I’ve got a system in the kitchen of makin’ a mess,
Of leaving piles and piles of dishes 
With gobs of food, poor Bess.
I tell her how to cook the cow,
These tips just harass her.
I criticize and verbalize and generally attack her.

I know I’ll fool her, well, maybe I can fool her.
I hope that she won’t guess, poor Bess.
I’ve got a plan to shirk the work.  
It’s not too late to fool my mate.
Now I’m retired, I want to play,
Instead of doing chores all day.

When I’m cleaning and day dreaming, 
I accidentally break priceless antiques, 
Which really piques my loving mate.
When she’s dustin’, I’m a-fussin’
And tellin’ her to change.
To vacuum first so dust won’t burst
From carpets within range.

And the wash, oh my gosh,
What a mess it can be.
To pull out whites from colors bright
Is too much work for me.
Drying clothes I also loathe,
How I confuse things there;
Put in the jeans with other things 
And leave the wash and wear.

All these schemes, I must confess,
May not fool my Bess.
But at least I’ve got a plan.
