To Be A Better Wife, Indian Lockdown Song Lyrics

I’ve written ‘To Be A Better Wife’ to the tune of ‘Here There and Everywhere’, a song composed and written by the Beatles. I’m publishing the lyrics here, as they aren’t very clear in the video I recorded on my cellphone.

Stay home. Stay Safe. And do your share of the chores,
