Said Mary Smith to Betty Bloggs "Well! It shook me rigid
When Fred complained  it was a shame that I was somewhat frigid!
He even saw a psychiatrist and was given some advice
And, when he heard the gist of it, he gladly paid the price.
'I know now why our love-life has turned out rather stale!
It's all because you're female and I am very male!'
I was surprised but he went on 'I think I've been a louse
Leaving you to do so many chores around the house.
I've always thought that you should do the work that was required,
But now I'm told you're...well.... not keen....because you're over-tired.' "
So Betty Bloggs, with eyebrows raised, said 'Well, what happened then?.
I'm not surprised at what you've said: I know the ways of men.'
'Well' Mary said 'You'd be surprised at what he undertook!
He started making beds and things! He even tried to cook!
He dusted and he weeded and he did the ironing too.
I'd never known such luxury! It was like a dream come true!
My married life improved no end as he did all the chores.
I sat back in the easy chair and watched him sweep the floors!'
'And did it improve your love-life?' Betty was quick to ask'
"You must have felt so pampered as he undertook each task!'
Said Mary with a giggle' I know you're going to scoff.....
He was absolutely hopeless!
He kept on nodding off!'

An old tune but an eternal theme here:
