Title: Scaffolder's wife
----------------
the scaffolder's wife
driving out of the yard
with a face that's as hard
as a scaffolder's bar -
when she goes into town
she might take the top down
- on the car
the quick little steps
in the stiletto boots
and the hair with the roots
she comes in as a rule
to get the nails done
and the tan for the sun
when the kids are in school
don't begrudge her the MERC
it's been nothing but work
in/and a hard life
losing her looks
over company books
- the scaffolder's wife
in the wicked old days
when they went it alone
kept the company going
on a wing and a prayer
they don't pay what they owe
when they have the cash flow
- they don't care
don't begrudge her the MERC
it's been nothing but work
in/and a hard life
losing her looks
over company books
- the scaffolder's wife
...the scaffolder's wife
