The Lyrics

Wives talkin'
Yellin' 'bout their guys, yeah.
Wives talkin'
About all their lies.
Wives talkin'
In the neighborhood, yeah.
Wives talkin'
For men, this ain't good.

"He's a child
And doesn't know
The meaning of 'clean.'
Such a child,
So out of touch--
He just talks about engines and machines."

With all this wife talkin'
'Bout their smelly guys, yeah.

"Food loving--
Swills pretzels, and pies."

"Can't believe anything they say.
They think that jive talkin'
Will get them their way."

"They think love
Means just wood."

"Beating on his tool
When I say, 'no.'"

"Can't match pants and ties--
Frequently lookin'
Like a dumptruck fool."

With all these

"Lugs talkin'--
All they do is whine, yeah."

Wives talkin'--
Then later, online. . . .
