QUEEN OF THE HOUSE
Recorded by Jody Miller
Words and music by Roger Miller and Mary Taylor
(E) Up every (A) day at six - (B) Bacon and (E) Eggs to fix
Four kids from (A) 1 to 4 - (B) (P) Pretty soon there'll be one more.
I got (E) four floors to (A) wax and scrub
And there's a (B) dirty old (E) ring in the tub
I'll get a maid some-(A) day
But, til then, I'm (B) (P) Queen of the House. (E)
No time to fix my hair - Need a new dress to wear
Old clothes will have to do - 'Cause the kids all need new shoes.
I got bridge club each Tuesday night
He's goes out with the boys and gets tight
But when the evenin's through
He comes a-home to the Queen of the House.
Change to F:
I know the (F) milkman, the iceman, they (Bb) come every day
(C) They give me tips on the (F) horses to play
And when I've got the (Bb) time to spare
I (C) sit (P) and wish I'd that I'd picked a rich millionaire.
(F) Up every (Bb) day at six - (C) Bacon and (F) Eggs to fix
Four kids from (Bb) 1 to 4 - (C) (P) Pretty soon there'll be one more.
I got (F) four floors to (Bb) wax and scrub
And there's a (C) dirty old (F) ring in the tub
I'll get a maid some-(Bb) day
But, til then, I'm (C) (P) Queen of the House. (F)
Repeat chorus and fade.
