    When I was single I used to be afraid
    No one would ever wed me and I'd die a sour old maid
    Now I am married and (I'll send me down to weep?)
    'Cause my husband chews tobacco and he snores in his sleep

    Oh Lord, I wish I was a single girl again
    Lord, I wish I was a single girl again

    When I was single I had fellas by the score
    Now that I am married, well they don't come 'round no more
    Now I am married and my husband's such a prude
    He made me sew buttons on his flannel undersuits

    Oh Lord, I wish I was a single girl again
    Lord, I wish I was a single girl again


    When I was single, he always came to court
    He used to bring me flowers and he always was a sport
    Now I am married and well, what do you think
    He bought me an apron and he showed me to the sink?

    Oh Lord, I wish I was a single girl again
    Lord, I wish I was a single girl again


    When I was single, I was jealous as a shrew
    Of women and their babies, 'cause I wished I had one too
    Now I have a baby. She's as sweet as any rose
    But aint it aggrivatin' when you have to wipe her nose

    Oh Lord, I wish I was a single girl again
    Lord, I wish I was a single girl again

    A Touching Poem

    Dear Induslady,
    Somehow I had missed this post because it was on page 2 of 'Good To Read' Forum which I saw only today. The poem is very touching. Poetry is at is best when it hints about the dull pains and the soft sufferings of the mind. When you write a touching poem about a gruesome accident where somebody had died, it won't be that powerful. Even in this poem if you had described about a sadistic husband it would not have had the same impact. When the poem talks about snoring, and the husband giving an apron (when the wife is expecting a flower) they have a tremendous impact.
    Keep writing, Induslady. Even this poem you can dwell further and add more and more stanzas.
    Keep up the goodwork.
    love,
    varalotti,
    sridhar

    Hello Varalotti,

    Thanks for your message. However, I am not the original writer of the poem :oops:. I got to listen to this song one day in the FM radio in my car when I was driving. This song moved me a lot for it is about the kind of dreams girls have about their marriage; It is so upsetting even with smaller things that happen later in the married life that are far off their dreams.

    So I searched for the lyrics of the song on the web and posted it here thinking that many ladies like me would enjoy!

    Dear Induslady,

    You have captured what many married women secretly think.

    Just enforces my belief in the old saying: Marriage is like a fort under siege. The ones inside want to get out & the ones outside want to get in..

    Regards,

    Corallux
