LEAVE THE DISHES IN THE SINK, MA (Milton Berle / Gene Doyle / Spike Jones) Spike Jones & his City Slickers (vocal: Del Porter) - 1944 Pa started in 'a running When he heard the whistle blow. The Postman brought a letter, And airmail from our Joe. It said "I've come back safely From across the ocean blue." Then Pa took off Ma's apron And he hollered out "Yahoo!" Oh leave the dishes in the sink, Ma, Leave the dishes in the sink. Each dirty plate will have to wait Tonight we're going to celebrate. Leave the dishes in the sink. Pa started in 'a jigging And he cried, "Pa shake a leg! I'm going down the cellar Cause there's cider in the keg. The baloney's in the icebox. There's cheese and pickles, too. We'll call in all the neighbors Cause tonight's our night. Yahoo!" Oh leave the dishes in the sink, Ma, Leave the dishes in the sink. Each dirty plate will have to wait Tonight we're going to celebrate. Leave the dishes in the sink. (Musical Break) Sy began 'a fiddling And the dancing was begun. Then Grandpa took his coat off And yelled, "Partner's everyone!" So each one picked a partner And they counted out, "One, two" And Ma she twirled so pretty They all hollered, "Yahoo!" Oh leave the dishes in the sink, Ma, Leave the dishes in the sink. Each dirty plate will have to wait Tonight we're going to celebrate. Leave the dishes in the sink. And while they all were dancing The door flew open wide And everybody stopped As Sergeant Joey stepped inside. He shouted out, "Attention!" And everybody knew To bother with the dishes Was not the thing to do. Leave the dishes in the sink, Ma, Leave the dishes in the sink. Each dirty plate will have to wait Tonight we're going to celebrate. Leave the dishes in the sink. (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2005)
