You wined me and dined me
When I was your girl
Promised if I'd be your wife
You'd show me the world
But all I've seen of this old world
Is a bed and a doctor bill
I'm tearin' down your brooder house
'Cause now I've got the pill

All these years I've stayed at home
While you had all your fun
And every year that's gone by
Another baby's come
There's a gonna be some changes made
Right here on nursery hill
You've set this chicken your last time
'Cause now I've got the pill

This old maternity dress I've got
Is goin' in the garbage
The clothes I'm wearin' from now on
Won't take up so much yardage
Miniskirts, hot pants and a few little fancy frills
Yeah I'm makin' up for all those years
Since I've got the pill

I'm tired of all your crowin'
How you and your hens play
While holdin' a couple in my arms
Another's on the way
This chicken's done tore up her nest
And I'm ready to make a deal
And ya can't afford to turn it down
'Cause you know I've got the pill

This incubator is overused
Because you've kept it filled
The feelin' good comes easy now
Since I've got the pill
It's gettin' dark it's roostin' time
Tonight's too good to be real
Oh, but daddy don't you worry none
'Cause mama's got the pill
Oh, daddy don't you worry none
'Cause mama's got the pill

    General CommentWhat a stupid comment. Typical man.

    Loretta has always tackled controversial issues of the day. Here she is singing about how woman were liberated by the contraceptive pill, and how it enabled them to be more than just baby making machines.

    General CommentThis song pissed people off 40 years ago. Nowadays, we have pills that make wantonly miss their periods. I find that sort of ironic, depressing and sick. That's just my retarded opinion.

    Well, I'm a man so I don't really have any sort of standing on reproductive issues. As for the song itself, I don't know if she wrote this proclaiming the pill's greatness or if she was slamming it by being ironic.

    I don't know, I'll never know.
