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]
