(CHORUS) Oh, such are the dreams Of the everyday housewife You see everywhere Any time of the day An everyday housewife who Gave up the good life for me The photograph album she Takes from the closet And slowly turns the page And carefully picks up The crumbling flower The first one he gave her Now withered with age She closes her eyes And touches the house dress That suddenly disappears And just for the moment She's wearing the gown That broke all their minds Back so many years (CHORUS) 3X to fade
