This is a song by Ween, from the album 12 Golden Country Greats.

A bawdy, halfway-hollered country song that has Gene Ween describing the horrid aspects of life with his girlfriend and kicking her to the curb. I once made up a line dance to this and did it with my friend on video, which is slightly embarrassing.

my dinner's on fire
while she watches TV
and if you've ever wondered
what it's like to be me
she takes all my money
and leaves me no smokes
yells at my buddies
and insults my folks
i'm breakin' my back doin' the best that i can
she's got time for the dog and none for her man
and i'm no dope
but i can't cope
so hit the fuckin' road and piss up a rope

The song sounds completely, purely country, from the beat to the accent, but the lyrics get more and more typically Ween-disgusting; at one point Gene suggests that the girl wash his balls with a warm wet rag. It is comforting to know that even if the Ween Machine can produce an album of all country songs, there's still this piece of them that stays unchanged.
