A Trio. Three Women.


It’s Monday morning
And here I go again.
I can’t remember the last time
I slept in.
The alarm clock rings.
I rub my eyes.
I’m already late
But that’s no surprise.
Oh, in my dreams I am the picture of control.
Then I wake up and out of bed I roll.

Gotta pick an outfit that looks great.
Gotta roll my hair so it’s not straight.
Gotta do my crunches and my squats.
Gotta give the puppy dog his shots.

Gotta see a chiropractor soon.
Got a birthday coming up in June.
Gotta pick up groceries for tonight.
Gotta keep the finish line in sight.

Gotta make a list of all the people I need to call today.
Got about a week until my roots take over and I’m completely gray.

Gotta eat my breakfast on the run.
Gotta make sure everything gets done
Before I lose my mind.
Before I lose my mind.

Gotta use the tweezers on my brow.
Never had to pluck them until now.
Gotta send an email to my dad.
Gotta buy a brand new mattress pad.

Gotta plan that trip to Terra Haute.
Gotta read that book my girlfriend wrote.
Gotta smile and tell her it was good.
Gotta lie the way a girlfriend shout.

Gotta sort through all the stacks of paper that pile up in the den.
Gotta tell my husband not to wear those pants with that awful shirt again.

Gotta get this package in the mail.
Gotta find a minute to exhale.
Before I lose my mind.
Before I lose my mind.

Oh, God, what I wouldn’t give to throw it all away!
Oh, God, even I am bored with me today!

Gotta start to pay my bills online.
Gotta put the treadmill on incline.
Wanna pour myself a glass of wine.
Wanna say that everything is fine.
Everything is fine.
Everything is fine.
Everything is fine.
It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine.
It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s all fine!

Can’t afford to overlook a thing.
Do you think my husband had a fling?

Gotta be alluring and demure.
Gotta be both youthful and mature.
Gotta keep the fire of romance lit.
Gotta rise above this stupid shit!

Gotta make sure no one thinks that I can’t handle it all in stride.
Gotta be the perfect debutante. Perfect mom. Perfect bride.
Gotta start recycling all our trash.
Gotta keep a stash of petty cash.
For when I lose my mind.
For when I lose my mind.

Gotta call my broker before noon.
Wanna book a ticket to Cancun.
Gotta find a decent-fitting bra.
Wanna spend a weekend at a spa.
Gotta keep abreast of local news.
Wanna buy a pair of Jimmy Choos.
Gotta make sure dinner isn’t bland.
Wanna get back to the life I planned…
The life I planned…
Before I lose my mind!

I’m gonna lose my mind.
