I’VE GOT A PLAN
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.
REFRAIN 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.
Sung by Courtland Peterson
Extended Keywords: This is played by a swing band and uses the standard blues progression. The lyrics are a lot of fun and retired men can probably relate to them very well. But so can non-retired men!
