about

a live recording of Laundry Day...at my cousin's house...in Miami...

lyrics

I separate my clothes
into different loads,
I fill my cap to the brim with detergent
that's how it usually goes-

but an occasional break in my monotony,
I have never turned down-
it's a dirty world, but there is something clean
that I have finally found.

perhaps it was the heat
and the soap-smelling fumes,
but I found love in the laundry room.

So lay me flat or hang me out to dry
or let me shrink in the heat-
You laugh like water and it's lifting my stains
that I didn't have to pre-treat.

So fold me up and put me away-
just let me do my laundry with you everyday.

You are permanent press
and I am delicate-
what'd'ya say we share a gentle cycle
and make a night of it.

You could guard my colors
you could spin my cycle
you could soften my fabric-

I saved up all my quarters
'cause doin' my laundry
is now my favorite habit.

My clothes have been much cleaner
since I met you-
I think I lost my heart and a sock or two.

So lay me flat or hang me out to dry
or let me shrink in the heat-
You laugh like water and it's lifting my stains
that I didn't have to pre-treat.

So fold me up and put me aside-
just let me do my laundry with you all my life.

I wanna do my laundry with you. woooh-oooh. with you...

well I think my load is almost done,
but I could do another one-
yes I think my load is almost done,
but I could always wash another one with you. wooh-ooh. with you.

Spin cycle around.....

You are A-L-L I need.
