The Lyrics

“The Anti-Cleaning Song”

Here you come, here I go.
Hold on, not so fast!
Oh, take, take, take this list.
Do all that I’ve asked.

List of chores, neverending
I will not last.
Thought my wife was joking.
She wasn’t joking.


[Pre-chorus]
Gave the dog a bath,
And I took out all the trash.
I took out all the trash, I did!
But asking any more
Of me and I will dash,
But I will give you a hand, cause…

[Chorus:]
I’d hire a maid for you (yeah, yeah)
Get a servant prepaid for you (yeah, yeah)
I’d have them do all I bade for you (yeah, yeah)
And I’d make sure that they stayed for you (yeah, yeah)

I would find an able teen.
Buy you every kind of machine.
Yes, I would help you out, baby,
But please don’t make me clean.
No, no, no, no

******

Laugh, laugh, laugh at me.
That’s just what she did.
You can chuckle all you want
but you should know I never kid.

Rub dishes. Scrub dishes.
Dry before you stack.
Yeah, I’d sooner sit and chill
cause that’s a skill I don’t lack.

[Pre-chorus:]
Climbed up on the roof
And I fixed it in a flash.
I fixed it in a flash, yes I did.
But asking any more
Of me and we will clash,
But I will give you a hand, cause…

[Chorus:]
I’d hire a maid for you (yeah, yeah)
Get a servant prepaid for you (yeah, yeah)
I’d have them do all I bade for you (yeah, yeah)
And I’d make sure that they stayed for you (yeah, yeah)

I would find an able teen.
Buy you every kind of machine.
Yes, I would help you out, baby,
But please don’t make me clean.

******

[Bridge:]
If the cleaning wasn’t dire,
You would tell me to just relax.
You said you need me, so I’ll hire,
Cause I wouldn’t, couldn’t, shouldn’t help, baby.


[Chorus:]
I’d hire a maid for you (yeah, yeah)
Get a servant prepaid for you (yeah, yeah)
I’d have them do all I bade for you (yeah, yeah)
And I’d make sure that they stayed for you (yeah, yeah)

I would find an able teen.
Buy you every kind of machine.
Yes, I would help you out, baby,
But please don’t make me clean.
No, please don’t make me clean.
You shouldn’t make me clean.
Ooh, you're gonna make me clean.
Oh, no no no

If you'd do all of that for her I don't see what her chuffin' problem is... she's being unreasonable, Bob! ;) For a perfectly-paced and very funny parody - I'm giving three fives to ya (Yeah yeah)...

Giving a dog a bath is a pretty exhausting chore just by itself...
