Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your makeup --

Em7 A7 G/B A7
Soon he will open the door.

F#m7 B7 F#m7 B7
Don't think because you've a ring on your finger

F#m7 B7 F#m7 B7
You needn't try anymore,

Bm7-5 E7 Bm7-5 E7
For wives should always be lovers, too;

C#m7-5 F#7 C#m7-5 F#7
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you,

Bm7-5 FM7 E7 E7 alt G/B A7
I'm warn - ing you...



Em7 A7 G/B A7
Day after day, there are girls at the office,

Em7 A7 G/B A7
And men will always be men;

F#m7 B7 F#m7 B7
Don't send him off with your hair still in curlers --

F#m7 B7 F#m7 B7
You may not see him again.

Bm7-5 E7 Bm7-5 E7
For wives should always be lovers, too,

C#m7-5 F#7 C#m7-5 F#7
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you;

Bm7-5 FM7 E7 E7 alt G/B A7
He's al - most here.



Em7 A7 G/B A7
Hey, little girl, better wear something pretty,

Em7 A7 G/B A7
Something you'd wear to go to the city,

F#m7 B7 F#m7 B7
And dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music,

Em7 A7 D D6
Time to get ready for love,

Em7 A7 F#m7 B7
Time to get ready, time to get ready,

Em7 A7 D D alt - D6
Time to get ready for love.
