Man of the House Now

Words and Music by Matthew P. Hanley (BMI)


“Man of the House Now” is a fun, comical song whose singer is advising the guy who he suspects will be taking the helm at his house. It begins “don’t feed Ginger in the morning” because she, a dog, is fed via a timer. Things look bleak for the narrator, a self-professed loser who wails :

“You’ll have what I once had : a dog and a wife and two kids…”

“Man of the House Now” is track 8 on the Starring MH album “Seasonal Aisle.”
