(This one is a tongue-in-cheek attempt at a c/w song)
I never thought when we got married
I'd sit home Friday night
Cookin' my own dinner,
With no one else in sight.

But lately Friday evenings
There's nobody there
As I watch reruns of "Hee-Haw",
And lose at solitaire.

You go out and party,
Drink and dance the night away.
While I'm at home, I'm all alone.
It ain't supposed to be this way.

I always thought when we got married
We'd have a happy home.
But these days I find I'm lonelier 
Than I was when I was alone.

I always thought when we got married
We'd make love night 'n' day
But lately when I touch you
you just push me away.

You always say that you're too tired
Even if it's just past ten.
But you never seem to be too tired 
To dance with other men.

My friends all think I'm happy,
But if the truth be known
These days I 'm even lonelier
Than I was when I was alone
