The Lyrics

It's a 1957 Maytag and it's been around.
The machine is about to fry; I can see sparks at the ground.
The lid stays up, it won't come down
We need a new machine; I can't take that clanking sound
Got fire in the rear, burning hot, and it will longer drain.
Our desire is insane; we can't stop until we can wash clothes again

But sometimes I wonder, as I look at the squirting hose
That maybe you're thinking of going to Lowes
But I know, yes I know how to make this right
That's why I called the appliance store in the middle of the night, to say

We need more than detergent, detergent please let us see
How clean our clothes can be.
Because the dirty clothes are urgent, urgent, they're urgent

The dirty clothes are on my mind, they're everywhere, and they're easy to find
The 20 dirty laundry baskets are making me go mental
That machine is so extreme it can be so temperamental

But I'm not looking for a stain that'll last
I know what we need and we need it fast
Yeah there's one thing in common that we both share
That's our need for a new washing machine anytime, anywhere

We need more than detergent, detergent, its more than detergent; you know it's more than detergent
I wanna tell you it's the same for me
The dirty clothes are urgent, urgent just wait and see, how clean our clothes can be, it's urgent


Its not detergent, I say it's urgent, make it fast, make it urgent
Call quick, do it urgent, gotta run, make it urgent
Want it quick, want it urgent, urgent, emergency, urgent, urgent, emergency
Urgent, urgent, emergency, urgent, urgent, emergency
So urgent, emergency
