"Washing Dishes"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

Washing all the dishes
Something that I dread
Gotta do the dishes
Achin’ in my head
See Thanksgiving gravy
Curdle in big clots
Food encrustments all stuck
Out with these damn spots!
See the forks, spoons and things
All piled on the bed, and the sofa
Washing dishes all today

Time to do the dishes
We have gone astray
Lingering room odor
No more time to play
Not that we are lazy
The day’s been short, not long
Wish we had a nanny
To take this role
The grease in this pan
Can’t be pushed off by hand, use a scrubber!
Washing dishes is a pain!

Washing all the dishes
Hands are getting rough
Washing all the dishes
Didn’t call her bluff
I said to my baby
Take that cooking class
Now she’s tried out pressed duck
And pate fois grass(?)
But if you are cooking things
Without following a plan
Then you will suffer
Washing dishes—you will pay!

I got a dishwasher but can appreciate this because I have washed dishes before somewhat, especially in my second apartment which had a dishwasher but it didn't work. Bubbly parody! 5's

This was pretty awesome, I got a parody of this original song coming in the near future as well, if I can get the extension passed it should be up on Monday.

Writing a parody instead of doing the dishes... been there, done/avoided that! :-)

(Artistry 70)This is why they invented dishwashers! You scrubbed up really well with this satire, Agri! And I dug the OS lots! Washing dishes is one of my fave chores next to doing laundry. Very enjoyable one from you! This will associate really well with Alvin's "Vera, Do The Dishes". Scrubbing 5 pans, 5 dinner plates, and 5 glasses with this one!

One method I came up with in washing dishes is that I can fill the kitchen sink up with water and add some dishwasher detergent in the water, so it becomes a bubble bath for dishes! And most of the clots and encrustments came out a lot faster.

(Artistry) The person who invents self-cleaning dishes will be a billionaire.

(Artistry) I dream of the day when someone invents a dishwasher that can clean the dishes that one normally washes without wasting water. That would be fantastic, almost as fantastic as this parody.

Amen TCOP! This one was very fun Agri, I loved the way you meshed your idea to the original and really think you may have taken on the hardest song in the Stevie Wonder collection, and you came through with flying colors

it's pronounced fwah-GRAH!! *ahem* I mean...I love this parody, and may I say it's time to invest in a dishwasher? They're on sale at Home Depot for $555
