The Lyrics

Who's gonna tell you when
It's too late
Who's gonna make you clean
Off your plate
You can't have fun
Until your chores are done
Who's gonna dry your clothes tonight?

Who's gonna pick your stuff
Off the floor
Who's gonna fold the clothes
In your drawer
Who's gonna know to tell you
Wipe your feet
Who says to close your mouth
When you eat

You can't have fun
Until your chores are done
Who's gonna dry your clothes tonight?

Who's gonna pay the bill
For spring break
Who's gonna throw away
Your pet snake

You can't have fun
Until your chores are done
Who's gonna dry your clothes tonight?

I think I left out the last chorus here. Yeah, it's an oldie. I probably would have just repeated the chorus anyway like I did in the rest of the song. I'm ashamed of myself.

Take out those papers & that trash, or you don't get ~No Spending CASH~ and when you finished doing that, Bring in the Dog & Move Out the Cat ! YackettyYack: Don't Talk Back ! Don't give me NO dirty Looks ! ! Your Paw is Hip, he knows what cooks! Just tell your Hoodlum friend outside, "You ain't got time to Take a Ride "!!

-Blows off the dust- -Starts to choke- Great job on this parody (would have liked to see the choruses switched out with new words) but liked you said this one was sketched on the cave walls of the prehistoric Reuben household.

Makes me think of the Zits comic strip, although i guess this is autobiographical? :) 555

Little of both, Agri. Never owned my own snake :)

(Artistry) *checks artist page for when the parody was submitted* 2002? Holy monkey balls, that's an oldie! Still pretty good, repeated choruses aside. I repeat Agri's comparison to the Zits comic, and also his 555.

(Artistry) Cute, and a touching tribute to mom.
