The Lyrics

(Me, snapping fingers:)
What a bash
We had for my birthday--
China plates
And silverware, too!

Zero waste--
'Cause every day's Earth Day!
I got a lot of dishes
To do!

We had steaks
And barbecued chicken--
Curried Spam,
And snails au pistou!

Now those plates,
They're ready for lickin'!
I got a lot of dishes
To do!

The dishwasher's broke,
Know it's been months,
Gonna get fixed--

Food was great--
Although it sticks!

Time to roll
My sleeves to the triceps,
Fill a bowl
With sudsy perfume--

I'm the King!
Just check out these biceps!
I got a lot of dishes
To do!!

(Tempo slowing down--tom-toms beating--Mrs. G. flings her apron in my face)

(Mrs. G:)
There were men
Both hungry and famished,
Wolfin' down
That raw caribou!

Then some slob
Walked off with my Spammich!
And left a pile of dishes
For YOU!!

There's Ajax and gloves,
Barkeeper's Friend,
And Simple Green!

YOU'RE Mr. Clean!

And experts who foraged
For dead squirrels
And 'shrooms from Peru

Cooked 'em up
With garlic and borage,
And brought a lot of vintage

(Seven minute flashback--mosh pit dance number--herky-jerking movements--stomach-clutching--inflated cheeks about to burst--hands over mouths)

We were ragin' the rage,
Doin' the Wave,
Havin' such fun!

"Noreen's down--
Call 9-1-1!!!"

(Me, back to the present:)
Whoa! Bathroom’s trashed!
Walls covered in vomit!
Someone crapped
Inside the tub, too!

Floor's a mess!
YOU scrub it with Comet!
I got a lot of dishes--
Look at all these dishes!
I have got a lot of dishes
To do!!!

(Mrs. G. runs out screaming)
