Because you've been so good:
Sometime Soon
– tto 'Someday Soon'  Lyrics by Laramie Sasseville


Dishes stacked up in the sink, utensils, pots and pans,

From meals in which I have partaken,

Some just in from supper and some from who knows when,

Sometime soon, gonna wash  ‘em, sometime soon.

 

I really do not like to see that grungy bathtub ring,

Scale build-up on fixtures leaves me cryin’

I would take a scrub brush to the whole dang thing -

Sometime soon, gonna scrub it sometime soon.

 

But there’s no time to clean,

I’ve got more urgent chores to do,

Guess it’s cause I’m a writer with a day job too…

 

So grow, you dirty dish stack, grow you dust piles, too

My next book launches in just eighteen days -

I love my books and stories more than I love things clean,

Sometime soon, gonna scrub it, sometime soon.

 

But there’s no time to clean, I’ve got more urgent chores to do,

Guess it’s cause I’m a writer with a day job too…

 

So grow, you dirty dish stack, grow you dust piles, too

My next book launches in just fourteen days -

I love my books and stories more than I love things clean,

Sometime soon, gonna wash 'em, sometime soon.

Sometime soon, gonna scrub it, sometime soon.
