lyrics

I saw the picture
In the Ladies Home Journal
One afternoon
Well the very next minute
I begged my Mama
And Granny too,
"Oh won't you please make me
This pretty pink dress
No don't take long
'Cause I really must wear it
When I go dancing
At the firemen's ball

I'll wash all the dishes
Fold all the linen
Scrub down the floors
I'll beat out the rugs and
Polish the silver
Or any old chore
I'll rise up early
Do all the milking
Fetch all the eggs
I'll fix all the meals and
Take out the garbage
Make all the beds

I'll come home from school and
Do all my homework
And get high marks
I'll put dry pants on
The itty-bitty baby
Lord bless his heart
I'll shine papa's shoes and
Dust off the bookshelf
Or any odd job
I'll even take a toothbrush
And I'll clean the toilet
I'll never stop."

Well it took forever
Till it was finished
I couldn't wait
I tried it on and
Waltzed around and
I danced all day
Then I did my hair up
And I put my face on
And sweet perfume
I took your arm and
Now I'm dancing
Right here with you
