Good For The Soul

I didn’t start my singin’ career, down at Northrock drinkin’ beer.
Had a child to raise and a house to clean – worked two jobs in between.
I was such a shy little mouse - I stayed home and cleaned my house.
Turned on my radio; sang along with Sheryl Crow!

Chorus

Momma likes to rock and roll; it’s good good good for the soul,
Momma likes to rock and roll; it’s good good good for the soul.

I had to get my laundry done; Alan Jackson helped me some;
Had a child to raise and a house to clean – worked two jobs in between.
Shania helped me fold each sheet - And now my house is oh so neat.
I dreamed that it would last, as I listened to Rascal Flatts

Chorus

I had to get my dishes done, cos if I don’t the ants will come.
Had a child to raise and a house to clean – worked two jobs in between.
Down on my knees adoin chores; how I hate to scrub those floors!
I’m a Cinderella girl, in a Madonna world.

Chorus

I could have become addicted to work; or drink or drugs or otherwise hurt,
Had a child to raise, and a house to clean, worked two jobs in between.
I was such a shy little mouse – ‘til one day I heard Alison Kraus….!
Picked up my guitar; now I’m gonna be a star!

Chorus

So if you want a singin’ career: don’t spend your time adrinkin’ beer,
Got a child to raise and a house to clean? you work two jobs in between?
Never mind a man, never mind a tan – you got beds to make, & cakes to bake!
Honey, turn your Hoover on; and belt it out over Elton John!

Chorus
