They say to have her hair done
Liz flies all the way to France
And Jackie's seen in a discotheques
Doin' a brand new dance
And the White
House social season should be glittering and gay
But here in Topeka the rain is a fallin'
The faucet is a drippin' and the kids are a bawlin'
One of them a toddlin' and one is a crawlin' and one's on the way
I'm glad that
Raquel Welch just signed a million dollar pact
And Debbie's out in Vegas workin' up a brand new act
While the TV's showin' Newlyweds a real fun game to play
But here in Topeka the screen door's a bangin'
The coffee's boilin' over and the wash needs a hangin'
One wants a cookie and one wants
A changin' and one's on the way
Now what was I doin' Jimmy get away
From there darn there goes the phone
Hello honey what's that you say you're bringin' a few army buddies home?
You're callin' from a bar? get away from there
No not you honey I was talkin' to the baby
Wait a minute honey the door bell
Honey could you stop at the market and
Allo? allo? well I'll be
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 buzzin'
The dog is a barkin' and the floor needs a scrubbin'
One needs a spankin' and one needs a huggin' Lord one's on the way
Oh gee I hope it ain't twins again
