I’m a Boarder at My Wife’s

ikh bin a boarder bay mayn vayb

Rubin Doctor

I’m a boarder at my wife’s.
Guys, it’s a sweet deal.
She attends to my every need.
When I come home, she doesn’t ask any questions.
I am a boarder at my wife’s.

I’m single once again,
single like a young boy.
I’ve divorced my wife.
I thought about moving out,
I looked for a room to lodge,
but my wife persuaded me:

Why do you need to look for bargains
And be cramped in strange rooms,
And be alone and talk to the walls.
Stay here just like before.
Be a boarder now with me.
So like a boarder, I pay her rent.

I’m a boarder at my wife’s.
It’s so nice, so good.
Guys, it’s a sweet deal.
She attends to my every need.
When I come home, she doesn’t ask any questions.

I am a boarder at my wife’s.
It’s a pleasure;
I can get it all
as a stranger boarding at my wife’s.
I’m no greenhorn,
and every day, after dinner,
I lie down, just to pass the time.

Oh, earlier she used to curse me
and make a big hullabaloo,
Even when there was a stranger boarding in my house.
But ever since I became a boarder at her place,
she is so good to me.
It costs me little, and she loves me.
