(I should have done laundry) yesterday


(I should have done laundry) yesterday

Yesterday
All my laundry seemed so far away
Now I need to dress for work today
Oh, I believe
In yesterday

Suddenly
I’ve lost half the clothes I want to wear
Can’t find any of my underwear
Oh, yesterday
Was laundry day

What I’ll
Have to wear I don’t know
This shirt won’t do
I spilled
Something blue now I’m screwed
For meeting day

Yesterday
Laundry seemed an easy task to shirk
Now I need some socks to wear to work
Oh, I believe
In yesterday

Where I
put my pants I don’t know
I couldn’t say
Goofed off
All day long now I long
For yesterday

Yesterday
Laundry seemed an unimportant job
Now I’ll look like a disheveled slob
I’ll wear what I
wore yesterday

This post can be blamed on the Monday Mission, a phenomenon with a long history of which I only recently became aware, and which is currently being hosted by Painted Maypole. The mission, which I chose to accept and inflict on any unwitting readers, was to rewrite some song lyrics.

If you enjoy this sort of thing, I must refer you to a masterful song re-writer. Mixmaster KC brought to the world an enlightened version of Baby Got Back, as well as a host of other insightful song rewrites.

Update: Still not had enough? To read others of this Monday’s Mission, head over here.

  1. This is why being a blogger is the best career choice. I did my first paid fashion blogging post wearing stirrup pants and a ten-year-old gimme tee from Starbucks. Everyone just assumes you’re naked anyway.

  2. Alejna, this brought a massive smile to my face. I thought it was poetry and rolled my eyes a bit, but when I read a little I burst out laughing and sang it aloud. I think the neighbours think I’m a bit dodgy now.

    Gimme tea from Starbucks? If I don’t trust them for coffee I certainly wouldn’t pay their russian caravan any heed.

  3. Mixmaster…Noooooo. (but I have a couple of ideas for an album maybe you and I can collaborate on!)

    I dig the song and oh, how I know the feeling!

    You are so speedy…

    painted maypole-
    Thanks for hosting it, and inspiring me!

    raincoaster-
    I take it you don’t need to do video conferencing, either. Me, I like to work in my pajamas.

    Jangari-
    Glad to have made you smile. Poetry makes you roll your eyes, though? Or just really bad poetry?

    Desertpea-
    Thanks so much!

    Julie-
    You are too kind! And to think, you used the word eloquent to describe my writing on the topic of laundry….

    Joy-
    Many thanks!

    jeanerz-
    Ah, but Jean. It was pants that led me to the theme. I felt I need to either write about vegetables or pants. And this is where the pants carried me.

    KC-
    Oooo, a collaboration. Sounds like fun.

    Jennifer-
    Thank you kindly!

    maggie-
    Thanks to you, too!

  5. Oh, any other week, this could be me. Strangely enough, today almost every item of clothing I wear is clean and I’m suddenly reminded that it’s time to cull some clothes and send them off to goodwill. I don’t have the closet space!

  6. Sage-
    Yeah, we’ve been there, too. Well, are there, too. We need to downsize.

    Mad-
    Ugh. That plumbing business sounds like a very sad song.

    Matt Foxie-
    It is a familiar tale. All too familiar.

    maja-
    Perhaps I will dedicate to you two when I release my album.
