You reach your hand for one old mop;
I reach before, and I say, ” Stop!”
You’re out to gather Bingo’s poop;
I’m there before you; l’ve got scoop!
The dinner dishes—not done yet,
But I will suds them, you can bet!
You’re up to make the water boil;
Already done! Your cup, my girl!
I’ve tossed the garbage, dumped the trash,
I’ve dusted shelves and polished glass.
For your vacation; yes, my dear!
Now don’t you wish that I was near?
If I were there to work for thee,
I’d give you tons of energy,
And you could read and write all day,
And let no chores get in your way!
