Built Three Houses

Built our first house with lots of blahs
Many blacks and whites, no fah—lah-lahs.
My husband had a lot to say,
He rather insisted on his way.

Our second house had a bit more color.
Got my preferences in one way or another.
We had been married a bit longer then.
It was more comfortable to argue with him.

We have built three houses together now.
He has learned there will be a lot less ow,
And he will have a lot more fun each day
If he steps back and lets me have my way.
