Wives And Lovers Lyrics - Frank Sinatra
Review The Song (5)
Hey, little girl, comb your hair, fix your make-up, soon he will open the door,
Don't think because there's a ring on your finger, you needn't try any more.
For wives should always be lovers too,
Run to his arms the moment that he comes home to you.
I'm warning you,
Day after day, there are girls at the office and the men will always be men,
Don't send him off, with your hair still in curlers, you may not see him again.
Wives should always be lovers too,
Run to his arms the moment he comes home to you.
He's almost here, hey, little girl, better wear something pretty,
Something you wear to go to the city,
Dim all the lights, pour the wine, start the music, time to get ready for love.
Time to get ready for love, yes it's time to get ready for love,
It's time to get ready, kick your shoes off, baby....,

i miss these days | Reviewer: full-time Momma | 8/15/13
Even as a child of the oh so liberal and feminist '80's, I was raised on this song, and it didn 't do me wrong. After minding a small child all day in my yoga pants,and running around with jelly smudges and Crayola art stains on my shirt, I am more than glad to get all cleaned up in anticipation of Daddy getting home. That 20mins of 'combingthe hair/fixing makeup' really helps me get into the right mindset for an eveninghour that promises conversation about something other than the plots of Nick Jr. !S
Depends on the type of marriage you want | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/2/12
If you want a man who is your hero and your lover, follow the song's advice.
If you want a "friend" -- and a crappy sex life -- don't follow the song's advice.
Hegemonic View- sexist now, not sexist then. | Reviewer: Bess | 11/19/10
It's only really sexist in a modern view- this was when it was women cared for home and children, man brought home the bacon. Clearly we can tell we've changed gender roles quite a lot since then if you believe this song to be so.
Anyway, would a man or a woman want to come home to a grungy looking person every night? A little effort for your lover?
Not sexist. | Reviewer: kthnxbye | 8/13/09
It's saying that you should care enough to run a damned comb through your hair at the end of the day.
It doesn't imply in any way that it doesn't apply to the man too. After all, the housewife might take off with the pool boy if he keeps coming home looking like a slob!
How sexist | Reviewer: Lynne Khan | 12/5/08
I think this song is totally sexist, while the wife is going to all this trouble what is the husband doing.
My husband plays it in his car all the time and if I'm driving I turn it right down so I can't hear it.
I like the tune though which is also annoying as it goes round and round in my head. Infuriating!
