Diana & the Dishes Chicago, Illinois

Track Name: He Wasn't the Only One
He always came home at six o'clock
There was dinner on the table and a smile
He'd talk about his day, and she's say "uh huh" for a while
He never helped with the dishes
He never helped with the floor
Once or twice he thought "well, I should be nice"
But then he thought "well what for?"

Cause she always knew just the thing to do
She always knew how to get it done
And he always had a knack for being bad
But he wasn't the only one
He wasn't the only one

She always got her nails done on Tuesdays
and then she went to the bank
and then she went to the grocery store
and then she filled up the tank
but then she went to his office downtown
instead of going to Penny's and Sears
they told her "He never comes in on Tuesdays."
She said "You've been so helpful, my dears."

Cause she always knew just the thing to do
She always knew how to get it done
And he always had a knack for being bad
But he wasn't the only one
He wasn't the only one

She made the necessary phone calls
She bought the necessary tools and supplies
He left the hotel at the usual hour
after telling the necessary lies
Home at six o'clock on the dot
She served a specially-spiced soufflé
and nobody did the dishes that night
cause he was dead on the floor
and she was bags already packed
cab to a plane to an undisclosed location
for an unlimited stay

She always knew just the thing to do
She always knew how to get it done
And he always had a knack for being bad
But he wasn't the only one
He wasn't the only one
