"Barren Egg" as written by and Robin Eaton Jill Sobule....
Another barren egg, another month gone by
Just more time to do as I please
No one watching over me
I don't have to make my bed I can lay in it instead
With no one there to bother me
'Cause I'm free it's just me

Another friend got caught
Another friend knocked up
Another friend with nothing in common with me
Another night with you
Spending time with you
I'm still alone 'cause you're the freest man I've ever known

I'm free just me
I'm free nobody but me
I'm free save me

Free as the snow as it melts away
Free as the wind on a real calm day
Free as the moth on my window pane
Like you, kinda like me

Another barren egg another year gone by
Just more time to do as I please
No one's tugging at my sleeve
I can be as rude as I please
No one's going to fire me
Floating in this endless sea

I'm free just me
I'm free nobody but me
I'm free save me

    General CommentI think this song is about this woman's period being a reminder that she has no husband or children. "Another barren egg" being another unfertilized egg being eliminated.

    Lyric Correction"Another friend knocked out" should be "Another friend knocked up."
