JOAN AND RICHARD
TWO KIDS
TWO KIDS
TWO KIDS
TWO KIDS AND ONE ON THE WAY!

JOAN
OH, THE THINGS THAT I AM PICKING UP:
SIPPY CUPS AND CHEEZ PUFFS
ACTION FIGURES, BUILDING BLOCKS
WHY’D YOU BUY ‘EM ALL THIS STUFF?
NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY, THIS PLACE’LL NEVER BE CLEAN.

JOAN & RICHARD
FOOD, LIKE PROJECTILES, NOODLES AND CEREAL
CUT THROUGH THE AIR AS THEY’RE LAUNCHED FROM THE HIGH CHAIR.
THOSE GERBER BABIES ARE CUTE ONLY CAUSE THEY’RE ON TV.

I MEAN LOOK AT THIS PLACE, IT’S A DISASTER, DISASTER,
BUT EVERY DAY THEY GROW UP FASTER AND FASTER.
WE TAKE IT DAY BY DAY
WITH TWO KIDS AND ONE ON THE WAY.

JOAN
ALL DAY, EVERY DAY, A PONYTAIL AND PJ’S
DIRTY NAILS AND BAGGY EYES
SAGGY BUTT AND FLABBY THIGHS
I HAVEN’T PUT ON A DRESS SINCE 1972

RICHARD
THIS PLACE IS A MESS.
IT’S LIKE A WAR ZONE.
HOW LONG, IS ANYONE’S GUESS
SINCE SHE SWEPT THE FLOOR,
OR COOKED A MEAL FOR ME,
BUT THIS IS OUR LIFE NOW.

SO MUCH MONEY GONE TOWARDS
FORMULA AND DIAPERS,
DESITIN, AND AQUAFOR,
CAR SEATS AND STROLLERS,
SOMETIMES I BREAK DOWN AND CRY
SOMETIMES I JUST WANNA SCREAM,

JOAN
AWAY.
TAKE ‘EM AWAY.
JUST GET ‘EM AWAY.
SOMETIMES I WANNA SCREAM.

JOAN & RICHARD
I MEAN LOOK AT THIS PLACE, IT’S A DISASTER, DISASTER,
BUT EVERY DAY THEY GROW UP FASTER AND FASTER
WE TAKE IT DAY BY DAY
WITH TWO KIDS AND ONE ON THE WAY

NO ONE EVER TELLS YOU THE MINUTE YOU HAVE KIDS YOU’RE A SLAVE

RICHARD
NO BOOK EVER STATES THAT YOU’RE GONNA STOP COMMUNICATING

JOAN
LOOKING AT YOUR MATE WITH A FEELING CLOSE TO HATE

RICHARD
YOU BARELY FEEL ALIVE

JOAN & RICHARD
JUST TRYING TO SURVIVE

JOAN
EVERY NOW AND THEN THEY FALL ASLEEP AT THE SAME TIME

RICHARD
AND WE GET A MOMENT OF PEACE AND SOME DOWN TIME

JOAN
ALL OF A SUDDEN

JOAN & RICHARD
WE’RE WATCHING ANGELS DREAM

RICHARD
AWAKE!
GODDAMN THE KIDS ARE AWAKE.
I THINK I’M GOING INSANE.

JOAN
AND THEN THEY’RE UP AGAIN AND SCREAMING,
CONSUMING AND NEEDING,
GRABBING AND BREAKING,
POOPING AND PEEING,
IF DIAPER GENIE WERE REAL,
HERE’S WHAT MY WISHES WOULD BE – JUST THREE!

ONE: FOR THE MONEY TO TAKE AWAY OUR WORRIES
TWO: FOR THE NEXT ONE TO COME OUT IN A HURRY
THREE: LET ‘EM SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT EVERY NOW AND THEN
SO WE REMEMBER WHY WE’RE MARRIED AGAIN!

I MEAN LOOK AT THIS PLACE, IT’S A DISASTER, DISASTER,
BUT EVERY DAY THEY GROW UP FASTER AND FASTER.
WE TAKE IT DAY BY DAY
WITH TWO KIDS AND ONE ON THE WAY.

RICHARD
TWO KIDS AND ONE ON THE WAY.

JOAN & RICHARD
TWO KIDS AND ONE ON THE WAY!
