Menopause Madness

Menopause Madness, It ain't no fun
freaking hot flushes, as hot as the sun
the bloody night sweats, that keep me awake
I'm moody, I'm clammy, my body does ache
as if giving birth, wasn't enough
the migraines too, I've had it tough
nearly every hour, the hot flushes come
give me a break, I'm trying to be Mum
I'm exhausted, I'm tired, makes me unwell
this freaking menopause, can go to bloody hell
Menopause Madness, we just don't like
do women a favor and take a long hike.
