The Lyrics

MABEL:

Poor laund'ring one
Your clothes are sorely stained
Bleachin' each load
Cries sounding woe'd
Poor laun'dring one

Poor laund'ring one
If such detergent as mine
Can ease thy pain
Cleansing each stain
Why, take it, it's a buck, nine

WASHERWOMEN:

Make soft, use gentle showers
Use all your clean-sing powers

MABEL:

Make clean, freshness will shine
If you need bleach, take mine
Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooooooooooooooo

Poor laund'ring one
All of your colors have strayed
You'll wear, I think
Everything pink
Poor laund'ring one

(etc.)
