The Lyrics

When you feel like you have a monstrous load of laundry . . .
(He did the wash) I did a load of wash
(He did the wash) I did it with panache
(He did the wash) There was no need to squash
(He did the wash) I did a load of wash

1. Looking through my closet, late one eve;
I noticed something that made me grieve!
The clothes rod was bare, so I began to cry,
“What shall I wear? Oh my, oh my!”


2. Then I saw it, just near the door,
My hamper was full with clothing galore
Pants and shirts, and pairs of socks,
One look and my knees began to knock


3. Now straight to the washer, I did go;
The hamper, still full, was firmly in tow
I opened the lid and began to place—
And now a smile spread across my face


The stains were almost gone,
The washer was going on,
The loads included white clothes,
And colors with designs on

4. The washer kept going, it spun and spun;
The first load of wash was finally done!
Tears, however, fell from my eyes:
I forgot, the clothes need dried!


5. Now here’s a lesson, you can take it from me,
Don’t let the wash be a hassle for thee
Clean clothes can look even better than new,
But if you come to my door, bring detergent with you!

Revised refrain

(Then you can wash) Then you can do your wash
(Then you can wash) You’ll do it with panache,
(Then you can wash) There is no need to squash,
(Then you can wash) You’ll do a load of wash!
