Subject: Spike Jones Song
From: Bill D

A friend who has NO contact with the WWW just asked me if I could find the words to the Spike Jones song "Leave the Dishes in the Sink, Ma"....and since 'ol Spike is at least as traditional as Bob Dylan..*wink*...I said I'd see what I could do..(a search finds CDs and such where it is included, but no lyrics...anyone have an old record around?

OK, here's my bet. In less than one hour, Gene will be on here with the words, source, etc. Any takers?

As a kid, we would sing this song at the top of our lungs, destroying it thoroughly in the process. I doubt even ol' Spike would have claimed it after we finished with it!

Leave the dishes in the sink,Ma
(Berle/Jones/Doyle)

Pa started in a runnin
When he heared the whistle blow
The postman brought a letter
An airmail from our Joe
It said "I've come back safely
From across the ocean blue"
Then Pa took off Ma's apron
And he hollered out "Ya hoo!"

Chorus:
Leave the dishes in the sink
Ma,Leave the dishes in the sink
Each dirty plate will have to wait
Tonight we're going to celebrate
Leave the dishes in the sink

Pa started in a jiggin
And he cried "Ma shake a leg
I'm going down the cellar
'Cause there's cider in the keg
The baloney's in the icebox
There's cheese and pickles too
We'll call in all the neighbors
Cause tonight's our night, ya hoo!"

Cy began a fiddlin
And the dancin was begun
Then Grampa took his coat off
And he yelled "partners everyone"
So each one picked a partner
And they counted out "one two"
And ma she twirled so pretty
They all hollered "Ya hoo!"

And while they all were dancin
The door flew open wide
And everybody stopped and
Sargent Joey stepped inside
He shouted out "Attention!"
And everybody knew
To bother with the dishes
Was not the thing to do
