Womb Envy

From the album Ebenezer's Make Over Buy Now

by Romanovsky & Phillips

- Romanovsky & Phillips croon to us



When I was a youngster, playing house was all the rage

And I always played the Mommy, and they all thought it was

     a stage

But as I grew older, still I wished to be a lady

Not so I could have a man, but so I could have a baby!


Cho:  Womb envy, I know it’s kinda strange

Womb envy, but please let me explain

Womb envy, I know it’s kinda crazy

I got womb envy, I wanna have a baby.


Now I like my equipment, I wouldn’t trade it for the world

But I might trade it for nine months if I could only be a girl

I don’t wanna wear a dress or be somebody’s wife

I just wanna have a chance to feel the miracle of life



I’d do it naturally, no Playtex formulas for me

I’d study LaMaze and read Dr Spock, if I could just be blessed

     with pregnancy

Well maybe someday science will make it a reality

If it’s been in test tubes, then why not inside of me?

I’m every bit as loving and gentle as can be

Lord give me a chance to prove my maternity!
