She's got dinner on the table at seven
The kids are tucked in bed by nine-fifteen
And she's headed for a hotel at eleven
To meet a man her family's never seen.
As the elevator takes her to her lover
She thinks about his wife at home asleep
And she knows it must be painful to discover
That the man you love's not always yours to keep.
Well, she's one man's bride
And she's one man's on the side
She wonders why it takes two men
To keep her satisfied.
She's a hard workin' house-wife
Right now she's occupied
She's one man's woman
And one man's on the side
Yes, she's one man's woman
And one man's on the side.
She thinks about her husband when it's over
But she justifies her love affair somehow
She knows it can't go on like this forever
But she takes it all from day to day for now.
