Don’t feel much like cleaning
But we’re having company today
I have to get busy, hurry up
Prepare the serving trays.

I have to scrub the bathrooms
Down on my knees to clean the floors
There are so many things to do
I have a million chores.

Wipe the counters, clean out the fridge
Throw the garbage in the trash
Sweep and dust, don’t make a fuss
I have so many tasks.

Put books away and papers, too
Don’t forget the magazines
Everything has to look its best
It needs to be spanking clean.

Cheese and crackers, a pot of tea
Some cake with icing just for fun
Can’t wait till I’m thru with cleaning up
Can’t wait till it’s all done.

  1. Dust if you must, but wouldn’t it be better
    to paint a picture, or write a letter,
    bake a cake, or plant a seed.
    Ponder the difference between want and need.

    Dust if you must, but there is not much time,
    with rivers to swim and mountains to climb!
    Music to hear, and books to read,
    friends to cherish and life to lead.

    Dust if you must, but the world’s out there
    with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair,
    a flutter of snow, a shower of rain,
    this day will not come round again.

    Dust if you must, but bear in mind,
    old age will come and it’s not kind.
    And when you go, and go you must,
    you, yourself, will make more dust!
