Happy To Keep His Dinner Warm
New Rochelle, New Rochelle
That's the place where the mansion will be,
For me and the darling bright young man,
I picked out for marrying me.
He'll do well.
I can tell.
So it isn't a moment to soon
To plan on my life in New Rochelle,
The wife of my darling tycoon.
Honey, you'll be a New Rochelle. Your darling tycoon will be here in the office.
The future Mrs. Finch is in for some lonely nights.
Smitty, I'm prepared for exactly that sort of thing...
I'll be so happy to keep his dinner warm.
While he goes on work... and not work.
Happy to keep his dinner warm
'Till he comes wearily home from down town.
I'll be there,
Waiting until his mind is clear,
While he looks through me,
Right through me.
Waiting to say
Good evening dear,
What's new with you,
From down town?
I ought to be loved, by a man
To bask in a glow
Of his perfectly, understandable neglect.
I ought to belong in the aura on his frown,
Darling busy frown.
Wearing the wifely uniform
While he goes on work,
And not work.
Happy to keep his dinner warm,
'Till he comes wearily home
From down town.
