The Lyrics

I came home from work one night, was lookin' for clothes to wear
I then asked my wife, why I have no underwear
"Hey, honey, can you tell me where I just might find some socks?"
She just frowned and shook her head, said "No!", that really sucks

Do a load of laundry, do a load or three;
Do a load of laundry, and (and) (and) don't forget to add the bleach

I picked up the bag, I went downstairs to the laundry room
When I saw Javex and Ultra Tide I could sense the doom
I said, "Hey, Javex is for unbleachables"
That's good, I need to clean my unmentionables


The whites, the colors, I think they're all mixed up
I'll just add soap, and I think I'll need more than one cup
I asked my wife, what about fabric softener?
She said, "It just makes me itchy", so then I'll just keep softener off of her


The spin cycle dazzled me, as my boxers spun around
And when the load was finished, the washer made a beeping sound
So I put them in the dryer, and I threw a bounce sheet in
Gonna smell so april fresh, don't worry "bout static cling


Make a clean clothes pile now, make sure they're folded fine
The bag is still pretty full, this is taking too much time
I'll finish it tomorrow, there's way too much to do
The lint trap is full of crap, and I lost a sock or two

I like parodies that chronicle the trials and tribulations of mundane activities. This is a good one. 5s

You have a new name but I think you are somebody who has been here a long time, Mr. Alexander! Or...Mr.Mayfield! Is The Pomfret close?

I think it's interesting that someone thinks you are an old timer here, Squirrel--cause I didn't get that sense. I don't remember reading stuff like yours here before. Any response from you?

Thanks for all the positive comments guys. Sorry, Pomfret .. I am new to this site. I'm 37 and I've been writing parodies since I was a kid (thanks MAD magazine for warping me just right!) and I never had them up on the web before. Good call, Royce.

Another nice idea, and this one is a little better. Maybe you could try "Dirty Laundry" by Don Henley.

(ABC) Very well done, very funny and clever.

(ABC) This song has deserved a parody for a long time, but I never thought of it until I read yours. Good job, as usual...a funny idea, carried to its logical conclusion, with a cute kicker in the last verse.

(ABC) Never do today what your wife will get digusted and finish for you, right? Cute.

(ABC05) I think that UFOs steal socks from the laundry. That or relatives of the South Park underwear gnomes. Great parody Mikey.

(ABC2005) Loved the 'softener/off of her' couplet, an enjoyable read.

(L) ah, I loved that one, Mikey - "static cling" was a great get - one of my favourite scenes from Wayne's World is where Kim Basinger is in the laundromat with Garth and hands Garth his underpants, fresh from the dryer, and they're the size of a drink coaster

Big thank-yous to Johnny, Agri, Adagio, Red Ant, Luke, Scathe and Stu. Great comments like these make writing parodies on common household chores all worth the while :) Ooops gotta go.. clothes just finished the rinse cycle...
