Robert Palmer – Housework lyrics

Wave goodbye from out of the window
Good-no trouble starting the car
Time for just one more cup of coffee
You know the housework won't wait

Where to start now? - time to get going
The housework keeps you feeling alive
Clear the plates and wash up the dishes
Rrr! - Let's go - now the bedroom

Make the bed and fluff up the pillows
The housework makes you happy
Shake the rug and open the windows
The housework keeps you feeling alive
Close the drawers and tidy the closet
The housework keeps you going
Throw the dirty clothes in the hamper
Rrr! - Let's go - looking better

Rrr! - Let's go - get the vacuum
Round the carpets under the table
The housework makes you happy
Dust the shelves and polish the glass-ware
The housework keeps you feeling alive
Make some lunch and take out the garbage
The housework keeps you going
Pay the bills and get the dry-cleaning
Rrr! - Let's go - time for shopping

Bread and milk and plenty of groceries
The housework makes you happy
Get some cash out of the dispenser
The housework keeps you feeling alive
Don't forget to stock up the freezer
The housework keeps you going
Get some wine for later this evening
Home by five! - how the kitchen

Rrr! - Let's go - make the dinner
Get the roast into the oven
The housework makes you happy
Peel the veg and then set the table
The housework keeps you feeling alive
Freshen up and put on some music
The housework got your dancing
Light the candles - there goes the doorbell
Rrr! - she's home - perfect timing!

Welcome back, dear - how did your day go?
The housework's nearly over
How about an aperitif, dear?
I'll get the dinner you open the wine
Pass the salt - you want more potatoes?
No more housework
Leave the dishes until tomorrow
Rrr! Let's play
