Mail order brides, turtlenecks, and trophy wives,
Had the ways and means to breach,
The borders of easy street,

And to blend right in,
We all surrounded them in a white picket fence,
Now both ends meet,

Sufficed to say there's a time and a place,
So I wait,
For the tug-of-war and who you'll pull for,
While between you and me from point A to point be is a fine line,
That burns at both our good ends,

Two peas in a pod, a battle axe, and a bastard child,
