Wife’s Lament

I was feeling a little silly today, so after working hard to get up out of my recliner, I decided to channel it into this old kiddie’s song.  You can sing along if you like!!

Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
You’ve been sitting too long in your chair

You promised to help me clean up the dishes
You promised to help me clean up the dishes
You promised to help me clean up the dishes
But you’ve been sitting too long in your chair

Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
You’ve been sitting too long in your chair

You promised to run the big vacuum cleaner
You promised to run the big vacuum cleaner
You promised to run the big vacuum cleaner
But you’ve been sitting too long in the chair

Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
You’ve been sitting too long in your chair

You promised to take me Belk’s to go shopping
You promised to take me Belk’s to go shopping
You promised to take me Belk’s to go shopping
To buy me a pair of new shoes
Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
Oh dear, what can the matter be
Your butt’s been too long in your chair

A rewrite of the old Kiddie’s Song – Oh Dear, What Can the Matter Be

If your in a silly mood you can add a few verses of your own!

  1. Ha! I can relate. Watching someone wile away the hours in a recliner when there are chores and errands at hand can get frustrating. Did you do your re-write before or after the chores?
