Testo Homework – Irving Berlin

By |

Testo della canzone Homework di Irving Berlin
Album: Miss Liberty (1949
I’m so tired of working in an office
And it’s making me blue
There is work that don’t require an office
That I’m anxious to do

Homework, I want to do homework
Instead of an office, I want to work home

Staying at home and crocheting
And meekly obeying
The guy who comes home

A cozy kitchen to be in there pitchin’
Is the thing I’m longing to do
To be there learning when a steak needs turning
And just what goes into a stew

Homework, I want to do homework
A genius who sits and plans with pots and pans at home
A genius who bakes a pie that keeps a guy at home

[2] Homework, I want to do homework
Instead of an office, I want to work home

Patching his trousers and matching
The part that keeps scratching
The guy who comes home

A table wiper who can change a diaper
Is the thing I’d like to be best
And be the master of a mustard plaster
When the cold goes down to his chest

Homework, I want to do homework
A genius who does her part so he don’t start to roam
A genius who earns her keep that makes him sleep at home
