Editor’s Note: Enjoy this personal message from Tim Hawkins straight to us!
This may be the most amazing song I have ever written, or it may not be. Let the vagueness intrigue you. Don’t doubt me, though. These stanzas are about real life. As real as it gets. No music required — the lyrics will suffice to express the deepest part of my soul.
My wife was out for three days to visit her mom
I was supposed to cook and clean while she was gone
Somehow she never buckles under all the demands
I had to know her secret, I had to understand
Well I thought it might be coffee but that gives her the shakes
It might be soap operas but she says they’re too fake
It’s not the car she drives or what she puts in her hair
I realized it’s got to be something that she wears
Yoga pants, she wears them all day
Yoga pants, at work and at play
Yoga pants, what’s all the fuss?
What makes them so special that they keep them from us?
Well any normal person would leave it alone
But I’m not a normal person and nobody was home
My wife was out of town and the kids were outside
I went into the bedroom and decided I would try… her
Yoga pants, so stretchy and thin
Yoga pants, feels like my own skin
I’ve never done yoga, but these make me want to try
Yoga pants, so soft and so sleek
Yoga pants, feels good on my cheeks
Yoga pants, I’ll just say thanks
I don’t wear yoga pants… I wear Spanx
