The Lyrics

As sung by a Maid for Hire, who is a bit too enthusiastic about her work...
Hey nonny ding dong, alang alang alang
Boom ba-doh, ba-doo ba-doodle-ay

Oh, I just gotta clean
(th’broom)
To tell the truth it’s really scouring that I love
(th’broom)
Adore my job ‘cause it came to me straight from above
I just gotta clean, sweetheart
I’ll mop and glow ‘n then, th’broom, sweep under your feet again

Oh, if you’ll let me clean
(th’broom)
The liner in your garbage can I’ll change too
(th’broom)
I’ll even scrape that dirty gum right off your shoe
I just gotta clean, sweetheart

Now if you’ve got a job to do
Please, oh please, call my line
(dat-dat-dat-dat-dat-duh)
Do the loo, if you want me to
Wax it, polish and shine!

Oh, I just gotta clean
(th’broom)
To scrub your toilet is the thing I’m dreamin’ of
(th’broom)
I gotta tell ya, fighting mildew’s what I love
I just gotta clean, sweetheart

Th’broom, th’broom
Ya-da-da Da-da-da Da-da-da Da
Th’broom, th’broom
Ya-da-da Da-da-da Da-da-da Da
Th’broom, th’broom
Ya-da-da Da-da-da Da-da-da Da
Th’broom

Th’broom, th’broom
Ya-da-da Da-da-da Da-da-da Da
Th’broom, th’broom
Ya-da-da Da-da-da Da-da-da Da
Th’broom, th’broom
Ya-da-da Da-da-da Da-da-da Da
Th’broom

I’ll do just what I need to
Ev’ry smudge I will find
Plug your nose, ‘cause when I get through
Your house will reek of pine!

I just gotta clean
Your kitchen cupboard’s gonna shine come push’r shove
Then I’ll inspect it with my whitest cotton glove
‘Cause I gotta clean, sweetheart

Oh here we go again, th’broom, I’m keepin’ it neat again
(Boom th’broom)

Hey nonny ding dong, alang alang alang
(th’broom)
Ba-doh, ba-doo ba-doodle-ay

I just gotta clean
I just gotta clean, sweetheart

I just gotta clean
To pay my mortgage and my car payment, too
Degrees in English cannot do that much for you
So, I’ve gotta clean, sweetheart

(dee-oody-ooh, th’broom, th’broom)
(dee-oody-ooh, th’broom, th’broom)
(dee-oody-ooh, th’broom, th’broom)

Sweetheart

If you dress up like a French maid of course I'll hire you. lol Great parody here Arwen and good job glamorizing a job that has to suck big time.

You dug an ancient song out of the vault and put it to good use. I would like to find someone like that to clean my swimming pool.

The original song was recorded by the Chords. The Crew Cuts did a cover.

Good one! You can pay my house a visit but don't forget your hazmat suit.

Matty...hahaha...uniform is negotiable, mister!

2Eagle...thanks...I'll see if I can't find someone. After they clean your pool, I might come lay by your pool. haha. Tammy Turdus...I know.

Porfle...hahaha...I'll make a note. Thanks!

I may be the only one who can get away with saying this to Arwen, so here goes... "Sh-Boom" was by the Chords. The Crew-Cuts were the white group that took all the soul out of it. Not to mention that I thought this was a late Halloween parody. Nevertheless, it was very funny.

Mr. Pacholek...I know that the original artists were The Chords. I had intended to do this to the version by The Chords, but ended up finding the cut by The Crew Cuts to pace better for me. And yes...you can get away with saying almost anything to me...haha.

Nice work! I loved the "degrees in English can't do much for you" line! Great job

(Ages) For some reason, it's hard for me not to think about "The Super" (Joe Pesci movie) while listening to this song. Yes, seems like that French maid in this song actually enjoys the dirty work. Sounds like me...sometimes. I mop up my dog's "bathroom" most of the time, same with my dad. Maybe I should find a maid just like that so my mom doesn't have to clean the house anymore...well, on second thought, my mom would still clean the house eventually even though she used to have maids working in her house. I mean, what's the use of having maids if you're going to clean the house, I say to my mom. (Shrugs) Well, I enjoyed your parody lots and you have great talent and your always make use of your creativity.

(Ages) Funny, I always thought it was Arts degrees that were the comically useless degrees. That aside, great parody here, even if nothing was done with the scatting sections. 555 for The Cleaner!

(Ages 2011, Round 4) Great job here, I was offered a job at a relative's Jani-King franchise when I got out of high school, but took a pawn-shop job instead and never regretted it. This parody tells why really well... love the execution and pacing, which you excel at. 5s.

(AofA) It was good, but I've definitely seen stronger from you.

Abbott...thanks! I actually use my degree quite a bit in my real job...but I know a lot of starving English majors out there! haha.

Christie MM...I always appreciate your comments...they are well thought out and show that you've really ready the parody and thought about it. I appreciate that!

BPC...thanks so much!

Andria...thanks very much. I'm glad you're a pawn star, too! haha.

Blaydeman...totally agree with you, man. I wanted this to be better than it was. I don't hate it...but I don't LOVE it either. Thanks, though!

D-Mon...hahah...thanks!!
