Victoria University College Capping Carnival, 1921. "Done to Death"

1. Laundry Chorus

1. Laundry Chorus.

Each day we wash anew
Clothes red and white and blue,
And peg them out in line.
Of Hudson's we've lost hope,
We don't use Sunlight Soap;
But still our washing's very fine.

Just watch us rub
As we wash and scrub.
There is no dub
In Laundrytown.
Clothes turn and twist
As we twirl our wrist,
And every time we rub, the suds fly
up and down.

We peg them out each day
In a neat and nice long row,
And we can shew the way
That will make them white as snow.
Forever toil on the clothes you soil
Always on the boil in Laundrytown.

Shirts and silk collars too,
And tablecloths we do,
And wear and tear and fray
Old dungarees once blue.
Nothing we wash is new.
When you take your clothes away.
