Parton, Dolly - PMS Blues Lyrics

Eve you wicked woman, you done put your curse on me
Why didn't you just leave that apple hangin' in the tree
You make us hate our husbands, our lovers and our boss
Why I can't even count the good friends I've already lost
Cause of PMS blues, PMS blues
I don't even like myself, but it's something I can't help
I got those God almighty, slap somebody PMS blues
Most times I'm easy going, some say I'm good as gold
But when I'm PMS I tell ya, I turn mean and cold
Those not afflicted with it are affected just the same
You poor old men didn't have to grin and say "I feel your pain"
PMS blues, PMS blues
You know you must forgive us for we care not what we do
I got those can't stop crying, dishes flying PMS blues

But you know we can't help it
We don't even know the cause
But as soon as this part's over, then comes the menopause
Oh, Lord, Oh, Lord
We're going to always be a heap of fun
Like the devil taking over my body, suffering, suffering, suffering
Everybody's suffering, huh?

But a woman had to write this song, a man would be scared to
Lest he be called a chauvenist or just fall victim to
Those PMS blues
You know we'd kill for less than that
PMS blues
You don't want to cross my path
Cause a pitbull ain't no match
For these teeth a clenchin', fluid retention
Head a swellin', can't stop yellin'
Got no patience, I'm so hateful
PMS blues, premenstrual syndrome
Got those moods a swingin', tears a slingin'
Nothin' fits me when it hits me
Rantin', ravin', misbehavin'
PMS blues

It's the only time in my life I ever think about wishing I'd been a man
But you know that only means one thing
If I'd have been a man, I'd be somewhere right this very minute
With some old cranky, naggin', raggin' hateful woman
With those old PMS blues
PMS blues
I don't want to talk about it, we both could do without it
Got those treat your kids bad, don't you talk back
Gone ballistic, unrealistic
Awful lowdown, bitch to be around
PMS blues

  12. Idontknowwhattonamemychannel

    I just looked up pms blues on google because I felt alone and sad and I wanted advice. Then I found this and I feel so much better! Dolly uniting women everywhere ❤️

  13. Ari Pag


  14. Randy Wiesendanger

    when this song came out on her Heart Songs album I decided that I like Dolly Parton again since she went weird and hollywood on on us

  15. Paige Falcon

    Love this song

  16. thelifeofhannah

    This song single-handedly caused me to become a fan of Dolly Parton. I can completely identify with every single one of the lyrics. Man oh man, being a woman fucking sucks sometimes.

  17. Linda Teuling

    It's not nice to sing about me like that! :0 However, it's been almost 20 years since I've had any problem with PMS.

  18. Terry Dunican

    I played this song for my daughter once a month when she was a teenager. I absolutely love this song. Great

    Treamain Jackson

  19. Morgan Warlick

    this is the best song ever!!!!!

  20. Bj Redmond

    I love this song. Been there.any time I am feeling down I like to play this song & I laugh so hard it just lifts up my spirts.

  21. Kendra Nannette J. Jeffery

    I'm so glad I never had PMS. I try to stay happy. I'm not the type to argue or be mean. That's a waste of time. But I sympathize with my sisters. Hormones can be a bitch and nothing fits and everybody can get on your nerves. Oh, and that's not counting the road rage or screaming at the tv when the DVR didn't record your show.

    Kendra Nannette J. Jeffery

    And let's not forget those killer cramps, hellish headaches, and weird food cravings. All of us know this. Anyone else lay in bed, in the fetal position, an ice pack on your head, wondering if Doritos sandwiched between two brownies w a side of fries and a Diet Coke would be sooooo good at that moment???

  22. Spiny Sis

    Amen sister! This can turn an angel to a bitch!!

  23. Nrthrn Dncr

    Thanks for posting this! Wish we could see the performance, especially at the end.Would love to see what she pulled out of the hat to get that reaction from the audience. Thanks, again. <3

  44. vitaminanime

    i'm normally not a big country fan but i must say Dolly has nailed it with this song! it sums up PMS perfectly! this is a great song! just don't tell that to any of my metalhead friends (but then most metalheads are men so they'd never understand anyway)

  45. sudi karatas

    she should have put this song in the musical 9-5

  46. Luisa Reyes

    She's great! She tells it like it is. We've all been there! But none of us have ever said the truth about it like she has. I have to hand it to Dolly, I admire her for this song!
