"I'm A Dish Washer"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

All OS lyrics I found, including this version, were incorrect. (Apparently, these sites just link to/copy each other.) Among other errors, the correct OS line is "Whenever I detect... mem-bers of the other sex"; and my best take on "mumble mumble" in OS provided is "Young, and fe-male, my, my, but..."
I'm a dish washer
I'm a dish washer
All day, wash and dry (My, oh, my)
I'm a dish washer
I'm a dish washer
Here come some now

I was just a boy
When I... sought to find employ-
-ment; Found one thing employers dwell on:
Since I dropped out of school
They all think that I'm a fool
But I one job qual-i-fy well on:

I'm a dish washer
I'm a dish washer
At Kentucky Fry (My, oh, my)
I'm a dish washer
I'm a dish washer
Here come more now

My boss is fe-male
But, man, like a man, she'll wail:
"Could you have washed them any slower?"
I wonder: Does she know
That I've nowhere else to go?
At least, I can't "sink" any lower!

I'm a dish washer
I'm a dish washer
Pile mile high (My, oh, my)
I'm a dish washer
I'm a dish washer
How now kowtow!


Note to alvin rhodes re: "Whale Watcher": The Turtle is a whale watcher and spotter (for real, on the official phone tree/list), and, a year or so ago, watched a (highly endangered) Right Whale frolic for several hours in the ocean near the Turtle Burrow (not to be confused with Teterboro, thank goodness!). This version presented as a public service: Kids, stay in school! Don't end up like The Turtle! © 2006 Tommy Turtle.

Squeaky clean title. How exactly did the Turtle "end up"? I voted, by the way.

Adagio, alvin, Brad Schuman, thanks...

Royce, thanks... The Turtle ended up a poverty-stricken, poor parodist, unable even to discern RM's gender correctly, but he apologized to her twice - in "Royce Miller" and in "A Girl Named Royce". Hope all is forgiven. :)

TT, you have a great and rare gift of taking a simple idea and taking it through a song parody with flair and a giggle each time. Keep it up!

You don't know the talent of the writer for this song. Anyone who has to parody this has NO TALENT for themselves. They are frekin losers. I know the writer and his entire family. We are currently laughing at YOU losers who have to steal someone with real talent. GET A LIFE. I'm a LOSER WATCHER..and you are IT>

Ellen, I love the OS. Some parodies are to make fun of the OS, but others are simply taking a tune you enjoy, or that fits an idea that you have, and putting a twist on it for a few laughs. This is the latter.

Which writer do you know, Buck Trail or Wayne Pitman? Whichever, give them my regards. I agree about their talent. Thanks for stopping by.

@ zzz: Thanks for reading and for the cryptic comment, but what does "hdu" mean?
