By dean friedman

I wanna have a big backyard.
I wanna have a mailbox and swings.
I wanna have a welcome mat and a porcelain cat,
And a doorbell that rings.
I wanna have a burglar alarm
To keep my family from harm,

I wanna be marginal middle class,
I wanna be respectable middle class,
I wanna hire a kid to cut the grass,
I wanna be marginal middle class.

I wanna join the local lodge.
I wanna have a two car garage.
I wanna do a high school play with the p.t.a.
I wanna have a new dodge.
I wanna have a steady job.
I wanna eat corn on the cob.

I wanna be marginal middle class,
I wanna be respectable middle class,
I wanna hedge my bets, I wanna cover my ass,
I wanna be marginal middle class.

I don't wanna have a lot of dough,
I just wanna be your average joe.
I wanna have just enough to see an occasional broadway show.

I wanna have a swimming pool.
I wanna have a couple of kids.
I wanna have a motorbike and a dog named mike
And two guinea pigs.
I wanna have a library card.
I don't wanna have to work too hard.

I wanna be "honey, can we eat out tonight ? " middle class,
I wanna be "daddy, roger punched me on the nose." middle class,
I wanna live right near the overpass,
I wanna be marginal middle class.
I wanna be marginal middle class.
