Loretta Lynn – The Pill Lyrics

You wined me and dined me when I was your girl
Promised if I’d be your wife you’d show me the world
But all I’ve seen of this old world is a bed and a doctor bill
I’m tearin’ down your brooder house cause now I’ve got the pill
All these years I’ve stayed at home while you had all your fun
And every year that’s gone by another baby’s come
There’s gonna be some changes made right here on nursery hill
You’ve set this chicken your last time cause now I’ve got the pill
This old maternity dress I’ve got is going in the garbage
The clothes I’m wearing from now on won’t take up so much yardage
Miniskirts, hot pants, and a few little fancy frills
Yeah, I’m makin’ up for all those years since I’ve got the pill
I’m tired of all your crowing, how you and your hens play
While holdin’ a couple in my arms another’s on the way
This chicken’s done tore up her nest and I’m ready to make a deal
And you can’t afford to turn it down cause you know I’ve got the pill
This incubator is overused because you’ve kept it filled
The feelin’ good comes easy now since I’ve got the pill
It’s gettin’ dark, it’s roostin’ time, tonight’s too good to be real
Oh but daddy don’t you worry none cause momma’s got the pill
Oh daddy don’t you worry none cause momma’s got the pill
