Do women deserve a weekly off or do they need to pay,
For the sins of their husbands mother,
On that seventh day?
The mother who did what she thought was right,
Who never took a break.
Who was an obedient daughter-in-law, who accepted without a fight.
‘Cos she learned from her own mother,
That it was the only way.
To a stable successful family life in the years when it was her day.
But things are so very different now, and so much has changed.
Many men want their women to put up their feet,
And rest a little when they have the need.
Their mother should have had a weekly off,
She shouldn’t have had to pay.
For the sins of their father’s mother,
On every seventh day.
