The kids are tucked in bed by nine-fifteen
And sheâ€™s headed for a hotel at eleven
To meet a man her familyâ€™s never seen.
As the elevator takes her to her lover
She thinks about his wife at home asleep
And she knows it must be painful to discover
That the man you loveâ€™s not always yours to keep.
Well, sheâ€™s one manâ€™s bride
And sheâ€™s one manâ€™s on the side
She wonders why it takes two men
To keep her satisfied.
Sheâ€™s a hard workinâ€™ house-wife
Right now sheâ€™s occupied
Sheâ€™s one manâ€™s woman
And one manâ€™s on the side
Yes, sheâ€™s one manâ€™s woman
And one manâ€™s on the side.
She thinks about her husband when itâ€™s over
But she justifies her love affair somehow
She knows it canâ€™t go on like this forever
