A clean up woman is a woman who
Gets all the love we girls leave behind
The reason I know so much about her
Is because she picked up a man of mine – Betty Wright
Confession time…I’ve been a victim of a few “Clean Up Women” in my lifetime. Actually, I can’t call myself a victim but it feels like it when someone takes you man. Well…if he was really my man, could he he be taken? Let’s roll back the tape a bit….
In my 20’s, I had some really good guys in my life but I always felt like the grass was a little greener on the other side. You see, I was easily influenced by the glitz and glitter, only to find out on several occasions that all that glitters isn’t gold. You may be thinking to yourself, “Well damn Ty, how many times did it take you?” Chile….let’s just say that a hard head make a soft behind.
Here we are some 20 years later and I’m listening to Betty Wright’s “The Clean Up Woman” and thinking about the women who are or have been in relationships with some of my exes and ended up with some really good guys because I was “out having fun.”
I guess the saying is true that what you won’t do, some other woman will. Betty Wright said it in 1972 and it holds true today,
The clean up woman will wipe his blues away
She’ll give him plenty lovin’ 24 hours a day
The clean up woman, she’ll sweep him off his feet
She’s the one who’ll take him in when you dump him in the street
So take a tip, you better get hip
To the clean up woman ’cause she’s tough
I mean, she really cleans up
