The Lyrics

vera, do the dishes
wipe down all the walls
vera, do the dishes
sweep up all the halls
burp and bathe the baby
to the store, please dash
wash and dry my ol' truck
fix me roast beef hash

why don't you clean up things ?
i just don't understand
after supper...
do the dishes right away

vera, do the dishes
wash the pots and pans
fix the bathroom plumbing
fix the ceiling fan
serve me up some ice cream
go and mow the lawn
driveway sure needs paving
better scrub the john

why don't you clean up things ?
i just don't understand
after supper...
do the dishes right away

vera, do the dishes
don't you take all day
vera, do the dishes
while on the couch, i lay
do it now and don't say maybe
taters, you must mash
kitchen sink is stopped up
take out all the trash

why don't you clean up things ?
i just don't understand
after supper...
do the dishes right away

You sure know how to dish it out to poor old Vera. Do you realize that you may have caused an international incident with this parody? Do you? Andy Primus is from the UK and his wife called you a sexist pig. We haven't been to war with the Brits since 1814. You lookin' to start a third conflict with them or something, huh? are you? You can dish it out but can you take it?

Actually all kidding aside I found this parody to be a complete scream. Very well done and I LOLed thorough the entire rendition. This is pure Alvin to the bone. Now you have exactly 5 minutes to get the lawn mowed and 5 minutes to clean the john and 5 minutes to write me another parody for me to laugh at.

Vera reminds me of my brother because he doesn't bother cleaning up after himself after eating dinner! So I get stuck cleaning up for him. I'd tell him, but I don't want to sound like some bossy older sister plus he doesn't listen to me or my parents. Washing dishes is one of my favorite chores next to doing laundry. Oh, well, washing 5 cups, 5 bowls, and 5 plates for ya!

Well, at least this guy didn't ask vera to massage his feet. Besides, it being a Stevie Wonder song, maybe those might not be unreasonable requests.

Sounds like Vera needs to get her b**ch a$$ back in the kitchen and make you some pie!
