The Lyrics

Cleaner contemplates commiting Hari-Kiri.....
Now can you see me on my knees cleaning floors
Kneeling me down and scrubbing more
They have become so numb
Dont have a sole
My mop is hiding somewhere cold
Until I find it
knees are bleeding to
bone

(Shake them wide)
Shake the carpets wide
(I can't shake wide)
Shake the carpets wide
It's all the same
So save me from the dust
Bid my hoover run
(I wont make beds)
The jobs are never done
(Save me)
Save me from the Cleaner I've become

Now that my mop I am without
My knees are bleeding
Job's killing me - Dont wanna feel
Bring me the knife

(Shake them wide)
Shake the carpets wide
(I can't shake wide)
Shake the carpets wide
(Save Me)
It's all the same
So save me from the dust
Bid my Hoover run
(I wont make beds)
The jobs are never done
(Save me)
Save me from the Cleaner I've become

Ooooh Ooooh Ooooh x2

Frozen shoulder
It hurts much
Without my mop Im snarling
Oh so blue and in strife
making the bed

All this time I cant believe I couldn't see
Mop in the dark it was there in front of me
Ive been cleaning a thousand years it seems
Got to clean out the lav and everything
Without a thought
Without a voice
Without a mop
I want to die here
I can't stand it any more
Bring me the knife

(Shake them wide)
Shake the carpets wide
(I can't shake wide)
Shake the carpets wide
It's all the same
So save me from the dust
Bid my Hoover run
(I wont make beds)
The jobs are never done
(Save me)
Save me from the Cleaner I've become

(Bring me the knife)
Ive been living a lie - my pay didnt arrive
(Bring me the knife)

SCARY! but worth 555...ps was using "sole" instead of "soul" intentional?

Thanks! Yes it was - feet have them but knees dont... (it's soul in the original songs lyrics...) ;)

This would go nicely to "Sadie The Cleaning Lady" - an Oz song you probably don't know, but the lines are there half-written for you - nice work Lucid - 555

Thanks Stuart ;) I hadnt heard the song you mention but went off & found a version of it by "John Farnham" tho he doesnt sound very Australian - I now know what you mean! ;)

John (nee Johnny) Farnham was actually named Australian of the Year in the mid-80s - all Aussies recall his tearful acceptance speech :-)
