The Lyrics

I have had this parody in my mind ever since I was a kid. I finally got around to writing it.
You see it all around you - good laundry gone bad.
And usually it's too late when you realize what you did.

And your mind goes back to the sign on the lid some time ago that told you...
LOAD CLOTHES LOOSELY and DON'T OVERLOAD.
If you pack too tightly, the washer loses control.
Your laundry needs large amounts of cleanin' and a whole lot of space to breathe in.

It's so damn easy when you're all in a rush.
To over-compact it...to load it too much.

And your mind goes back to the sign on the lid some time ago that told you...
LOAD CLOTHES LOOSELY and DON'T OVERLOAD.
If you pack too tightly, the washer loses control.
Your laundry needs large amounts of cleanin' and a whole lot of space to breathe in.

Don't let it ruin your day. Play it nice and cool.
Reload the washer properly...yeah, yeah, yeah!

You see it all around you - good laundry gone bad.
And usually it's too late when you realize what you did.

So, LOAD CLOTHES LOOSELY and DON'T OVERLOAD.
If you pack too tightly, the washer loses control.
Your laundry needs large amounts of cleanin' and a whole lot of space to breathe in.

So, LOAD CLOTHES LOOSELY and DON'T OVERLOAD.
If you pack too tightly, the washer loses - yeah, it will lose control.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

So, LOAD CLOTHES LOOSELY and DON'T OVERLOAD.
If you pack too tightly, the washer loses control.

LOAD CLOTHES LOOSELY and DON'T OVERLOAD.
If you pack too tightly, the washer loses control.
Oh, yeah...yeah.

I need to post this at my job. Barely remember the original song but good job.

Could have used some variation in the chorus, but very funny idea. I'll hand you 555 in quarters for your next laundry trip.

Good poing Agri...just got lazy cause the lyrics are just as monotonous in the real song. Mike
