Loretta Lynn – One’s On The Way, is a song made famous by country music singer Loretta Lynn. Originally released in 1971, the song was the title track to her 1971 album and became one of her best-known hits. It was written by Shel Silverstein.
When released in November 1971, Decca Records issued the single to record stores and radio stations under the title “Here in Topeka” (in reference to the hook line). Once the mistake was discovered, new singles were issued with the correct title. However, for years, Lynn received requests at concerts to perform “Here in Topeka.”
Loretta appeared as a guest star in episode 8 of season 3 of The Muppet Show in 1978 and sang this song alongside 5 baby Muppets.
Reached # 1 on the charts of US Hot Country Songs, on the Canadian Country Singles charts, it reached number # 1. The song was included in the studio album of One’s on the Way (Decca 1972)

Loretta Lynn – One’s On The Way lyrics

[Verse 1]
They say to have her hair done, Liz flies all the way to France
And Jackie’s seen in a discotheque doing a brand new dance
And the White House social season should be glittering and gay
But here in Topeka, the rain is a-falling
The faucet is a-dripping and the kids are a-bawling
One of them a-toddling and one is a-crawling
And one’s on the way
[Verse 2]
I’m glad that Raquel Welch just signed a million dollar pact
And Debbie’s out in Vegas, working up a brand new act
While the TV’s showing Newlyweds, a real fun game to play
But here in Topeka, the screen door’s a-banging
The coffee’s boiling over and the wash needs a-hanging
One wants a cookie and one wants a changing
And one’s on the way
[Bridge]
Now what was I doing? Jimmy, get away from there, darn, there goes the phone
Hello, honey, what’s that you say? You’re bringing a few old Army buddies home?
You’re calling from a bar? Get away from there
No, not you, honey, I was talkin’ to the baby
Wait a minute, honey, the doorbell
Honey, could you stop at the market and— hello? Hello?
Well, I’ll be
[Verse 3]
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-buzzing
The dog is a-barking and the floor needs a scrubbing
One needs a spanking and one needs a hugging
Lord, one’s on the way
[Outro]
Oh, gee, I hope it ain’t twins again
