Tammy Wynette The Only Time I'm Really Me Lyrics

sponsored links
To my husband I'm an ordinary wife
To my chidren I'm the mother in their life

To the neighbors I'm the girl next door who washes every day
And I'm their baby sitter any time they go away

To the party people I don't fit their world
To my daddy I'm still just his little girl

But when I lie down and close my eyes and sleep
This must be the only time I'm really me

To my mother I'm a worry all year through
To the landloard I'm the girl who's rent is due

To the doctor I'm the one who's kids have colds and runny noses
And calls him for appointments on the day he closes

To the banker I'm someone who's overdrawn
To collectors I'm the one who's never home

But when I lie down and close my eyes and sleep
This must be the only time I'm really me

I'm all of these each minute of my life
I'm just an ordinary wife

But when I lie down and close my eyes and sleep
This must be the only time I'm really me

This must be the only time I'm really me
