LET'S DO THE WASH (VERSION 1)
Sesame Street


Version 1

(A room with a washing machine. As music starts, a man walks by with a laundry basket. A boy comes up, whacks the side of the machine so it starts running, then he sings)

Boy: When you're eating spaghetti
And it gets all over your shirt

Little boy: (coming in) When you're making mud pies
And you come home covered with dirt

Man: When you look like you live in a pig pen
And you don't even know why

All: (joined by a young lady, an older lady, and a lady with glasses)
When you look like guck from your head to your toes
Who knows what to do with those dirty clothes
Let's do the Wash!

Glasses Lady: It makes your clothes so clean

All: Let's do the Wash!

Little boy: Just put 'em in the washing machine!

All: I love to hear that soap and water slosh

Boy: So come on, baby

All: Let's do the Wash!

(All swing their heads round and round, imitating the action of the washing machine)

Young Lady: When you're skippin' rope
And the rope trips over your shoe

Glasses Lady: When you've got an ice cream cone
And it drips and it sticks like glue

Older Lady: When you just try to jump a puddle
And somehow it gets on you

All: I know a way that I bet we could
Get those dirty clothes lookin' good
Let's do the Wash!

Young Lady: It gets your clothes so clean

All: Let's do the Wash!

Man: Just put 'em in the washing machine

All: I love to hear that soap and water slosh

Older lady: So come on, baby

All: Let's do the Wash!

(head swinging dance again)

Ooooooooooooo!
Let's do the Wash!

Glasses Lady: It makes your clothes so clean

All: Let's do the Wash!

Little Boy: Just put 'em in the washing machine

All: I love to hear that soap and water slosh

Boy: So come on, baby

All: Let's do the Wash!
Do the Wash!
Do the Wash!
Oh......
Yeah!
