I Got Four Kids

CAROLINE
I got four kids.
Four kids.
Four kids.
I got divorce!
I had to
Four kids!
Had to
get divorce!
been twenty-tow years of cleaning.
For all them years I worked and prayed.
Every day I doing laundry,
39 and still a maid.
In Nineteen-Sixty-Three!
I thought for sure by now I be
better off than this!
39 year old!
Should be somewhere
being kiss
by Nat
King
Cole.
It nineteen-sixty-three and I
I wish every afternoon I die:
cook and clean and mind that boy,
doing housework doing laundry
sixteen feet below the sea.
Thought for sure by now I be?
Someplace cooler, someplace high,
someplace where there?s something dry
don?t come from no lectric dryer,
doing something finer,
something not as meek,
as getting hit
and turning cheek;
hit! and turn the other cheek.
Hit! and turn the other cheek,
doing laundry underground
for thirty dollars every week.
Thirty dollars every week.
And I am mean and I am tough but?

WASHING MACHINE, DRYER AND CAROLINE
Thirty dollars ain?t enough.
Thirty dollars ain?t enough.

CAROLINE
Nothing happen underground
in Louisiana.
Cause there ain?t no underground
in Louisiana.
There is only
underwater.
