By Your Side
CocoRosie Lyrics


I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
I just wanted to be your housewife
All I wanted was to be your housewife

I'll iron your clothes
I'll shine your shoes
I'll make your bed
And cook your food
I'll never cheat

I'll be the best girl you'll ever meet
And for a diamond ring
I'll do these kinds of things
I'll scrub your floor
Never be a bore
I'll tuck you in
I do not snore
I'd wear your black eyes
Bake you apple pies
I don't ask why

And I try's not to cry's
I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
And its nearly midnight
And all I want with my life

Is to be a housewife
Is to be a housewife
'Cause it's nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to die a housewife
Is to die a housewife

I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out

All I wanted was to be your housewife

I'll shine your shoes
I'll make your bed
And cook your food
I'll never cheat
I'll be the best girl you'll ever meet
And for a diamond ring
I'll do these kinds of things
I'll scrub your floor
Never be a bore

Even when you're down and out
I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
And its nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to be a housewife
Is to be a housewife
'Cause it's nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to die a housewife
Is to die a housewife

I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out

Bake you apple pies
I don't ask whys
And I'd try not to cries
I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
I'll always be by your side
Even when you're down and out
And it's nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to be a housewife
Is to be a housewife
'Cause it's nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to die a housewife
Is to die a housewife
And it's nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to be a housewife
Is to be a housewife
'Cause it's nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to die a housewife
Is to die a housewife

I hear domestic violence:

"I'd wear your black eyes
Bake you apple pies
I don't ask why
And I try not to cry

'Cause it's nearly midnight
And all I want with my life
Is to die a housewife
Is to die a housewife...."

One of my favorite songs of all time. So much love to Coco Rosie!

Shandel Nicole

I think there is definitely more to this song than just being sarcastic or about abuse.... I think its more about strength than servitude.. Women are strong enough to endure all manners of things because we love someone. whether "black eyes" is literal or figurative is up to the listener. Maybe theyre talking about loving someone so much they would deny theyre Feministic nature to be a "house wife" for. Women have an instinctual nature to nurture things and take care of them.. how they do that is based upon the individual woman...being a house wife is not any less important than being a business woman... I believe being a feminist is not about mocking a certain type of womanhood ..but embracing the Right to Choose! whether someone wants to be a House-Wife or a CEO..Women have many sides to them ..nurturing  Sexual, Free-Spirted, Stern, etc..and feminism is about embracing them all ..and allowing women to feel..that  no matter what they choose and which of their characteristics they choose to embrace more...  they are lesser than No-one!

It's just a song for woman who want to serve their husband. It's so simple. But now days woman always try to find a problem .yes u can be ceo but in the same time wife and a mother.

Luis Gomes

And before you become a feminist or a Sexist (feminism for men, go figure why that isn´t even on the dictionary...) try to become a humanist first. When you have a male son who suffers from women, come talk with me, and spare me the "Man up" part. Holla.

Luis Gomes

the black eye part can be interpreted like nirvana's heart shaped box part: i wish i could eat your cancer when you turn black. It is, to take the pain of that person in order to protect her. Anyone that even imagine domestic violence on that part, isn´t either on the vibe or paying attention to the letter. All kinds of violence in a relation is wrong. We live and we learn, but that is another issue that people who need to love and heal should understand until we know how to deal with care, the love we carry inside for the other person.

No more CEO's, either men or women. Power is the source of all abuse.

I think tongue in cheek more than mocking

Very first time I heard this song I bawled. I've learned from my past & it's helped me grow. My first love wasn't love at all & I'm okay with that because I'm happy & stronger now.
