#songshare – Sadie the Cleaning Lady

I am inspired by the song “Crazy” shared byย Spirited Soul

It is a completely different style of song, and yet, every time I hear this song, it gives me smile.

Sadie the Cleaning Lady – John Farnham

 

 

Sadie, the cleaning lady
With trusty scrubbing brush and pail of water
Worked her fingers to the bone, for the life she had at home
Providing at the same time for her daughter
Ahh Sadie, the cleaning lady
Her aching knees not getting any younger
Well her red detergent hands, have for years not held a man’s
And time would find her heart expired of hunger
Scrub your floors, do your chores, dear old Sadie
Looks as though you’ll always be a cleaning lady
Can’t afford to get bored dear old Sadie
Looks as though you’ll always be a cleaning lady
Ahh Sadie, the cleaning la-ady
Her female mind would find a way of trapping
Though as gentle as a lamb, Sam the elevator man
So she could spend the night by TV, napping
Ahh Sadie, the cleaning lady
Her aching knees not getting any younger
Well her red detergent hands, have for years not held a man’s
And time would find her heart expired of hunger
Ahh, scrub your floors, do your chores, dear old Sadie
Looks as though you’ll always be a cleaning lady
Can’t afford to get bored dear old Sadie
Looks as though you’ll always be a cleaning lady
Ahh Sadie, the cleaning lady
Her Sam was what she got, hook, line and sinker
To her sorrow and dismay, she’s still working to this day
Her Sam turned out to be a nervous figure
Ahh, scrub your floors, do your chores, dear old Sadie
Looks as though you’ll always be a cleaning lady
Can’t afford to get bored dear old Sadie (fade)

      1. I just had to google that term lol. Rick-rolling is always perfectly acceptable, so long as you’re not the person being rick-rolled! ๐Ÿ˜‰
