The Lyrics

I don't know why I love you like I do
All the money that you put me through
I take my jackets, my shirts and my vests
And have them dry cleaned, folded and pressed
I wanna know
Can you help me
doing my laundry?

Take me to the cleaners, Drop me in the water
Take me to the cleaners, Drop me in the water

I don't know why I treat you so bad
Think of all the stains that I used to have
The cup of coffee I spilled on my shirt
It left a stain, and boy did it hurt
I wanna know
Do I spot clean
Or do I use a spray?

Take me to the cleaners, Drop me in the water
Take me to the cleaners, Drop me in the water

Spray me
Steam me
Dry me
Clean me
'Till I can't
'Till I can't
I can't pay no more

I don't know why my cleaning's all you do
You should do my tailoring too
Hem up my pant's so they aren't too long
Take in my jacket so it won't fit me wrong
You're a big help
I wanna thank you
But what would I say?

Take me to the cleaners, Drop me in the water
Take me to the cleaners, Drop me in the water
