog is a barkin’ and the floor needs a scrubbin’
One needs a spankin’ and one needs a huggin’ Lord, one’s on the way
Oh gee I hope it ain’t twins again

Samuel
