candidate’s wife’s rag lyrics – camille west

oh, the campaign trail is dreary
from lake tahoe to lake erie
and the days are long and weary
still i? m perky, warm, cheery
clearly it? s no easy kind of life
oh, it? s hard to be the candidate? s wife
i tell you
woman’s world did a piece on me
about how i raise my family
says oh how she slaves
while he’s kissing the hands
shaking the babes
time, newsweek, people and life
want to know about the candidate’s wife
someone in the press said the wives of politicians
are anti-feminist
words like that they really make me
wish i had a comment that my husband would approve
keep smiling
story of my life
it? s hard to be the candidate? s wife
