People, pick up
on what I'm putting down now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Down at every
Laundromat in town now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

While they're washing
you can hear this sound now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Divorcee!

Hard to believe
that love is free now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Out on the street
with the whole family now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Hard to believe
that love is free now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Divorcee!

People, pick up
on what I'm putting down now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Down in every
Laundromat in town now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

While they're washing
you can hear this sound now

Welfare mothers
make better lovers

Divorcee!

    Song MeaningIn brief, it seems to be a put-down of the 'Free Love' concept that the hippies of the 60's promoted and practised. I think the song is saying that either the idea itself is flawed or the term and the way it promoted is, because it tends to result in unwanted pregnancies.

    Or it could just be a put-down on people who cheat, thus causing break-ups of couples and leaving the mother to rely on welfare to help raise the child.

    I don't care too much for either meaning though, being a Hippy at Heart myself! :p
