The Lyrics

Short, sharp and based on current experience.
Dirty nappies, feeds and crying

Put your baby down
People people
Wipe off all the brown
Hurry, Hurry
Make some stupid sounds
Gwuggy Bwuggy
Wrap a new one round
One more feed to go.
Almost light outside.

Dirty nappy people wash your hands
Dirty nappy people wash your hands
Dirty nappies, feeds and crying

Babies all around
love them, love them
Life is in your hands
Shape it, Shape it
Can't sleep when it cries
Nappies, Nappies
Nothing warms your heart
like your baby's smiles.
Cleaning is your life.

Dirty nappy people wash your hands
Dirty nappy people wash your hands
Dirty nappies, feeds and crying

The original song's from the early 90's, not 80s. Even though REM had lots of hits in the 80s, this one wasnt one of them. Year was 1991.

Having two young children I can sympathise with the sentiments here
