Well I ain't proud of what I'm about to do
All alone up here with you
With the picture of your man
Face down upon the night stand, so he can't see
And I don't like running all the red lights here 
Every time the coast is clear
Any time you need my lovin'
You know I'll come running, faithfully

Cause he stays so busy with his money
And you, you get so lonely when he's gone 
And me, I'm just your temporary lover
'Til your blues are gone
I'm the man of the house whenever he ain't home

Now the statues on the side of that big gate 
They're laughing as I drive away
And I can't keep from thinking
Are they laughing at your old man or at me 
And the only part that I don't like to play
Is the part when I get up and go away
I find it mighty hard
Just keeping this old heart tucked away
Cause he stays


I'm the man of the house
When your other man ain't home
