The Lyrics

Stereotyping: bad. Comedy: good. Yes, I know - this is only the FIFTH "Secret Asian Man" parody on here - but thirty years of singing a parody in the shower can take its toll on a writer. And the stains in my shirts...they just WON'T GO AWAY!!! IT'S KILLING ME!!!
There's a man who lives a life that you chose
For everyone he meets he washes their clothes
The stereotype's his bane
Ph.D. down the drain
Odds are that your laundry's done tomorrow.

Secret Asian man
Secret Asian man
He's given you your laundry
And taken away your stain.

Beware of all the questions that you will get,
Someone wants the "ancient Chinese secret"
Can't send white shirts out gray
Typecasted me this way
Odds are that your laundry's done tomorrow.

Secret Asian man
Secret Asian man
He's given you your laundry
And taken away your stain.

Solving the world's problems on a Monday
Hanging up dry cleaning the next Sunday
The stereotype's his bane
"Can you remove this stain?"
Odds are that your laundry's done tomorrow.

Secret Asian man
Secret Asian man
He's given you your laundry
And taken away your stain.
Home of the Old Comedywriter Where the shirts are clean, and so is the comedy.

This is clever and funny, Earl. I thought the PhD comment was astute--with all the jobs leaving this country the way they are, pretty soon we're ALL going to be washing laundry. Good job, 5s!

As a kid hearing the original , I would swear the lyrics were for some secret Asian man. I know yours is parody but figure others may have heard it my way. Enjoyed your rendition.

Laundry? Ph.D.? Not every Asian works in a laundromat or is a doctor. Thanks for perpetuating stereotypes.
