Dreams Of The Everyday Housewife

This song is by Glen Campbell and appears on the album Wichita Lineman (1968).

This song has been covered by…
She looks in the mirror and stares at the wrinkles
That weren't there yesterday
And thinks of the young man that she almost married
What would he think if he saw her this way
She picks up her apron in little girl fashion as
Something comes into her mind
Then slowly starts dancing remembering her girlhood
And all of the boys she had waiting in line

Ah such are the dreams of the everyday housewife
You see everywhere anytime of the day
An everyday housewife who gave up the good life for me

The photograph album she takes from the closet and
Slowly turns the page
And carefully picks up the crumbling flower
The first one he gave her now withered with age
She closes her eyes and touches the house dress
That suddenly disappears
And just for a moment she's wearing the gown
That broke all their minds back so many years

Ah such are the dreams...

Ah such are the dreams...

Ah such are the dreams...
