Goodbye Whining, Goodbye Stress, Goodbye Wife


You left, now I smile from ear to ear,
Don’t know why I’m so happy but it’s clear,
I just have one shadow now, not two,
I believe we know the second one was you.

I wake up, and eat anything I please,
Don’t worry ‘bout cholesterol, or calories,
There’s no list of those endless honey-dos,
I kick back and watch the early morning news.

I’d like to say, thank you, if I may,
For leaving me, so I could live this way,
No one tries to run each minute of my life,
Goodbye whining, goodbye stress, goodbye wife.

Some days I try to feel bad, or shed a tear,
Think back to us but I’m not sad, your not here,
Sure hope you are as happy, as I am, being free,
You gave me what I wanted; simple single me.

It’s true; I still sleep on my side of the bed,
But I can hear your voice complaining in my head,
Scoot over, share the blanket, and turn out the light,
It sounds crazy but I miss you most at night.

I’d like to say, thank you, if I may,
For leaving me, so I could live this way,
No one tries to run each minute of my life,
Goodbye whining, goodbye stress, goodbye wife.
