alabama



He rattles his glass, she jumps up fast
And pours him a glass of tea
Deep in her heart she believes
That's the way it should be
And I've seen my dad get fighting mad
Over one little four letter word
He'll tell you fast, you don't talk like that
Around her

We may not see it the way they see it
We may not do it the way they do it
But she lives her life for him and he'd gladly die for her
And even in this modern age, it works

Though he's down in his back, he still jumps out of that sack
Every morning at 5:00 a.m.
But having her home with the kids
Has been worth it to him
And she takes pride in being his wife
And making their house a home
Sometimes she wishes the world would just
Leave them alone

We may not see it the way they see it
We may not do it the way they do it
But she lives her life for him and he'd gladly die for her
And even in this modern age, it works

If the good lord's willing
There will come a day
When our children will say

We may not see it the way they see it
We may not do it the way they do it
But she lives her life for him and he'd gladly die for her
And even in this modern age, it works

And even in this modern age, it works
