Nineteen years ago today country superstar Shania Twain reached number one with her hit song, “Honey, I’m Home.”
It was released in August 1998 as the sixth single from her album Come On Over. The song was written by her then husband Mutt Lange and the artist herself.
Come On Over, Twain’s third studio album, became the best-selling of all time by a female act in any genre and the best-selling country album, selling around 40 million copies worldwide.
The song was originally released following the mass success of “You’re Still the One.” The song went on to become Shania’s seventh and final (so far) number one single on the Billboard Country singles chart.
Twain has sold over 100 million records, making her the best-selling female artist in country music history and among the best-selling music artists of all time.
“Honey, I’m Home”
The car won’t start, it’s falling apart
I was late for work and the boss got smart
My panty line shows, got a run in my hose
My hair went flat-man, I hate that
Just when I thought things couldn’t get worse
I realized I forgot my purse
With all this stress, I must confess
This could be worse than PMS
This job ain’t worth the pay
Can’t wait ’til the end of the day
Honey, I’m on my way
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!
Honey, I’m home and I had a hard day
Pour me a cold one and oh, by the way
Rub my feet, gimme something to eat
Fix me up my favorite treat
Honey, I’m back, my head’s killing me
I need to relax and watch TV
Get off the phone, give the dog a bone
Hey! Hey! Honey, I’m home!
I broke a nail opening the mail
I cursed out loud ’cause it hurt like hell
This job’s a pain, it’s so mundane
It sure don’t stimulate my brain
