Housewife’s Lament

this is also copyright; most of the verses, with deletions and shifts for singability, are in rise up singing. Other versions of this have a traditional melody which is sung faster and is more cheerful. I personally think my melody supports the words better, but as is always the case your mileage may vary wildly from mine.

John and Paul and I used to stand together and sing this in three part harmony.

I really really miss John.
