Molly turns the light on as she turns the alarm off
she rails against her daughter's fits and gives the kid a cuff
'Cause she's late to catch her bus and Mommy's had enough of her precocious wit today
Molly backs into the house to wipe her face off of the dirt
She forgets to eat her breakfast so she passes out at work
Now the secretaries look at her as though she needs the fat sucked from her head
until she's cold and limp and dead
and just as pleased as peaches

Tuck your heart away
You won't be needing it today
We hate to say it
but you're bound to break it
if you don't take special care

Missed call
Damn it all
Have you any life insurance?
Cut-backs!
Where's the kid?
Have you any wool?
Mamma Mommy Mother dearest don't send me to private school I promise promise I'll do better Daddy won't cheat anymore
Come now, come now
give the girl a promise Molly
Come now, come now
give the girl your word
Ha-ha-ha-ha-Have you any life insurance?
Ha-ha-ha-ha-Have you any wool?
Poor old Molly's off her trolly (day in, day out)
Poor old Molly's gone right round the bend

Molly's husband crawls to dinner inspecting his lover's work
His left hand holds a looking glass, the other's in the lurch
Picking up and throwing plates, demanding Molly get a face-lift for his forty-fifth birthday
She'd better let the baby have its way
Or he'll be sore as sure as sugar

Molly turns to switch the light off as she puts the water on
and the leaves left in her cup tell her that life's bound to go on
Then she lays her head down, counting sheep, and dreaming about getting hers some day

Tuck your heart away
You won't be needing it today
We hate to say it
but you're bound to break it
if you don't take special care
You can hide it anywhere
or you can just forget it
