"What I Need" as written by and Gary Eaton Amy Rigby....
Timmy's in the tub taking too much time

Mary's on the couch with a nursery rhyme

Who's that man knocking at the door?

We've never seen him before

We're not tired, can't we stay up late

Timmy's stomach aches from something he ate

Better sit down in the rocking chair

Gotta get the gum out of Mary's hair

Sometimes it's so hard to be alone



What I need

What I need

What I need

For you to disappear

But still be here

When he goes home



I was a kid when I married your dad

Things were good, then things went bad

Now Timmy's having fits cause his homework's wet

Mary just screams til her needs get met

The place is quiet now it's twenty past ten

There's laundry on the bed, let's sit in the den

Gee it's real nice to kiss your mouth

But if this doesn't feel right

Could you sleep on the couch?

Sometimes it's so hard to be alone



What I need

What I need

What I need

For you to disappear

But still be here

When he goes home
