You are the original template 
You are the original exemplary 
How seen were you actually? 
How revered were you honestly at the time? 

Why pleased with your low maintenance? 
You loved us more than we could've loved you back 
Where was your ally, your partner in feminine crime? 

Oh, mother who's your buddy? 
Oh, mother who's got your back? 
The heart of the house 
The heart of the house 
All hail the goddess

You were good, oh
You were "count on her 'til four AM" 
You saw me run from the house 
In the snow melodramatically 

Oh, mother who's your sister 
Oh, mother who's your friend? 
The heart of the house 
The heart of that house 
All hail the goddess

We left the men and we went for a walk in the Gatineaus 
And talked like women like women to women would 
Women to women would 
Where did you get that from? 
Must've been your father, your dad
I got it from you, I got it from you 

Do you see yourself in my gypsy garage sale ways? 
In my fits of laughter? 
In my Tinkerbell tendencies? 
In my lack of color coordination?
