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

All I wanted was to be your housewife

I'll shine your shoes
I'll make your bed

I'll never cheat
I'll be the best girl you'll ever meet

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 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

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

melanie rosé

i love this song but it makes me feel very weird always

Tokyo est mon jardin

That's probably the point. They are smart like that.

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.

Tiffany Hos

yes💪 say it

Michael Urban-Reed

Treating life like the artistic experiment it is

Amy Jones

Very Wattsian. :)

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!
