The Lyrics

We all know they go somewhere, but we never know where...
It is just a laundry ploy
(it's just a laundry ploy)
Just when several look all the same
(it's just a laundry ploy)
I say it's voodoo, voodoo that dryer's doin'
(it's just a laundry ploy)
Washer's finished up it's toil
(finished up it toil)
I sling 'em in the mundane dryer
Oh they gone an' snuck 'way, gone 'poof' hey?
Ain't gonna be no fold and fluff day
Oh the dryer ate my sock!
Or chocked it to Bangkok in Asia - it snuck 'way
It snuck 'way, snuck 'way, snuck 'way, snuck 'way

If I have thrown in underwear
(thrown in underwear)
It endeavors to play its game
(thrown in underwear)
I think it's voodoo, voodoo that dryer's doin'
(thrown in underwear)
Teleports 'em to Japan
('ports 'em to Japan)
Or dispatched to 'nother galaxy
Oh they gone an' snuck 'way, they snuck 'way
It does it if you please to bug me
Oh the dryer ate my jocks!
Or chocked 'em to Iraq in Asia - they snuck 'way
They snuck 'way, snuck 'way, snuck 'way, snuck 'way

I think it's turned 'em into lint
(turned 'em into lint)
Or maybe it set them all aflame
(turned 'em into lint)
Think it's voodoo, voodoo that dryer's doin'
(voodoo that dryer's doin')
Perhaps it needs a brand new seal
(needs a brand new seal)
Plug up teleportational hole in one
My sock has left me, it left me
It's gone right from this world to bug me
Oh the dryer ate my sock!
Or chocked it to a sock Fantasia - it left me

It bugs me, bugs me, bugs me, bugs me
(dryer ate my sock)
It bugs me, bugs me, bugs me, bugs me
(dryer ate my sock)

(Repeat and fade)

Poifect! But be careful: Malcolm is highly interested in just what kind of underwear you're tossing in the dryer.

As I was laughing at this one, I accidently clicked on the Maytag ad in the upper right corner. Suddenly I was looking at washers and dryers and I thought to myself. "These guys are amazing! How did they do that." Though I'd hate to think that would work for all the parodies here.

I know I'm late to the party, but this is so good! Love the echoes of PS's original lyrics. SO GOOD!
