Lyrics

Is Mrs. Smuts at home or out with Mr. Executive?
He's left the wife alone with a story but she reckons there's a twist...
If he would stop his flirting & love the one he's hurting:


That's a big if for Mr. & Mrs. Executive
And they're playing Happy Families again...

And at the dinner party the royal couple are a team again
She thinks they could be happy they could be playing to win again...
If he would stop his flirting & love the one he's hurting:


That's a big if for Mr. & Mrs. Executive
And they're playing Happy Families again...


And later in the town he's dealt another wild card
He tries to play it straight but the temptation makes it hard
Betting against the house but the house suspects
He's going too far...
